A Note from Joan:
The idea for Emotional Pilates emerged out of my personal and professional desires to understand what makes people do the things they do – a question that dates back to me as a young child, watching and wondering why people treat each other in harsh and unpleasant ways. Throughout my life, I observed people disconnect or distract themselves from emotional pain – to their own detriment, often leading to long-term emotional suffering including in their personal relationships. Out of my psychological work with women who struggled with eating disorders, sixteen years ago, I began developing the foundational ideas for Emotional Pilates. Three decades, thousands of hours of clinical practice and the past ten years of neuroscience research have been distilled into an approach that radically changes people’s lives. Neuroscience concepts explain why this approach to change works. Now, almost twenty years in the making, Emotional Pilates can help you develop the emotional strength, self confidence, resilience and self-esteem you have long desired . . . yet in a fraction of that time. In fact, I like to think that you can transform at the speed of thought. Let me know what you think.
