Featured Educator & Special Guest:
Nora St. John
I'm a Pilates instructor, acupuncturist and massage therapist who has been teaching Pilates since 1989 and practicing Pilates since 1980. I began teaching at St. Francis Memorial Hospital where I studied the work with first generation teachers Eve Gentry, Romana Kryzanowska and Carola Trier and contemporary teachers Elizabeth Larkam, Alan Herdman and Jean Claude West. Working primarily with injured clients at the dance medicine division of the Center for Sport Medicine, I was constantly modifying and adjusting the traditional work to meet the needs of clients with limitations. After teaching for 17 years, owning Turning Point Studios in Walnut Creek, California and starting the Pilates continuing education conferences Body Mind Spirit and Pilates on Tour, I was hired as the Program Director for Balanced Body where I develop curriculum, writes manuals and teaches faculty for the Balanced Body Instructor Training Programs. My passion is teaching new students and helping them to understand the universal movement principles that are the foundation of the Pilates method.
