Benjamin Degenhardt  I'm a mover, traveller, teacher, presenter, and the founder of @360pilatesonline and #MarchMATness.

For 3 days we tumbled and rolled and stood on hands, feet, heads, and parallel bars. We removed the “dancers filter” long imposed on this work and instead looked at Pilates through the lens of its original spirit - gymnastics. The results: through both structured and childlike play, we got a tad closer to what inspired the Pilates method in the first place, expanded minds and movement possibilities, and carry some new exhilaration out into the world - after we’re done bathing in Epsom salts, that is...

This was the first time the “Pilates Gymnastics” workshop ran in its full glory, and I couldn’t have asked for a better venue or audience. Thanks to @wapilates and @hilaryopheim for opening up your doors (it sure helps to have JHP keep a watchful eye over us) and to all the wonderful beings who showed up to the fullest! ❤️ (many more pics to come, keep an eye on @360pilatesonline)

Beach shenanigans with @1kcoop1 to close out a wonderful visit. Fun, love, #Pilates and cartwheels... my ❤️ is full!

It’s a wrap! My 7th visit to @pilatesanytimeus included another workshop, 3 tutorials, a workout, and the special treat of a reunion with @stevenwashingtonexperience. Steven and I taught side by side in NYC about a decade ago, how wonderful to reconnect and kick his butt on the High Chair along the way 😜 Many thanks to @sbpilates @amyhavenssb @1kcoop1 @nicole__marie__ for another love, fun, and Pilates-filled visit! ❤️

When @pilatesanytimeus asked for radical self-expression for the Pilates party of the year, @jennazaffino and I went all the way into the world of sequins, glitter, and face paint. We may have outdone ourselves forever but when you’re in Las Vegas, you just have to be a little extra.

There are people who simply do their work and change the world for the better in the process. I didn’t know him very well outside of studying with him, but I could tell Bob Liekens was one of those rare people.

Shocked to hear of his passing this morning. Rest in peace Bob, “hartstikke bedankt” for teaching me and all the ground you paved in the Pilates world! ❤️

#tbt Getting ready to stand on the other side of this window again next week 🎥 Who recognizes it?

Participating in the PMA is a brand new experience for me each year, an opportunity for expansion and a catalyst for growth in my work. This year was no different.
.
.
I exhibited my biggest project to date, got to sit on a panel to contribute to a much-needed conversation around social media, and found a deeper level of recognition and appreciation for my peers who pour their hearts and souls into raising the bar for themselves and each other.

Thanks to the @pilatesmethodalliance for an unforgettable few days, it was so, so good to see everyone! #pma2018conference

I packed my bag and in it I put... lots of goodies for the 360° Pilates booth at the 18th Annual Meeting of the PMA. I can’t wait to give you a personal tour of the platform I’ve spent years to create (and counting), learn how you’re using it and what you might want from it (many exciting changes on the horizon), and mostly… connect.
.

If you’re at the PMA in Las Vegas this week, stop by booth #30 for a hello and an inside look into my biggest project to date. Oh, and follow @360pilatesonline to get in on our booth activities and “behind the scenes” from the biggest Pilates event of the year! #pma2018conference

Sending some good energy up and out into the world this weekend at Pilates On Tour Chicago, and I’m in great company. This weekend has been amazing and it’s far from over yet - thank you @balanced_body for having me!

I’m just so curious... how are you using @360pilatesonline?
.
.
Developing the website required immense focus away from the studio, but as I’m gearing up for a return to studio and workshop teaching, I’m fast becoming an active user of my own platform.
.
.
I may know sequences and spring settings by heart, and I’ve seen the exercises so many times that watching them online may appear redundant. But there’s something about quietly observing the movements, without the need to speak, cue, educate, entertain, that allows me to see more in them. More importantly, I get to make up my mind about what I’m seeing. And before I get lost in a single movement, the catalog quickly reminds me that I’m merely looking at a piece in a much bigger puzzle.
.
.
The result: I can barely wait to get on the apparatus, embody the work, and teach it with renewed clarity and thirst for exploration. What are your results so far?
