POOR FEET/Return them to Life with Rachel Segel
Imagine a world where feet could gloriously resume their 5,000,000,000-year-old role of trusted, valuable propellers, balancers, trampoline-like weight bearers and shock absorbers. Imagine a world where the rest of the body could return to doing what it is best at because of those valuable feet = happiness and peace!
This workshop explores our human feet through Pilates exercises and philosophy – how to build strong, resilient, ambassador – like partners that can fully direct our body with surety and finesse and can hold us in place to withstand the difficulties of life. We’ll use the Toe Corrector, the Foot Corrector, the Towel, as well as see how every Pilates exercise and piece of apparatus can be a foot exercise and in being so, becomes a full-body exercise.
The Knee Bone’s Connected to the Hip Bone with Amy Alpers
In this 3-hour workshop we will look at how the knee and hip are tied together, and both vulnerable to injury and chronic wear and tear – witness the vast number of replacements we see. Let’s remind our clients of the healthy, natural design of these joints and help them live a stronger, more powerful life.
Lets Get Your Back Into It! with Kelli Hutchins
In Pilates, we focus on the abdominals so much but forget about how important the back is to support good abdominal strength. In fact, learning how to utilize your back and check will automatically allow your abdominals to work more efficiently. In this 3-hour workshops we will explore how to use our chest and backs to give us the support we need to better find strength in our abdominals. Of course, breathing is a big part of it. We will look at a few different bodies on a few different apparatuses and explore how this benefits them for better uniform development and strength.
Shoulder Junction What’s Your Function with Kaile Ziemba
The Shoulder Joint is the most moveable joint in the human body, right? This creates a lot of mystery and confusion about how to move. Should we stabilize? Should we mobilize? Yes, to both and Pilates is always the answer! In this workshop we will learn easy to apply, movement patterns that automatically provide consistent, reliable organization to the upper body. We will explore the movement and strength connection of the shoulders, chest and upper back and their contribution to the health of our spine (particularly the neck). Imagine a world where you could embrace your loved ones, cartwheel, scale mountains and more without concern or hesitation.
