This workshop will cover the "original" pedi-pole, magic circle, foot corrector exercises and more, as taught to Ken Heizman by Pilates Elder Jay Grimes. What makes these Pilates apparatus unique and necessary? When and how should they be used to gain the greatest benefit for the body? How do they fit with the rest of the Pilates "system"? Toe corrector, 2x4, breath-a-cizer, sand bag, hand weight, and other apparatus and exercises will also be covered. Bring your questions, and be prepared to work out.
The workshop is open to Pilates teachers and experienced Pilates practitioners who would like further their understanding of the method.

Ken Heizman teaches the “original method” of Pilates, as taught to him for 10+ years by Pilates Elder Jay Grimes who learned the Pilates system and how to teach it from Joe and Clara Pilates during the 1960’s and 70’s. The original method is the most difficult and the most rewarding style of Pilates. It is Pilates, as much as possible the way the founder and developer of the method, Joe Pilates, envisioned it.
Ken is one of a few people in the world to fully complete Jay’s comprehensive teacher’s program. He has also completed several hundred hours of private sessions with him. Ken continues to learn, study and practice regularly to continually advance himself.
In Pilates, as in any exercise method, it is the results that count. Pilates performed with focus and control, produces great results quickly and thoroughly throughout the body. Ken attributes Pilates to helping him to overcome old back injuries, and to develop his own body into the best physical shape of his life. He began practicing Pilates in 2003, and in 2005 he began to teach. He’s been teaching and practicing, and learning ever since. Ken is passionate about his work, and he enthusiastically shares the magic of Pilates with his clients.
The Original Method Pilates Studio in Agoura Hills was created in 2015 as one of a few but growing number of Pilates studios in the world that teaches, practices and promotes the very difficult and incredibly beneficial exercise method, as much as possible, to the way the founder of the method Joe Pilates envisioned it. The studio contains over 20 different pieces of “original” Pilates apparatus. The original style equipment is made by Gratz Industries. It is the strongest, safest and most durable equipment on the market.
O.M. Pilates offers private sessions and workshops for teachers who want to further their Pilates education, and for anyone who has the desire and the drive to condition their own body to the highest levels of strength, flexibility and control through movement.
