Description

The Pelvis: the Ilium and the The Sacrum

The pelvis is made up of 2 bones; the ilium and the sacrum. The way in which we organize and stabilize the pelvis can affect the entire body.  Poor mechanics of the pelvis can influence the entire body including the neck, shoulders, spine hip, knee and foot.

This workshop offers teachers a step-by-step understanding of the anatomy of the pelvis, pelvic floor and dynamic stability through Pilates exercises and functional movement such as gait.

Over her years of teaching, Lesley has received many questions from Pilates teachers asking how to teach the use of the pelvic floor. This workshop answers all of these questions by covering a myriad of imagery techniques and exercises ranging from the simple to the complex.

Please note that the work contained in this workshop should never be taught in one lesson and that the use of this information depends on the learning curve of your client.

Student Comments

Test

I enjoyed the quality of the information and especially the use of visual aids and the tactile cues for the client. I especially liked the tape on the front of the pelvis and the use of the sacrum model to show both proper movement patterns and improper movement patterns.

Slide 2

I always enjoy Lesley. She is so great. Wish I could be in New York to work with her personally.

Slide 3

The imagery has helped me with verbal cues for my clients to more correctly engage their abdominals.

Slide 4

Lesley's workshop was really informative and given at a very understandable level. I was skeptical about an online study but this was presented clearly and organized in a matter that was logical and applicable to clients and my own personal practice.

-Jennifer M

Slide 5

I enjoyed Lesley's slow methodical explanations. She made a point to talk in precise terms which went along with her visual and tactile cues. The pelvis is a complex part of our anatomy and Lesley helped de-mystify it.
