The Artful Eye “Advanced Teaching Skills” By Constance Holder was a true glimpse into the skillful art form that is teaching pilates. Constance is as great as it gets when it comes to looking at a client and knowing where to go with a session. She emphasizes goal driven movement. It’s like meeting a body psychic. She reads posture, strength, and areas of concern and then designs a workout tailored to meet those needs and challenges you to exceed your own personal expectations. It was an honor to learn from a master and someone who deeply cares about her practice and profession. It was worth very minute and penny as a student in BASI training.I would also recommend any of the upcoming lectures for furthering your pilates profession. With deep respect and gratitude,

Thank you arranging a fabulous weekend , wonderful to have the opportunity to attend events with presenters who have so much experience and knowledge. Loved the location and the number of participants ( hate large class sizes). Lovely atmosphere of sharing and supporting, Constance was amazing as always! So looking forward to joining you again.

A revolutionary device, the OOV is ergonomically designed to complement the 3 curves of the spine and mimic natural movement. Developed by Australian Osteopath and Neuroscientist Daniel Vladeta who saw a need for a self-correcting device that would embed motor learning. The OOV is an unstable, proprioceptive, bio-feedback tool, that re-patterns and enhances efficient movement.

The OOV Courses explore how using a device like the OOV can facilitate Functional Movement and create stability through improving mobility, focusing on exercises and training methods that continue to evolve with the latest research and our understanding of the body.

Incorporating traditional Pilates exercises applied to the OOV and Balance Training, the course teaches you to Assess Correctly, identify where Instability and Restriction exist in the Body, and how to develop Strategies to Promote Improved Motor Control, Strength, Endurance, Proper Alignment and Increase Dynamic Stability through the 3D Activation of Myofascial Slings.

The OOV is an experience and will change your daily practice and view of Functional Alignment.
