Description

Most movement teachers and Pilates instructors have at one time experienced burnout from long days of teaching and prioritizing our clients’ wellbeing over our own.

In this online Pilates workshop, Elizabeth Larkam shares science-based techniques for movement self-care. You will learn mat and equipment exercises that can help rejuvenate the body, restore energy, and set you up for a successful and sustainable teaching practice. These movement sequences are beneficial for instructors but can also be taught to clients who need some movement self-care at home.

Objectives

  • Learn restorative, rejuvenating movement sequences
  • Explore connections of the spine and pelvis to the upper and lower extremities
  • Understand how movement of the eyes and tongue can be used to inform the movement of the spine and neuromyofascial system
  • Reset the ability of the eyes and cervical spine to have movement options in an era of computer posture and “tech neck”
  • Stimulate proprioception of the feet


Concepts & Techniques

  • The neuromyofascial system functions as a bodywide organ of communication
  • Consideration of myofascial continuities (e.g. hands to thorax, feet to spine, etc.) in restorative movement
  • Using movement vignettes to increase a feeling of being grounded
  • The role of the eyes as the “advance team of the spine”
