Anatomy Trains provides a comprehensible way for movement educators to observe the body more clearly. Throughout each workshop you be able to identify and trace one of the 6 fascial lines of Anatomy Trains. These tools will expand your postural assessment and provide more effective choices on how to help the student/client within the Pilates repertoire.
- March 21 The Lateral Line frames both sides of the entire body from mid-foot to the ear.
- April 25 The Spiral Line begins on each side of the skull and loops itself from back to front to the same hip as the skull. In the leg the line moves along the anterolateral thigh under the arch of the foot and back up.
- May 9 The Arm lines have four distinct myofascial directions.We will trace the muscle/fascial chain from the core to distal end of the arm lines
- June 27 The Functional Lines apply the arm ,torso and legs in the front and well as the back body. It is mostly used in contralateral movements of every day life and sports.
- TBA The Deep Front Line means the core of the entire body. Between front/back and side to side of the body. We will trace the muscle/fascial chain that goes from the foot through the adductors, psoas, diaphragm, throat and side of the skull.
Balanced Body’s The Twisted Reformer

The Twisted Reformer introduces rotational and unilateral moves as variations on traditional Pilates exercises. Rotation and unilateral exercises create extra challenges for core stability and are part of functional movement for daily living and athletic activities. Exercises include variations for beginning, intermediate and advanced levels.
Rotational and unilateral exercises generally require more core control and awareness than many Pilates exercises so make sure your clients are up for a challenge and paying attention. This is especially true in group classes so be careful how you set up and cue each exercise.
Shoulder Revolution – Using Pilates to create healthier Shoulders
In this workshop, we will start with Franklin Method: Liberate your Shoulders. Embodied anatomy will lead to healthier function. We will explore the bone rhythms of the shoulder girdle and how correct rhythms will lead to better physicality.
A great scapular-humeral rhythm will invite the correct phrasing of the arm and core muscles. When you get a client to better use her shoulder girdle, her arm strength, posture and connection to the core will improve. Learn how this rhythm works and how to help your clients improve theirs. Using Pilates repertory, this shoulder workshop will help you and your client to healthier connections of your shoulders, arms and entire body.
