Wanna get certified to be a POP Pilates Instructor?
It was 2 years ago when I had the idea for this music video. I asked myself: How could I express to you how POP Pilates makes me feel – the strength, the beauty, and the grace that it empowers me with everyday? How could I show you the journey that sculpted POP Pilates into the force that it is today? From one girl filming a YouTube video in her living room to now a POP ARMY of instructors all over the world…
This music video to Sam Tsui's and Casey's Breves' song "Perfect Storm" is a dreamscape of the POP Pilates evolution. I am so thankful for the emotional music in this video because without it, I do not think I would have been able to truly express my feelings about breaking boundaries and smashing barriers.
It was over a casual dinner with Sam and Casey that I asked if they knew anyone who could help me produce a song like this. To my total shock and surprise, Sam and Casey offered to write it, sing it and produce it! I was major fangirling and could not believe it…until a few days later, I got an email from Sam with "Perfect Storm" attached. I almost cried when I heard it. It was perfect.
Nearly 2 years later…I finally found the time to give this large production the time, energy and love that it needed. I am SO GRATEFUL for every beautiful soul that joined me in making this video a reality.
