What is Uniform Development and How do we Achieve it?
Joseph Pilates was very clear when he described the intent of his method. “Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body …” (Return to Life) “We must devote ourselves … to the uniform development of our bodies as a whole …” he states again definitively. He refers to this concept over and over in his book. Have you ever truly thought about what he actually meant when he said this? What does uniform development mean to you? To your Pilates peers? To your clients? The path and the outcome to uniform development may not be the same for each of us. Uniform development, or lack of it, has an effect on whole body health. When you teach, are you focused on this outcome? How does the Pilates method achieve whole body organization? What does “uniform development of our bodies as a who include?
We will explore this concept, and discuss these questions, in our Winter Workshop

The Effects of an Imbalanced Pelvis
In this workshop we will explore structural and muscular imbalances in the pelvis and
how these affect whole body movement. Many clients have these imbalances even if
they don’t have scoliosis. Most clients favor one side of the pelvis which effects the
opposite side and causes deeper imbalances from the feet up through the spine. We
will explore how to better flex, extend, twist, and side-bend with these imbalances in
mind. The Chair is a great way to address these imbalances. We will explore some
exercises on other apparatus as well.
