Description

This online Pilates workshop looks at all the things we’ve taken for granted as our Method has been passed down, added to, and evolved; all the “rules” we’ve set for ourselves when teaching that either don’t serve us or only serve a very small percentage of our student population for a very short period of time. In this workshop we’ll look at some the cues we ALWAYS use in an attempt to help students correct specific and gross movement patterns, that work for a little while, but ultimately hold them hostage to limited mobility and strength. As we deconstruct old beliefs and strategies we’ll dive into the biomechanics behind cues that are more anatomically sound and promote our students ever-growing potential. This workshop is all about learning how to discern, how to question, experiment, and stay open to what's in front of you.

Objectives

  • Explore and identify our most common Pilates “rules” and their original intent
  • Learn to apply sound biomechanic questioning to any cue to make it appropriate for the individual body in front of you
  • Learn alternative cues and tools to promote your student’s continued and progressive potential
  • Identify when a Pilates “rule” is appropriate and when it can be detrimental, hold students back, and foster poor biomechanics
