MOVE Right!  Rhythms Are Game Changers!  (6 NPCP CEC’s live attendance only)

November 19, 2020

As the holidays and New Year approach, it's a good time to think about where you are and how you want to grow.  Do you have certain exercises that elude you?  Maybe the Teaser?  The Overhead?  The Longspine Massage? Often it's the timing of the exercise which os off.  One of the lost skills that I see with the many teachers and students I work with is the art of the exercise rhythms.  This workshop was developed as a solution to improve the understanding and execution of the exercises so your body "gets it".  Right Rhythms Are Game Changers meets for 3 weeks, 2 hours each week.  Here's the details:

Meets 3x  January 5, 12,and 19, 2021   12:00-2:00 PM EDT.   6 NPCP Cec's (live only). Recorded Workshop available without CEC's

Elevate your personal practice and your teaching by honing the skills of moving with flow, musicality, timing + rhythm. Each exercise has it’s own unique rhythm that unlocks the greater potential of the exercise. First you get it in your body, then you learn to coach your clients to move that way too. Here’s where the art of teaching comes alive so be prepared to move, teach, and receive expert tips from Clare. We will start with the mat and reformer then move onto the rest of the apparatus as questions arise. As our wonderful Master Teacher Bob Leikens used to say, “rhythm saves” — and it’s true but sadly the rhythms are becoming a missing piece of the work for the next generation of teachers. 

Objectives:
Distinguish the key differences between rhythm, tempo, and timing.
Recognize the correct rhythms in the Mat and Intermediate reformer exercises
Identify when the rhythm is off.
Demonstrate how to use verbal cues and touch to correct the rhythm of an exercise.
Describe 3 key factors that identify when the exercise rhythm, timing, and tempo are working.
