Description

Madeline Black explores how we can help our clients (and ourselves) to sense the ground, gravity, and alignment through the use of foam pads strategically placed for tactile feedback. The sensation of the foam pads can help students feel the weight of their bodies against gravity and experience subtle bone movements. The use of the pads provides a whole new sense of proprioception that allows students to fully embody the Pilates mat work. In this online Pilates workshop, Madeline leads you through introductory movements to feel the ground and gravity, then moves into the classical mat repertoire. Watch her work with two different clients to see how the foam pads can be used for different bodies and hear from the participants as to how the pads allow them to experience familiar movements in new ways.
