Description

Join Wendy in this pioneering online Pilates workshop, where we “shift” the conversation of how we perceive ourselves and our clients… from a Biomechanical “body as machine” that is either “right or wrong”…. to a Biointelligent “body as a living process”, growing and evolving ourselves in an “Embodied Pilates Matwork and MORE Flow”

Discover “Core Concepts” of embodied movement, as Wendy and Jennifer explore how partnering with gravity and spatial orientation shifts us from the “study of anatomy” to a direct experience of our body’s living architecture
Enjoy moving with Jennifer as she is coached by Wendy, using “Embodied Touch” cues that “deepen” your awareness of your movement, rather than “tell you how to do it right”

Explore an innovative approach to the Pilates Matwork, and then see how that builds with flow to more advanced exercises that even surprise Jennifer with their EASE!

Objectives

  • Discovering that when we “change the conversation of where we are coming from” in our approach from Biomechanical to Biointelligent within our personal practice and teaching, we change our nervous system’s experience from tension to ease, and shift from the “form” of an exercise being more important than our direct experience of “being in the form”
  • Discovering how “Core Control” is like driving your car with the parking brake on….whereas “Core Coordination” is an updated whole body awareness and embodied engagement, as Joseph Pilates intended in his visionary holistic treatise “Return to Life”
  • Discovering how to come home to being more grounded and spacious in your body, based on your direct experience of your “embryonic” self-regulating, self-healing, adaptive, intuitive nature
    Witnessing a client bringing the “Core Concepts” to life with Wendy’s coaching guidance


Concepts & Techniques

  • Discovering your Relationship with Gravity and Spatial Orientation…”Waterfall” Down the Back (DTB) and ”Internal Lift” Up the Front (UTF)
  • Cultivating Your Natural Powerhouse (NP)…your natural connection from pelvic floor to palate… a metabolic fascial support with the elastic recoil breath that we call “shoulder blades to internal belly” suspenders (SBIB)
  • Discovering your body’s “Biotensegrity”… how the portals of your hands and feet “root THROUGH your girdles” to your “breathing spine” (head to tail)
  • Exploring… Peripheral Vision, Cobra Spine and Weight Shift
