The Big Picture of Pilates

Blue Sage Pilates is excited to welcome Amy Taylor Alpers, co-owner and founder of The Pilates Center , Kelli Burkhalter Hutchins, Director of Education at The Pilates Center, and Kaile Larson Ziemba, Licensed Teacher Trainer at The Pilates Center, for a weekend of learning how the Pilates Method connects, progresses and guides us as teachers and as
students.
Prioritizing the Principles of Pilates – with Kaile Ziemba
In this workshop, Kaile will explore the Principles of Pilates and the distinction of not teaching to get the result vs. watch and make sure all 5 principles are occurring. Are you fixing and making everyone do it perfect? Or are we just doing Pilates?
Partnering for the Whole Body – with Kelli Burkhalter Hutchins
Do you feel confident to partner a client these days?  After the last few years, partnering may not feel natural. Do you need different approaches to partnering in person?  Do you need new tactics to partner someone through the zoom lens? Partnering can support the changes we look for in the Pilates Method. We can use our words, equipment, and our hands to assist our clients achieve uniform development.  In this workshop, we will look at how partnering can replace our words. We will practice how we can partner one area of the body while we speak to a different area of the body at the same time. We will explore ways that we can partner without physically being in the room with a client or ever having to use your hands. In this workshop, we will review different types of partnering: hands on/off, words and images, and different props available for clients to better achieve our ultimate goal of making the body healthier.
Practical Anatomy for Pilates Teachers – Seeing the Body Better – with Amy Alpers
Does anatomy make you nervous? Have you ever felt you’ll never understand it? Never know enough? That it’s just too big a subject? Never fear – this workshop is for you. We will be exploring human anatomy – musculo-skeletal anatomy – in a totally practical, user-friendly, movement-based, easy to understand way that will benefit every Pilates teacher who’s ever wished they knew more. And all for the ultimate purpose of being able to help your client towards uniform development, one of the key Pilates principles. Joseph Pilates was clear that Uniform Development was the goal of his work. Imbalanced, over-developed or under-developed muscles hinder the body’s ability to work well, leading to pain, dysfunction, reduced movement options, and ultimately injury. And certainly post injury or surgery, there can be quite dysfunctional muscle patterns that we teachers need to be able to help our clients with. In this workshop, we’ll look at images, palpate muscles and bones, explore textural qualities of muscle tissue, and feel and watch it all move live, in real time, right in front of our eyes. You will walk away with confidence and tons of newfound knowledge that is easily applicable and valuable in your everyday teaching.

Bradenton, Florida is a small, gulf coast community located on the west coast
of Florida. It sits on the south side of the Sunshine Skyway, a 45 minute
commute from the Tampa International Airport (TPA), or 20 minute commute
north of the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport (SRQ). To our west is our neighbor,
Anna Maria Island, where you will discover the most beautiful, white sandy
beaches you have ever seen. (admittedly, we may be a little biased)
