Pilates Equipment Class for Young Dancers

postcardI am excited to announce the beginning of a new series for dancers.  This one is for young dancers.

Pilates Equipment Class for Young Dancers

With Joy Karley Thursdays noon. 1/23-27

6 week workshop $120

Single class $31

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.

New Online Posterior Lateral Hip Workshop with Lesley Powell

New Online Posterior Lateral Hip Workshop

I have had many requests by teachers to do some videos about my teaching.  My dream has come true with FusionFitness.  We created a wonderful video on the Posterior Lateral hip.  

The Posterior Lateral hip is very important for posture and can heavily influence how your clients stand, their alignment, and ease of motion.  Training in this area can also drastically improve how your client uses their core while promoting better standing and gait, and aiding in injury prevention.  

You’ll learn how to assess your client’s posture and to understand the influence of the posterior leg and hip muscles.  From there you’ll learn; 
• the anatomy of the posterior lateral hips and how they are important for good alignment of the legs and spine
• how to build better better foundations of the gluteals, hamstrings, rotators and feet, 
• how a clients neurological pattern can prevent good function of the legs and posture, 
• the coordination of posterior lateral hip muscles in closed chain exercises, how it influences standing and walking, 
•and how to train these muscles using the Pilates equipment.   
Over 35 different concepts, techniques, and exercises are covered and you’ll walk away with valuable skills to add to your instructor’s tool kit.
