Continuing Education

with Halle Clarke

Our Continuing Education Program is a cornerstone of the Mongoose Bodyworks offering. Halle’s command of interdisciplinary bodywork is unparalleled. She is a second-generation master teacher who studied under the two greatest protégées of Joseph Pilates himself, Kathy Grant and Romana Kryzanowska.

A noted teacher’s teacher and a passionate movement educator, Halle revels in her ability to share her advanced neuromuscular and biomechanical knowledge with other somatic educators (physical therapists, yoga teachers, Pilates teachers).  She teaches her students nuanced, intuitive methods to integrate these practices into their current educational programs. Halle has held certification courses for Balanced Body since 2006 and has presented at the PMA Conference and Mind-Body Expo.
