Our Mission

Body Wise Connection initially started as a not for profit entity that brought Pilates based exercise to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. This work gave rise the the Training to Heal workshop and now teacher training module allowing us to bring our unique program to Pilates studios and women around the world! Now, Body Wise Connection has expanded and offers a wide range of training and coaching options. Our mission is to bring the art of teaching and the science of movement education together allowing us to offer practitioners, clients and patients innovative, creative and life changing training techniques.

Training to Heal

Breast Cancer: From Diagnosis to the "New Normal"

This teacher training workshop walks instructors through the emotional and medical fallout that accompanies a breast cancer diagnosis. We explore and offer movement based options designed to assist clients, and those who love them, at each stage of the treatment process.

Cancer Sucks!

All of us have been effected by cancer and loss. While this program started after the loss of a dear friend to cancer, it is not about loss but about facing cancer, understanding the medical treatments and creating pathways toward hope, healing and restoration.

How Our Clients Experience BWC Training

"I felt fairly good after surgery, by my body was curled inward to protect my reconstructed chest. It was partly emotional and certainly physical. After working with Joy, in very little time, I felt my body open, straighten and strengthen. My spirits soared and my outlook improved as I felt my body respond and heal." -Mindy C

EPiC Mentorship

Don't Neglect Your Own Growth

When I found Pilates I felt it was perfect for my body, for my spirit and for my learning style. Training was exciting and every day was filled with "ah-ha" moments. Then I started a business. Happily clients came quickly and I was busy. As a result, clients would leave my studio feeling great, but I felt my creativity, my individual practice and my curiosity were compromised. I craved growth, movement and continued support.

Mentorship Smentorship!

I started this program as a way to help instructors grow in themselves intellectually and physically. To avoid the pitfalls of losing self in the craziness of living life, managing a business and creating a client base. I have no desire to mold you to my thought processes but rather to augment your voice and creativity through exploration and practice. Our time together will consist of brainstorming and moving with a focus on integration of movement science.

From Anywhere in the World

Using Skype or FaceTime, we will set up pre-arranged meeting time. Sessions last 1 1/2 hours. First half hour is about you, your thoughts, your questions and then a full hour of movement based on your needs. All you need is a place to move and a good internet connection to get started!

About Us

Joy Puleo

 

It is simple, I believe that movement changes lives and that education is the key to unlocking potential. This is a belief built on a movement practice that started in 1996 in the fitness world and expanded in 2000 to include the mindful movement modalities of Pilates and Gyrotonic. I was beyond fortunate that while finishing my Pilates training I was at the same time completing a Masters Degree in Applied Physiology from Columbia University. In addition to my degree I hold certifications from the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) and A.C.S.M / Exercise Physiologist. My courses are also eligible for ACE and NASM credits. 


In 2011 I founded Body Wise Connection, at the time, a not-for-profit designed to work with women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Body Wise Connections initial purpose was to remind women that even in midst of a diagnosis and treatment for cancer, the body can heal and strengthen. The BWC program is designed to restore physical self awareness and empowerment through gentle, rhythmic Pilates inspired movements. Though I no longer live in New York,  the BWC work has expanded to include a 2-Day Teacher Training course, instructor workshops and programs for all cancer patients regardless of the primary cancer diagnosis.


Currently I work with Balanced Body, the worlds largest Pilates manufacturer, developing educational curriculum and teaching Master Instructor training's in Pialtes, CoreAlign, Anatomy in 3 Dimensions, Bodhi and MOTR. As a lecturer and presenter I teach at studios, fitness centers and conferences around the world and I am a regular at most Pilates on Tour conferences.
