Different manufacturers have somewhat differing terminology. At the time I wrote the manual, I was only familiar with the Peak line of equipment. I was taught to refer to those vertical metal pegs behind the shoulder blocks as "hocks." For some exercises, they are used for handles for the hands (Corkscrew and Mermaid, for instance), and as a place to hang the handles of the straps. So, yes, for the footwork, the straps are "hooked" on the hocks.

I think your manual looks really great. I haven't had enough time to read the entire thing, but I especially like how you have broken down the categories into "essential ingredients, tips, pitfalls and transitions." So often transitions are overlooked, but I think they are an important part of Pilates so thanks for including them. I have been teaching for about 5 years and am a Second Generation teacher. I let you know if I find any typos and thanks for putting this manual out - I wish you a lot of success with it. Also, I've never heard the term "hocks" either - but I have heard "pegs" or "posts".

Congratulations for your big project!
If you ever need someone to translate it into Spanish, do let me know.
I have had the opportunity to translate some of Rael's or Ellie Hermanns books.
Would love to translate yours as well :-))
All best luck for intrepid Pilates enthusiasts!!
