About The Workshop

As part of Black History Month, the Pilates Foundation would like to focus on the inequality issues raised in the Black Lives Matters campaign. The killing of George Floyd in Minnesota in May 2020 led to an increasing interest amongst many of us to question our personal responsibility in this barbaric act, and the subsequent shooting of Jacob Blake heightened tensions even more.


You are invited to join a conversation with Ethelinda Lashley-Scott as she shares her personal experiences of racism at work and in larger society, possibly reflect on white fragility, the experience of being seen as an outsider and what it feels like to be black in a predominantly white country. She will draw her journey as movement practitioner and becoming a Pilates Teacher in the 80s & 90s and how this experience has led her down her current path as an educator and researcher.
