Description

See and experience how fine-tuning of perception leads to more efficient, easy and graceful movement. This course is an opportunity to deepen your mind-body connection with the author of The New Rules of Posture: How to Sit, Stand and Move in the Modern World, a ground-breaking work that re-defines posture as orienting activity rather than as body positioning.

Objectives

Through attention and exploration Mary guides you to experience your relationship with gravity as if for the first time. You’ll notice where your body is reluctant to yield its weight into the support of the ground. You then incorporate the yielding sensation into two specific body regions--the pelvic rami and the ankles—and notice improvements in posture and movement. You learn to distinguish between support and stabilization, and use the perceptual organization of posture and movement to refine performance and clarify instruction.

Concepts & Techniques

  • Perceptual organization of posture and movement
  • Experiential processes to heighten perception of gravity’s support
  • Channeling new sensations into targeted areas
  • Using mirror neurons to enhance body reading skill
  • Gravity’s role in breathing and in relaxation
  • Application of the perceptual approach to the Pilates experience

Props & Equipment Used

  • Mat
  • Reformer

Slide 2

I especially liked the application to activities in daily life. Just seeing Mary practice and her ability to pick up on small movements is something to aspire to.

Slide 3

Cues in this workshop helped me understand how the gravity and the weight of each part of the body don't have to be in "contrast".
