Low Impact Exercise Gets High-Tech Delivery with Pilates Podcast

Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) June 14, 2006

Fitness enthusiasts now can enjoy the first ever podcast dedicated to Pilates, one of the fastest growing exercise methods in the country.

Beyond the Movement is the worlds only podcast to focus on the Pilates Method, a form of exercise aimed at strengthening the bodys core. The groundbreaking show features interviews with internationally known experts; tips on technique; and success stories from around the world. Listeners can find the audio podcast at thepilatespodcast.com. The free subscription service automatically downloads new audio programs – podcasts – into an MP3 player. Subscribers also can listen to programs directly off the Internet.

Beginners, advanced students and seasoned instructors alike will find inspiration and information in biweekly episodes with host Heidi Miller, a Pilates teacher based in Colorado. She shares exercises, answers listener questions and talks with a variety of guests about Pilates and other complementary disciplines.

Pilates is based on movement, but after only a few sessions, most people begin to understand that it can be so much more than movement alone, said Miller. This Podcast is dedicated to providing insight into the body’s awakening as you progress beyond the movement.

Since its debut less than six months ago, Beyond the Movement has attracted more than 1,000 listeners on six continents. A sampling of episodes includes a discussion of how Pilates can help relieve chronic pain; a three-part series on the mind/body connection; and a rare interview with teacher Mary Bowen, a Jungian Psychoanalyst and one of five remaining Pilates teachers who studied with Joseph Pilates, the founder of the Pilates movement.

The Beyond the Movement website also features a bookstore and a listener forum page focused on four specific topics: a forum for discussion of the Pilates Method and equipment; a forum about Joseph Pilates; a forum for instructors to share inspiration and frustration; and a forum for listeners to exchange feedback on the Pilates podcast.

Miller owns and operates Mountain View Pilates studio in Fort Collins, Colo. Her broad fitness background includes a degree in exercise sports science and work in physical therapy and personal training. She completed the Pilates training program at the Pilates Center in Boulder, Colo.

Pilates is a unique form of exercise developed more than 90 years ago. It incorporates exercises done on mats and on specialized Pilates equipment. Pilates movements are low-impact and are known for improving posture and lung capacity, increasing energy and decreasing stress.
