Balanced Body’s The Twisted Reformer

with Lesley Powell Sunday April 26  2015 3-6 PM
Register with Balanced Body  www.pilates.com $150

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

with Lesley Powell  June 28,, 2015  2-6 PMA 4 cec $150Top of the Shoulder

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.

Fascia and Anatomy trains – new research and upcoming workshops in 2015

dorisDoris Pasteleur Hall and I traveled to California to study with Marie Jose Blom’s workshop on fascia. Marie Jose had just attended an exciting conference on fascia in Germany this fall. New research is coming out that will change how we understand how the body organizes to move. We are learning that fascia has its own nervous system that helps us to function.

Marie Jose Blom’s  and Doris’ workshop, Anatomy Trains has given my own body new flexibility and connections. Applying these new concepts in my teaching has brought amazing results.

Doris will continue her series on Anatomy Trains in 2015.IMG_1128
