Gratz had an opportunity to learn more about the “Influencers” and high profile teachers in the Pilates community to share their experiences in 2020-21. We interviewed Brett Howard to tell his history, present situations and hopes for the future.
"For me, working on Gratz equipment is like being in a stable relationship. I know it inside out and it naturally works. I can’t imagine working on anything else."
Virtual Pilates teaching has made an invaluable contribution to keep people motivated, Newer teachers have been given the most ideal opportunity to learn from the best on Zoom. This would not have been possible without having to travel in the past. Virtual teaching allows us to spread the work. Students and teachers on Zoom are networking and making new contacts. I also have had the time and opportunity to see other teachers at work and I appreciate their different approaches and cues
Adjusting to opening up studios again will be a gradual process. Like me, a lot of teachers have been teaching privates at their studio. However, virtual teaching has kept the method alive and much more awareness and communication has been created.
For me, working on Gratz equipment is like being in a stable relationship. I know it inside out and it naturally works. I can’t imagine working on anything else. When I travel I don’t always have the opportunity to have Gratz apparatus. I’m always so happy when I can teach or workout on Gratz again, it’s like “lover where have you been?”.
