Spirals & Rotations
Sunday, January 17, 2021

As we age, rotation of the spine can become restricted, limiting our overall range
of motion, balance and proprioception.


In this Level 1, Online Mat based Instructor workshop & workout, we’ll integrate
accessible rotations and spirals (and learn the difference) into a Pilates workout.

We’ll consider how indirect movement patterning can help improve range of
motion, balance and spatial awareness that are all key for strong, optimal
movement. The final hour will take you through a workout that integrates some
key spirals and rotations that you can access for yourself and your clients.

Re-energize your Workout – Instructor Master Class
4 Weeks Series

Be even better at what you do by re-energizing your self practice and passing it on
to your clients. Start your week off on a positive, invigorated step as we review the
tools of progressive programming and the benefits of repetition over 4 workouts
created build energy, endurance and strength.

This online mat based Instructor Master Series is designed to inspire instructors
to stay committed to their own workouts they can provide their clients with the
best training possible.
Each class will begin with a 15 minutes movement sequence that we’ll use as a
building block to increase challenge and activate the neuromuscular system
throughout the 4 weeks. It’ll then progress into a 45 minutes workout that draws on
selected classical Pilates Mat & Reformer exercises. Each workout will be different
and yet interconnect with progression and focus.
This structured approach will provide us with a foundation where we can add new
movement, introduce functional patterning and bring awareness to how some of
the more advanced Pilates movements can be taught in an accessible and
progressive way.
There will be time at the end of each session to review and breakdown added
exercises and discuss program development in a group format.
If you’re looking for your own workout but also want to enhance your client
programming skills, join us.
