As a PRI speaker I usually have a feeling of excitement about something that is going to happen in an upcoming course that I am giving. It can be built around the subject matter. That alone gets me excited. The anticipation of teaching application of PRI concepts excites me. Or the people that are attending their first or their tenth course, can rev me up. It’s the people that attend the course, no matter how many PRI courses they have or have not taken, that makes me most excited. People are like atoms, molecules, etc. because they all occupy an energy level above the ground state, that can be emotionally stirred up by other people. I have been looking forward to teaching this course at Pilates Central in Wilmette, Illinois for months. Donna Praise Byrne, Lori Sander, and Dan Houglum fuel you up no matter what sparks your interest. I believe it was 6 years ago that taught my first course at Pilates Central, and I talked to Donna about PRI Integration for Pilates. This Fall, she and Sarah Petrich will be presenting their first course. So exciting! And I learned that it is already sold out, which is so cool. To talk over lunch about this upcoming course was so fulfilling. The attendance at this May 20th and 21st course also included faculty member Skip George, who eventually will be teaching this course. Another reason for anticipatory excitement! Some shout outs to people who were so energetic; Jackie Addis thanks for keeping our veterans in mind when looking at head and neck dysfunction, Liesel Brown thanks for being such an awesome subject for lab demonstration, Camilo Evangelista thank you for your energetic and insightful application questions (you are someone I believe will be advancing PRI for many, many years), and Neal Hallinan, thank you for making symmetrical sense out of asymmetrical sense. There were also two physical therapists in the room who were from Poland, and received their education in Poland. Piotr Hemlich and Waldemar Sadurski, you should both know that I always get excited about people in general who are from Poland or have Polish backgrounds. So industrious! There were also 7 PRCs and PRTs in the room. All of this made me thrilled to be there, and I anticipate that this will not be my last trip to Wilmette!
