“The Artful Eye”, advanced teaching skills.  Presented by Constance Holder
One of the most essential skills of any teacher is the ability to “see” a student or client.  Sessions should develop into the most appropriate structure for an individual on any given day and be specifically designed to offer optimum results in a short period of time.  It is critical to see beyond the surface, understand how the body works and offer guidance through safe and effective exercises.

“Creative Teaching”, enhancing group class teaching, Presented by Bonnie Sessions
A teacher of movement (Pilates, weight training, yoga, etc.…) can be demanding and draining physically and emotionally.  If we are not careful as our teaching career advances overtime can lead to burn out, poor quality of teaching and eventually loss of valuable business.  Our passion enables us to help others but our love of what we do must also protect us from the challenges that accompany this passion.   Over the 25 plus years of teaching I have been able to develop a number of successful strategies to maintain a fulfilling and successful Pilates teaching career.

“Pilates for Athletes using the Wunda Chair & Foam Roller”, Presenter, Sheri Long
Athletes represent a very specific population and as such special considerations should be applied to serving their needs.  This workshop will guide the instructor through the unique and valuable applications available for the athlete directly related to the Pilates method.  Challenging muscle groups with precision of movement in strength, flexibility and endurance, will provide the necessary tools to structure demanding, yet well rounded sessions, for the professional (or weekend) athlete in your studio.

“Unwinding Scoliosis with Pilates” Presented by Karen Clippinger
Research suggests that addressing the rotational component of scoliosis is vital for improving scoliosis. After discussing the basic anatomical and biomechanical changes of the spine associated with scoliosis, this session will focus on utilizing counter rotation and lateral flexion combined with distraction of the spine to attempt to lessen the asymmetries associated with scoliosis. These principles will be applied progressively from standing posture to strengthening exercises to functional movement. Participants will participate in novel exercises utilizing elastic bands and Pilates apparatus, as well as learn cueing for classical exercises that can be utilized to maximize benefits for your clients.

    9am – 4pm
    $200 before October 1
    $250 after October 1

“Shoulder Mechanics” Presented by Meredith Rogers
This workshop will focus on the correct mechanics of the shoulder girdle - particularly relating to the Pilates repertoire. Immaculate control and sequencing of movement are essential in this method. Higher-level Pilates challenges, coupled with everyday activities demanding shoulder involvement, can easily create negative movement patterns and compensations. Poor shoulder stability, mobility and correct patterning of movement are certainly the most frequently encountered dysfunctions amongst clients. This subject is one that needs to be addressed as its implications are far reaching.

    9am – 4pm
    $200 before November 10
    $250 after November 10
