    The Path of the Horse Author and Filmmaker, Stormy May: Beyond Riding

    in Pets

    Can you imagine a world where we don't ride horses, but instead, learn a new way of communicating with and learning from them? Author and filmmaker Stormy May can, and her film, The Path of the Horse, is changing the way equestrians think about their horses: no bits, no saddles....no riding.  The documentary is a fascinating look at the horse and human heart and the other-worldy potential for their relationship. 

    About a decade ago, Stormy, formerly a champion competitor, instructor, and judge in equestrian sporting events, sold her ranch and bought a camera.  She set out to travel the world and film the greatest horsemen and women, people whom she respected and read, and to learn a different and more humane way to work with horses.  Her journey uncovered research that challenged her thinking and led her to look at her relationship with her own horses much differently.

    She'll share her journey and her thoughts on horses in this conversation on Minstrel and Muse.

    Ask a Pilates Master

    in Health

    This week I interview Amahl Van Halsema, a master Pilates instructor. She explores how Pilates improves your body, helps rehab from injury, and gives you the body of your life! View her website at www.VHPilates.com.
    In this episode:
    Benefits of Pilates Reformer Vs. Mat Classes Pilates for Pregnancy and Postnatal Pilates for Multiple Sclerosis Pilates for Stenosis Pilates for Injury Rehab How Pilates compliments cross training and many sports - golf, equestrian, etc How Pilates benefits men  
    Amahl Van Halsema has been teaching Pilates for 25 years. She teaches a variety of clients ranging from ages 14 to 88.  Her clients include athletes, equestrians, housewives, teenagers with scoliosis, clients with chronic autoimmune conditions, spinal stenosis, and multiple sclerosis. Many clients with orthopedic injuries are referred to her by physical therapists, as she works well when rehabing people from injury or disability. Teaching pre- and post-natal moms is special for her, since she gets to see the babies born so easily from  their mothers’ Pilates-improved labor! 
    As a victim of two severe car crashes, she learned the marvelous value of Pilates during her recovery from multiple surgeries. She worked postoperatively with her physical therapists to incorporate Pilates into her rehabilitation. Her dramatic recoveries propelled her into further studies in anatomy and physical therapy. These studies greatly enriched her teaching and attracted many medical clients to her practice.
    In addition to private sessions, she offers small group reformer classes at her studio in Santa Monica, Ca.
