Clients learn differently. Verbal Cues gives the client information on how to perform a movement. Since we are teaching movement, cueing clients through touch lets them experience the movement and support the body on many different levels: bone, muscle, tissue, fascia, and joints…

In this workshop we will improve our skills of touch to better absorb information on how the client is working. We also want our touch cues to give your clients a clear message.  With new awareness of how we communicate through the nonverbal, this will support a deeper level in your client’s movement.

The focus will also show you how to open the joints and release muscles of the ankle, leg, hip and shoulder. These releases will lead our clients to experience a new physicality.

Dancers for years have been using Pilates to help improve their dancing and balance strength and flexibility. Emphasis will be the primary focus to assist in strengthening and lengthening areas commonly injured in the dance community.

Core strengthening of the abdominals and opposing back muscles will be part of each class, as one’s body awareness and safety throughout! Strengthening legs and arms is equally important in coordination with the core. Proper alignment will also be taught to understand proper concepts of turnout, use of legs and core. 3 person minimum to run workshop.
