He masterfully unlocks the essence of Pilates’ greatest secret - why and how Pilates profoundly impacts both student and teacher, weaving threads from other disciplines to confirm their universal connection.

“I am thrilled to see how far this manuscript has come. It has become very readable and I am confident that it will be well received. There is a fine line between describing the benefit of Pilates in a way that is grounded in examples and explanation, and advertising for Pilates. I think there might be a little crossover happening at times, but overall, Good Job!
~Marguerite Ogle, the guide to Pilates at About.com.

“Gary’s writing strongly reinforces an ongoing mantra of mine that there is much-too-much wisdom, insight and potential in Joseph’s teaching that is quickly being diluted and glossed over. As we move another generation away from the elders it is more important than ever that we take the time and attention to teach our clients and mentor the new instructors how to receive ‘the priceless gift of physical well-being, mental calm, and spiritual peace’ through mindful Pilates practice.”
