@SAMMIHAT, at the studio, over the weekend, I took a new class with a teacher I will politely dub, The Pilates Yogini [she is a big deal pilates teacher, primarily].
This class was taught in Yogea ArtFlow Yoga (pronounced "Yo-gay-ahh", not a misspelling) a fusion of modern dance moves and yoga done at a rapid pace, & it has all the spiritual bells and whistles I like.
Tonight I will take a Cardio Dance class ... I have only a few classes left; and being newly laid off, I will NOT be renewing the class pack ...
I "stole" two moves from this class, neither of which are pilates moves (sigh) ... Plus neither of which was crow, swapped from headstand (contraindicated for my medical condition -- I DO want to prevent diabetic retinopathy--I do a small handful of inversions yet, and headstand/handstand/full shoulderstand are none of them!) ... And THAT's a new development, even - from avoiding downdog held for more than three (3) in-out full breath cycles and avoiding them ALL ...for about 13 months
I am innovating my own pilates yoga fusion practice. Hot-damn-disappointed about the lack of inspiration in the exact way I was looking for:...
Question - Who steals pilates moves from a pilates teacher who would merely be on video ?
Answer - Mostly those who have no choice.
Lesser artists borrow, great artists steal.
- Igor Stravinsky
Find a way.
