Lesley Powell is moving to Studio 26- NYC

IMG_1824I am so excited of joining Studio 26 for teaching of my privates, classes and workshops.  

What I miss about Movements Afoot as my own studio, is the sharing and passion of teaching and understanding the body. I know many of the teachers at Studio 26. We have much in common in our pursuit of understanding the body.

Jared Kaplan is committed to creating a community for Pilates/movement teachers to keep fresh about our teaching. I am so excited to be joining an enviroment like this. This upcoming weekend Madeline Black returns for a book signing event plus workshops.

Doris and I are planning to do our Biotensegrity series in the fall.  I will have an Movement Lab: Embodied Anatomy series in June

Studio 26 is expanding as well.  Once construction is done, my classes will resume.  I am hoping to start April 5.  Stay tune for updates and links to be able to sign online.

2016 is already starting to be an exciting New Year!

Biotensegrity

Doris and I are actively developing how to bring the new concepts to your practice andteaching.  We have been in the studio exploring and developing the material for you. Biotensegrily is revolutionary how we understand the body: the living and moving body.
Doris and I have decided to postpone our Biotensegrity seriews until the fall.  Our goal is make the experience of Biotensegrity, a new physical connection to the body.
I was in Miami, Fl.  at The House of Movement  to teach workshops on Posterior Lateral Hip, Psoas, Fascial Release and Shoulder Revolution.  If you are ever in Miami,  this wonderful studio offers Pilates, Gyrontonics, Water Exercise and a unique vision of “functional fitness”.   Can’t wait to go back.
I was in Princeton Fitness and Wellness teaching Twisted Reformer, a Balanced Body course in February.  I return March 6 to teach Balanced Body’s Reformed Core
Major changes are happening for me in the next month.  New website, New Home for teaching. Stay tune!

Due to Storm: Hip Me w. Your Best Shot Workshop now 2/6

150409_kim_gibilisco_rutgers_whitneybrowne-168Hip Me With Your Best Shot          

with Kim Gibilisco MFA, MA, PMA-CPT  Saturday 2/6/2016 4-7 PM $150

Hip Me…  is designed to enhance the participants’ understanding of the various challenges encountered and viable solution options when working with clients with labral pathologies. To date, there are no bonafide guidelines for the pre and post-rehabilitation of hip scopes for labral pathologies. 

However, both Physical Therapists and Pilates teachers frequently encounter pre and post hip scope patients/clients. Successful outcomes incorporate identifying adequate ranges of motion with optimal joint congruency, alignment and efficient neuromuscular recruitment strategies in a pain-free environment. 

Utilizing Pilates mat and equipment, participants of this workshop will understand the rationale behind re-education strategies using the Pilates repertoire and apparatus.  The goal of the workshop is to offer new movement strategies and viable solutions for care and conditioning to an ever growing population.

Master equipment class: Anatomy Dances to the Core

The New Year brings an exciting Master Pilates Equipment class for Pilates teachers, intermediate/advanced movers and lovers of Pilates.  This class will explore new research about the body and applications to a Pilates Class.

With the exciting information coming from Biotensegrity, fascia and other movement modalities,  we have come to understand the core is more than abdominals.  Stability is a dynamic dance around the joints that is constantly changing.

Core is more than abdominals: It is three dimensional.
How you use your limbs can affect the quality and coordination of the core.  It is more than muscle; how does your fascia affect your body.

Biotensegrity

Science is having us look at the body differently.  Graham Scharr and Rudolph Laban both are fascinated by the numerous examples of geometric patterns and shapes in nature and its relationship to the body. New research into fascia is changing how we understand the foundations of support within our bodies.
