  • Pencils Down Bottom's Up (1 hr):

A STRONG work out - feel the work to understand the work - no nonsense - no notes. 

  • The Red Thread of the Mat (2 hr):

How to correctly add Mat exercise according to clients needs & abilities. This workshop looks at the connections between the Mat exercises in the classical Pilates Method. How do they build in the order of the Mat? How do we use The Red Thread® of spinal function to create a unique workout for the individual student? The Mat is the Heart & Soul of the Classical Pilates Method…The Red Thread® can help deepen your understanding and application of this method.

  • The Red Thread of the Reformer (1 hr):

How to correctly add Reformer exercise according to client’s needs and abilities. How to use the method to strengthen what is weak and challenge what is strong.

  • Fix Your Feet (1 hr):

Foot Rolling, Marbles, Towels, and Foot Corrector, Toe Corrector and more. Look and improve alignment from the bottom up!

  • The Body Before You (2hr):

Create a work out for the individual through analyzing their work, movement and muscle balance. Use "The Red Thread®" to create a workout to strengthen what is weak and challenge what is strong. Each exercise was created to work the body in a specific way. The order was created to build on what is worked. Learn to look at the Body Before You and implement the correct body position to work what is intended to work in each exercise. In this workshop we compare different bodies, how to find the correct position so they gain maximum benefits and work what should be worked.

  • Injuries and Application (2hr):

Pilates is a list of exercise that cleans the body from the inside out. When an exercise is removed from the Mat or Reformer it must be executed safely on the auxiliary apparatus to fulfill the needs of the Method. We will look at a few exercises and find how to apply the method within the limits and constraints presented.

  • The Baby Chair (2hr):

No one leaves Baby in the Corner! Learn the “Lift” of Pilates and how amazing this little Baby can be! For years Baby sat in the corner- “It’s for old ladies and delicate dancers” we were told. So for years Baby to the side and out of the light. This workshop will change your mind about the Arm/Baby Chair! It contains exercises that challenge the strongest of strong. The Arm/Baby Chair teaches us the missing component in the Pilates of today. It teaches us how to lift and engage our Powerhouse in the correct manner. You will learn to move with length in two directions from a strong center. The Arm/Baby Chair connects the front body to the back body and then both more deeply into the Powerhouse. Unique to this workshop, you will not only learn the how of each exercise, but the why, when and what. Why would I choose the Baby Chair instead of the Cadillac? When would I add a spot, bar or Magic Circle, What is the purpose of this exercise and how does it connect to the work of Pilates? Once again, The Red Thread® is woven and the connection is understood between the Mat and Reformer to increase a greater understanding of Pilates as a Method.
