Description

This comprehensive guide to rotation in the Pilates environment includes unique movement sequences for the Reformer, Chair, Trapeze Table, and Ladder Barrel. In some exercises Rotator Discs are used with each piece of equipment in order to create functional exercises that support activities of daily living. The Stability Sling is used in some Reformer exercises. Rotation of the pelvis and lumber spine, thoracic spine, and cervical spine is addressed along with rotation of the hips and shoulders. The workshop includes material appropriate for therapeutic applications, sports training, and dance technique. The exercises progress from non-weight bearing to partial weight bearing to full weight bearing, eventually standing on Rotator Discs. Some exercises are appropriate for clients who are preparing for hip replacement or knee replacement. Other exercises are appropriate for clients who have had hip replacement or knee replacement. The entire program has a goal of the improvement of gait. The workshop includes a teaching tutorial with focus on touch cues.
