13th of April 2024  MAT


Return to life - 34 ways to control gravity



Upright Pilates

..we end the day with a Mat Class

A Pilates practice usually begins on the Mat, and it ultimately leads back to the Mat. Joseph Pilates handpicked 34 original movements that—according to him—would establish and maintain good physical health. In this workshop, participants get to explore and question these familiar exercises, discover their purpose, the logic in the original order, as well as helpful transitions and variations to introduce these movements.

Pilates was designed to follow nature’s learning curve as it relates to the progression of movement: from lying to sitting to kneeling to standing, gradually lifting the body’s center of
gravity. Get on your feet in this workshop and learn the many unique standing exercises from the original repertoire, as well as progressions of familiar exercises to the upright position.

We will start the day with a class...

Assessment & Conditioning -

the basics of Pilates



Corrective exercise strategies

In the original method, there were no “beginner” exercises; instead, each exercise in and of itself contains a spectrum of possibilities to regress and progress, making each movement an important piece to revealing the habits, strengths, and weaknesses of the practicing body. During this workshop we look at fundamental exercises and the way to use them as effective tools for assessment AND body conditioning.

Joseph Pilates truly saw the body in its entirety when he developed his work—not one part was ignored, and so he invented various apparatus to offer assistance, resistance, and correction wherever it was needed. This workshop teaches participants about the hierarchy of movement patterns, apparatus, their relationship to one another and the moving body, and how to reintegrate smaller devices such as the Toe Corrector and Neck Stretcher into modern teaching.
