We know that Pilates is a movement method designed to work the whole body simultaneously and uniformly. However, Joseph Pilates also prescribes that if a part of the body is under-developed we should select exercises to specifically correct these “respective conditions”. In this workshop we will look at the specific muscles in the 21st century human body that might be underdeveloped and how Pilates can tone specific muscles and restore whole health to the body. The “optional” pieces of equipment offer the most specific and direct approach to targeting these weaknesses. We will explore exercises on the Cadillac, Low Chair and Spine Corrector and gain a deeper understanding of how these exercises better prepare our bodies for Mat, Reformer and more!
