Reviews

'Rarely do I pre-order a book before publication and rarely do I devour a textbook cover to cover - but I have just finished Joanne Elphinston's new book The Power and the Grace - a Professional's Guide to Ease and Efficiency in Functional Movement and I am very excited. Here is a framework that brings together my intuitive somatic Pilates and embodied awareness work that is also scientifically robust and clearly articulated.' Elaine Westwick, Pilates Teacher, UK, October 2019
