The World of Chairs

High Chair and Wunda Chair

Your Body’s Best Friends!

You didn’t know if you should invest in a High Chair, but you did…and you hardly use it. Or maybe you haven’t bought one and wonder if you ought to. It’s an amazing tool! You deserve to learn how to use it to it’s fullest for you and your clients – from Session 1 to Session 4001. Then there’s the Wunda Chair, The Home Reformer. So many exercises, it’s almost overwhelming to pick and choose…and you pick the same 3 or 4 over and over again. Let’s open the doors to the Wonderful World of Chairs! Let’s work to understand the purpose of each exercise on each chair and make it come alive for you and your clients!

Creative Spine Corrector

3 hours

Laying dusty in a hidden corner of your studio…there lays the Spine Corrector. Dust that baby off! It’s time to use this amazing piece! In this workshop, you’ll learn how to transform your Spine Corrector into one of the most useful piece of apparatus in your studio! You will learn how to do and teach an entire flowing workout/session on the Spine Corrector as well as how to use just a handful of exercises to enhance a full workout. With over 30 exercises, there’s a lot to work on and discover. You will also learn how to organize the exercises, how to position the clients on the apparatus and where to be to spot and cue Creative Spine Corrector.

A Fight For The Ages: Stability vs. Mobility!

3 hours

“There is a constant battle between Stability and Mobility in Pilates! I strongly disagree with those who say: just mobilize! Pilates is Contrology: the study, the art of control! So…it’s not just movement for movement’s sake! When we make strong choices of what is stable and what is mobile, exercises come alive! When we know how to stabilize and what to mobilize…then we’re much more effective in our cueing and our clients are getting so much more out of their Pilates workouts! Let’s dig in, play and discover!

Shoulder Girdle: A Delicate Balance

3 hours

The Shoulder Girdle is a complex system. When I first started teaching, all I knew was “pull your wings down” and “crack a walnut”. The more I study biomechanics, the more I know there’s no down and no cracking. It’s a delicate balance of bone, muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia…and constant reassessing. Dynamic Stability is what we’re looking for. Let’s spend time studying where we’re going with the shoulder girdle and how to get there in Pilates. We’ll take time with anatomy and biomechanics, Pilates exercises, common ailments and all of your questions. Take a moment to review what you already know before the workshop…then we can grow from there.
