Workshop Descriptions

3 Chairs + 3 Barrels = 2-way Stretch

How do the 3 Pilates Chairs (High Chair, Wunda Chair and Arm Chair) and the Barrels (Small Barrel, Spine Corrector and Ladder Barrel) work to progress you or your clients in their Pilates workout?
In this 3-hour workshop we’ll use the Chairs and Barrels to refine the 2-way Stretch and reveal the connections to the upper and lower body. We’ll take a look at how the Chairs and Barrels function within the Pilates Meth-od, the challenges they create and the connections they can facilitate. All levels of students can benefit from the exercises on these six apparatus.

The Teaser: The Truth will Prevail

The Teaser is infamous. It’s got a reputation and the word on the street is not good. We’ll comb through the Pilates system in this workshop and discover clues and components to find success in the Teaser. Where in the fundamental exercises do we begin to work on key elements of the Teaser? What are some common pit-falls? What skills of body shape and dynamic opposition do we need to cultivate? Join us for a 3-hour work-shop as we strategize how to better our Teaser by working on it all around the Pilates studio. You may even begin to enjoy it.
