Description

We often think of movement occurring through a series of levers, but what happens when we expand our awareness to looking at the structure of the body and how it moves as a series of shapes, in particular triangles?

In this workshop, Marcy Schafler breaks down movement through her concept of Body Geometry, demonstrating how many traditional Pilates exercises can be explored through this unique lens.

Using many creative visuals, Marcy illustrates how our eyes can be better trained to spot imbalances and/or cue more effectively. Dig deeper into exercises on the reformer, chair, and mat in this workshop designed to inform how you are looking at and communicating with clients.
