The Lost Treasures – Revisited Part Two

Save these dates! We will be offering Part Two of our Lost Treasures Revisited. In these workshops, we will be looking at the archival Intermediate/Advanced exercises on the Mat, Cadillac, Chair, and Reformer. Join us either LIVE or via ZOOM. Don’t miss this amazing series of workshops! The material in these workshops are taken wholly from archival film footage (which we will show) and photography of Joseph Pilates teaching in the early 1940s. It includes powerful archival variations of Mat, Chair and Reformer exercises, as well as over “new” Cadillac exercises that have disappeared from today’s standard repertoire. We have been teaching these exercises for over 15 years now and have come to truly and deeply appreciate and recognize the exceptional power and value of this material. You will leave understanding the Pilates method on an entirely new level that will change your teaching forever. Join us for 3 days of moving and learning in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

The event is finished.

These Cadillac exercises from the 1940's video have simple, yet powerful choreography that is very user-friendly.

9:00AM - 12:00PM
Archival Chair with Kaile Ziemba 02-06
In this workshop we will explore the Wunda Chair as Joseph Pilates describes it. "It's the only chair purposefully designed to Pleasantly Correct your present Deplorable Physical Condition. It's the Silent Artist-Sculptor-Moulding, Forming and Correcting every Part of the Human Body-as you will it". We will learn some archival variations of the chair exercises as well as alternative transitions. Come prepared to move in this high energy workshop!
1:00PM - 4:00PM
Archival Reformer with Amy Taylor Alpers 02-06
In Part Two, we will explore in depth the intermediate/advanced classical Pilates Reformer exercises as they were originally taught. The subtle alterations and variations in form and choreography provide valuable “new” insights into the purpose and goal of the exercises. From Footwork to Russian Squats, slight tweaks to the designs of many of the extant exercises powerfully reveal and clarify his intention, and thereby, help the practitioner better focus on the intended objective. Rhythm and dynamic emphasis are accentuated, and consequently, muscle power is heightened. In addition to the variations on exercises with which we are already somewhat familiar, several entirely “new” archival exercises – ones we had never seen before – will be learned. All the material in this workshop is user-friendly, so it can be given to clients, and, most important, it’s fun and exciting to try them all on. Don’t miss this great opportunity to expand your knowledge and understand your history.
