Silver Tsunami Workshop – Addressing Different Types of Mature Bodies to Create Health with Kelli

The “Silver Tsunami” isn’t just coming, it is here now. As more and more of our clients sing “When I’m 64”, we teachers might feel a little nervous about how much Pilates to teach them and at what tempo, which exercises worry us as contra-indicated and are they really, should they take class or privates, when is a modification needed and is it? …..  new ideas and inspiration – yes!…. old wisdom and full-body health – YES!

This series of workshops devoted to exploring and celebrating Age-ing and Pilates will truly inspire you to continue advancing your clients’ health and their capabilities, not only maintaining. We will see 70-year-olds who use the most advanced workouts to continue to transform. We will see 60-year-olds who have had multiple replacements and what modifications to their workouts help them to continually transform. There will be “case studies” to show how a mature client can negotiate the changes in their body while increasing the value of it. We’ll address the topic of determining what is healthy for a senior’s vertebrae, heart, lungs and how to improve their conditions.

Re-new your dedication to – and inspiration about – Pilates and the Baby Boomers!

 

 

October 16th 9-11AM MDT on ZOOM with Kelli

In this workshop, we will take a look at two unique clients, each of whom struggles with standard issues that occur as we age. One, who is 75, has had double knee replacement and has also discovered, later in her life, that she has scoliosis. Using pads and other props, we will strengthen the weak and tight areas caused from having knee replacements and scoliosis. The other client, 80 had polio as a child and lost the use of one of her arms. We will explore how one can still teach them Pilates from a full body perspective using props and pads to work to get the most out of their movement in a lesson. These “case studies” will show how a mature client can negotiate the changes in his/her body while increasing strength and flexibility.
