Intensives came about to make time for a deeper pursuit and discovery of what is “more” for teachers of Pilates. And sometimes for advanced students. More for the body and for the whole psyche. More time to think, to feel, to intuit, to sense and more forms to try. More to understand – imagine - more to open and more to release. Intensives are a gift to oneself for a deeper journey!
My Intensives have been envisioned as 1-1, offered and directed to a single individual at a time for 3-6-9 or even 15 hours over one to three days.
However, at the request of teachers who can’t afford to come for themselves alone I am being asked to extend Intensives to studios in my working area of Greater NYC, eastern Connecticut and western Massachusetts. A focus of 3-6 hours or more can be addressed to any subject or problem that a group of teachers chooses. Clients may be included.
For studio Intensives I would travel to your location if you are within the geographical area of my tri-state working week.
An Intensive falling into any of the categories above, or more, can take place at either of my two fully equipped Lifelong Pilates Studios in Northampton, Massachusetts and/or in Killingworth, Connecticut.
Psyche Only is also offered at my studio/office in New York City. (There is no Mary Bowen Lifelong Pilates studio in the city).
How would I describe the experience of an intensive?
For me it is a joyful leap together into Pilates, personal material and everything that comes up to be worked on. I find it a gratifying way to teach and learn to know you, going as deeply as we can in the time that we have, knowing that much of what is new from our experience together will travel back with you to be shared with others at your end.
