About


Going More Joe is like getting handed the skeleton key that opens the secret door hidden from view.

You are being escorted into the past, to the place where the magic happened. Joe wanted the world to experience his work and benefit from from his discoveries about the body and movement and breath.

Enter to learn more, there will be many ways to learn presented here, the options are out there. Try before you buy, experience the original intention of the works of Joesph Pilates.

Feel free to add to your already busting at the seems toolbox, you may decide you want more, let us help you find a teacher near you, or studio to study further and perhaps you will decide to do a Bridge program, or even a full cert. In any case, you will walk away with a much deeper understanding of what Joe Pilates wanted us to know regardless of how you choose to incorporate the work into your understanding of Pilates.

About Sunni Almond

sunni almondGoing More Joe is my journey, I was a comprehensively trained contemporary teacher with many years in, when I went to a classical event, and I met Jay Grimes, Moses Urbano, Jillian Hessel, Tiziana Trovati, and a few other very well known teachers.

I had never heard of them. I saw Russian Circus performers who do our super advanced work as their warm up, the excitement was palpable, and I knew once I laid down on the Gratz that my life would be forever changed. I felt as if I knew nothing and yet I had been teaching for years, but not THIS way! Of course it may be that Jay Grimes had his fist in my stomach the whole hour, and I had NO idea about leather straps and handles, and the extension straps. I felt like a fish out of water. I wanted more!!

So because I was single parenting with a few more years of that in front of me, I couldn’t take time away, had barely enough money to keep a roof over our heads, I could not afford another program. I thought I shouldn’t be penalized for that and classical education shouldn’t be beyond my grasp, Hell, Joseph wanted everyone to have access, so I needed to find a way. I have, and I call it Going More Joe, I did what I could, when I could. I have made a life out of studying, and and increasing my knowledge base. I had all the the contemporary apparatus, and as I learned, I bought, and sold and now have a full classical studio. No need to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but you may find you want to try new/old things, and get on these different pieces. It’s a love connection for me, and I invite you to join me as we travel back in time to the real deal!
