ABOUT BLOSSOM

Born in Hawaii, Blossom moved to New York as a young dancer to continue her studies at Tisch College of the Arts, where she met and became Pilates Elder Kathleen Stanford Grant’s protege.  She has lived in New York ever since and now runs her own studio, Bridge Pilates in Vinegar Hill Brooklyn.

Blossom is known for her playful and powerful teaching methods, which she developed during the seventeen years she worked with Kathy Grant. Since then, Blossom has made it her mission to expose each one of her students to the joy and satisfaction that comes from intelligent exercise. Her ability to seamlessly integrate Pilates lineages as the situation demands is just one of Blossoms sought-after qualities.

Matwork Masterclass

This is the first time that Blossom has made it to Western Australia and given the extreme logistics to bring Brooklyn NY to Perth WA, this is a rare and wonderful opportunity to experience a one-hour Matwork Masterclass with Blossom on Aussie soil!

Not. To. Be. Missed.

Unusual Wunda Chair Workshop

In this immersive and practical workshop, Blossom will dive into the less common Wunda Chair repertoire. She will take you through a selection of these lesser-known exercises: demystify and explore how to broaden and deepen them to apply for clients with specific needs or issues, as well as those seeking new challenges.

Blossom has found that many of the less frequently taught exercises can accommodate a range of client needs and therefore deserve more attention! Add to your existing Wunda Chair repertoire with accessible new exercises, variations and progressions.

In-depth and Informed Reformer Workshop

Blossom will share extensive Reformer repertoire drawn from her nearly 30 years of experience in the Pilates Method, dance and movement. Blossom will impart an in-depth look at Reformer exercise variations, instilling the precision and application of the Reformer repertoire that has been informed by her unparalleled experience working with Pilates elder Kathy Grant, her training under Romana Kryszanowska, as well as her own long history in dance, movement and additional lineages of Pilates.

Blossom is an open thinking and reasoning teacher who applies an understanding of more contemporary science-based considerations to her work, with applications for all manner of clients and environments, along with a healthy dose of fun! This will be a highly practical workshop.

Connected Arms and Strong Torso

Join Blossom and explore a collection of exercises from Kathy Grant combined with traditional Pilates that focus on how the arms attach to the body.

We’ll play with ideas on how to use the upper extremities to strengthen the symmetrical or asymmetrical torso and learn how to effectively implement these tools for clients. Drawing upon her 3D Symmetry work, Blossom will impart an understanding of how to work with repertoire to address arms, shoulders, upper torso, head and neck issues and postures, that is so important in the modern day.
