Description

Join Madeline Black for this online Pilates workshop to explore the rib cage and surrounding tissues and their effect on posture, movement and function.The lower region of the thorax will be explored with an eye toward movement, breath, and functional recruitment of the myofascial core. Madeline will lecture on the effect of the thorax on the upper body, from arms to head; the lower body, from pelvis to legs; and, of course, the powerful relationship to the core. Madeline will include a focus on diaphragmatic, psoas and intercostals work for improving ribcage structure and function. Watch Madeline work with a first time Pilates client who is discovering her core connections.
