Refine the Reformer (6 hrs)

It’s all about the details!  Re-visit the intermediate reformer including multiple variations for different body types and issues, and transitions. Experience the importance of teaching with a minimum movement and how to adapt the exercises and teach with a balance of precision with flow. We’ll cover variations you may not have seen for everyone from beginners to advanced plus special populations including backs, hips, knees, shoulders, necks, and more…all blended into the workshop.  Come prepared to move!

Spine Corrector Surprises (2 hrs.)

We think of the Spine Corrector as the apparatus of choice for individual needs exercises to open up the chest, shoulders, and hips. Yet there is so much more we can do on this home friendly, space efficient apparatus!  We will discover many other possibilities for Spine Corrector usage that are practical and really work in both a private and semi- private setting to give you more tools and ideas that are easy to incorporate and yield powerful results.

Don’t Leave Baby in the Corner (2 hrs)

Often overlooked and what a shame!  Experience the possibilities of the Baby Chair, not just for delicate necks but as an apparatus used to challenge the powerhouse, lift and dynamics.  Learn how to add it to your repertoire and what you can give your clients to help them build to the same exercises on other apparatus. 

Small Equipment Yielding Big Results (2hrs)

The smaller apparatus can really pack a punch.  Help fix the “little issues” your clients have by integrating the foot corrector, toe corrector, pedipole, breathasizer, neck stretcher, and arm chair.  The first step is to recognize the weak point that you see showing up in the main workout.  Next, we are ready to make exercise choices on these other apparatus to help “fix” the issue.  Develop your critical thinking skills to determine a successful course of action so your clients progress and feel stronger in their daily life activities.  Regardless of age or fitness level, there is a challenge we can find in the Pilates System for everyone.

Progressing Your Client (2hrs)

Age Strong (2hrs)

What’s right for us in our 20’s and 30’s really shifts as we enter our 60’s, 70’s and beyond.  Pilates is the anti-aging medicine of the future.  Learn what aging bodies and minds can gain from Pilates and dispel some of the myths of aging that remain an active part of the youth culture. On a practical note, you’ll see some exercise modifications and techniques that you’ll find very useful.
