Bio-Mechanics:  How Our Bodies Really Work and How to Cue That Reality – 6hrs
6PMA CECs

While your physical intuition is an important asset in teaching Pilates, intuition is not enough. To sincerely take care of your clients, you must know the truth of how the body works.  Cue the reality, not the myths or mistakes. Being a confident teacher depends on it…demands it.  We’ll work to understand the bio-mechanics surrounding the pelvis, spine, shoulder girdle and how to apply this information to your teaching.  Knowing and understanding is the only way.

WORKSHOPS

 

Great Groups and Sensational Semi’s – 3 hours

3PMA CECs

Group classes and Semi-Privates are a reality in modern day Pilates, but were you ever really trained on how to make them successful? Shari will teach you the guidelines, tools and techniques to easily teach flowing, fun and fantastic Groups and Semi-Privates Sessions on all Apparatus. Learn to mix up what you are teaching to add variety, and also how to work with multiple levels of clients at one time so they can grow individually. Be ready to learn and practice these skills in this dynamic workshop.

The Shoulder Girdle – 3 hours

3PMA CECs

The Shoulder Girdle is a complex system. When I first started teaching, all I knew was “pull your wings down” and “crack a walnut”. The more I study biomechanics, the more I know there is very little down and no cracking. It’s a delicate balance of bone, muscles, ligaments and tendons… and constant reassessing. Dynamic stability is what we are looking for. Let’s spend time studying where we’re going with the shoulder girdle and how to get there in Pilates. We’ll take time with the anatomy and biomechanics, Pilates exercises, common aliments and all of your questions. Take a moment to review what you already know before the workshop… then we can grow from there.

Joseph Pilates. Retrospective and Perspective – 1 hour

This is one of the most important workshops of the weekend.

1PMA CEC

If you call yourself a Pilates teacher then it is essential you know and can talk about Mr. Pilates. The more you know about Pilates the man  where he came from, and what he was looking to achieve, the more inspired you will be, and can inspire your clients!

Teaching the Tower Classes  – 2 hours

2PMA CECs

“Use what you’ve learned in Sat.’s Great Groups and Serious Semis” to deepen the hands-on skills and creative projects for Sundays Teaching Tower Class”. In your Tower classes, there are people of all levels, many who have never seen or been on the Tower in your class and some who are pretty advanced, as well. How do you create a class that takes care of them all? Let’s take the time to learn how to create a really safe, strong and challenging classes on the Tower. The are special guidelines and progressions you can follow and great ways to make a fantastic class for everyone… including you as a teacher! Shake up your classes, learn new and exciting variations and progressions to challenge both physically and mentally clients of all levels.

Flow, Rhythm and Oppostion – Making the session a workout at any level – 4 hours

4PMA CECs

This is the ‘giant’ in workshop learning. Flow is much more than moving quickly through a list of exercises. Let’s figure out what flow is and how to create it within each move, reception and exercise. Flow has a lot to do with how you think of the workout and how you use your voice to set rhythms, give accents and emphasize certain points of each exercise. It will change your teaching for the better. Opposition; the key to stability. Every exercise must continually lengthen and deepen…..nothing is held tightly or compressed, learn how to cue opposition into the Pilates work out and into your clients bodies.

Wonderful Wunda Chair – 3 hrs
3PMA CECs

The Wunda Chair is often misunderstood and feared.  With the new influx of wunda chair classes, truly understanding the chair, its history, exercises and uses is even more important than ever.  It’s one of the most versatile and exciting pieces of apparatus in the studio.  In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use it as part of or as a complete session always keeping movement flowing with purpose.

Creative Spine Corrector – 3hrs
3PMA CECs

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to transform your Spine Corrector into one of the most useful piece of apparatus in your studio!  You will learn how to do and teach an entire flowing workout/session on the Spine Corrector as well as how to use just a handful of exercises to enhance a full workout.  With over 40 exercises, there’s a lot to work on and discover.  You will also learn how to organize the exercises, how to position the clients on the apparatus and where to be to spot and cue the exercises as the teacher.  It’s surprising how special and important you’ll find Spine Corrector.
