- Archival Chair with Kaile Ziemba
- 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
- 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.
