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.
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.
First off, I hope everyone is well and taking care of yourself! These are odd times for sure and while I miss seeing you, I'm enjoying our remote connections with friends from all over the globe. Please, stay connected.
GREAT NEWS! It's easy to take a class or workshop now with registration directly from my website. The studio is set up with a great sound system, camera and lighting. During class I have you projected onto a large screen so I can see you in action and give you personal feedback. I do a combination of watching and demonstrating (as needed) but really want you to feel connected and know that I'm paying attention to you.
I miss seeing everyone in person and yet I am grateful to visit with everyone everywhere around the globe. Please do check into class either by drop in or regularly. The schedule will shift as the autumn moves in so keep in touch.
I get asked fairly often - What is Pilates? What's the difference between Pilates and fitness? To a total newbie, describing Pilates by comparing it to something that's familiar, like fitness, seems like the best tack. I made this video as a resource to help describe the differences between Pilates and fitness in succinct terms.
Sunni Almond has an interesting story to tell about how she got started in Pilates and the unique path that she has taken with the work. Hear how she integrates Pilates Avatar into her home studio and why she’s excited to share it with her customers.
