Description

In this online Pialtes workshop you will learn how to successfully train your clients to perform side bend mermaid on the mat and snake on the reformer. During this workshop, Nikki Chrysostomou will help you to understand how to train the upper body for more advanced exercises.

Nikki starts by reviewing the anatomy of the shoulder girdle then introduces basic principles for training the upper body. Easy to follow demonstrations, progressions and teaching cues of exercises taught on a client from the basic level to our final goal of performing side bend mermaid and snake.
