Meet The Session Presenters
Elizabeth Jones-Boswell, M.Ed., PMA-CPT is a Master Pilates Teacher, Movement Therapist and Author. By combining Pilates’ work with her dance training and studies in Bartinieff and Feldenkrais,she formulated a system of exercise that works with anybody.
Following a severe dance injury, she underwent two back surgeries in 1980. Doctors said she would neither dance again nor be able to endure childbirth. They were wrong. Embracing the Pilates Method to recovery gave rise to her own rehabilitative techniques.
Elizabeth began her Pilates training in 1982 at the Houston Ballet and continued her studies with AlanHerdman in London. She later studied with Pilates Elders, Fletcher, Gentry, and Trier. In 1984, Elizabeth founded the Physical Conditioning Centre (Houston). She developed a Pilates teacher training program for the Dance Department at Texas Woman’s University (early 1990’s). She has
taught at the Houston Ballet Academy Summer Intensives and lectured to Academy students. She was granted the distinction of Master Teacher in 2000 by Ron Fletcher. She created a companion book and DVD, “Exercise for Pregnancy and Beyond: A Pilates-based Approach for Women”, and four other Pilates-based DVDs. Visit her at www.pilatesrehab.org.
