We are excited to announce a special edition of The Polestar Experience happening in Miami, FL on January 26-28, 2018!
Joseph Pilates wrote that Whole Body Health could be achieved through exercise, proper diet, sufficient sleep, good hygiene, plenty of sunshine and fresh air, and a balance in life of work, recreation and relaxation. Pulling from Joseph’s important work, Dr. Brent has created the Polestar Life Essentials to measure how balanced our lives truly are.
“With body, mind, and spirit functioning perfectly as a coordinated whole, what else could reasonably be expected other than an active, alert, disciplined person?”
— Joseph Pilates, Return to Life p. 17
The Polestar Experience is an intimate three-day conference designed to explore exciting possibilities in the new and vibrant paradigm of health and awareness. This experience will offer personal discovery, interactive discussions, observation, healing and experiential learning. It is specifically designed for those who are interested in making a difference in themselves and others.
Dr. Brent Anderson will lead the event with his leading lecture to introduce the Polestar Life Essentials. International senior Educators, Juan Nieto and Alexander Bohlander, as well as Nutritionist Dr. John Lewis, will share their knowledge on specific essentials to create a comprehensive look into these concepts. The Master Classes, led by Dr. Brent, Shelly Power, and Christi Idavoy, will bring the concepts together through the use of movement.
“If you will faithfully follow the instructions, beginning with the introductory lesson, you will without doubt acquire correct physical fitness with proper mental control.”
— Joseph Pilates, Return to Life p.17
