“Cueing for Your Pilates clients that gets more connection in mind and body”

This workshop shows how to teach and not use those cues we sometimes can get stuck on "scoop", "use those abs or your powerhouse" , "squeeze your glutes " and so on. Give your clients the power to figure out what is needed by the use of the springs an apparatus, an of course your cues.

I will be presenting this as a duo workshop with one of my WAP Grad Students Lora Rainey, visiting from Australia. Her workshop is on Slings and together it is 4 hours of knowledge, community and exploration.

Saturday Sept 28th 12-4pm at WAPilates in Houston, Texas

Workshop - Using the Mat to Assess and where to go from there

Joseph Pilates used the mat and Reformer to really assess what was going for the client. It is probably the thing I love most about Pilates, seeing what "pops" up with my client's session each week. This workshop shows how to see what “speaks or shouts” the loudest in terms of what is going on in the body in front of you. How do you take what you see in terms of the client's body and improve that pattern that you see? Learn how the exercises on the Mat can transfer in a different way to the other apparatus and help the connection and movement for your client. Then seeing how things changed for them back at the mat.

This 4-hour workshop is like all of my workshops with full participation and seeing what we see in our fellow participants and working together to see what options are best for what we see. Utilizing the full studio we see how the different apparatus can help connect or work the body to get the results we are looking for in terms of what pattern we are seeing with that client.

Seeing all the connections for the body with the different springs, orientations of gravity and movement is full of those lightbulb moments for us teachers and our clients! 4 CEC's available

Cost of workshop $250

Sunday July 28th at WAPilates 9am- 1pm

How to "modify" Pilates

How to modify Traditional Pilates for your client using Precautions and Contraindications.

Traditional Pilates provides a full body workout to all clients. That said, some clients have health conditions that as a Teacher you need to navigate around.  How do we as teachers do that yet, keep the client challenged and moving forward in their practice? How do we make sure in their everyday routine and movement they are safe and moving in a fully functional way for their body? There are some precautions and contraindications you need to be aware of and familiar with as a Teacher.

In this 4 hour workshop, participants will learn about these contraindications and learn how to break down or build the Traditional Pilates exercises to fit these clients needs and still challenge them and get them stronger. Learn and understand why you would omit certain exercises and how to assess for that client that day. Using all the apparatus as well as mat this workshop will give you the tools as well as give you the understanding to be confident and safe with clients. Includes manual and handouts.
