I first heard of the Standing Pilates repertoire from Kathy Corey, it used to be an integral part of Mat classes in New York but has since been lost to the mainstream. Although this book does not feature the orginal sequence, it has many excellent adaptations to the Mat repertoire to really enhance your sessions and give effective variations for clients with conditions such as Osteoporosis.

Eve Gentry (1909-1994) was one of the original students and appears in many of the photos and archival footage we see. I could not wait to watch this DVD recorded in 1991 containing highlights of a two day workshop she ran. I was not disappointed as I was hooked within 2 minutes of watching when she describes a wonderful way of creating alignment! Please click here to read the review...
Here is a famous piece of archival footage of Eve being trained by Joe.
