 As any good teacher knows, the intent of the Pilates repertiore is not to get to the most advanced movement form quickly, but to truly embody every single phase of the exercise with ease, grace, and agility. This can only occur when time and effort has been placed in priming the body for movement, and focus is continually placed on the skills behind the work.Stones BalanceRelease work is the first step in helping your clients into successful core training within the Pilates repertoire. In this workshop you will learn how and why various tightness in the body directly lead to compensatory patterning that leaves the body weak, unstable, and vulnerable to injury. You will learn to help your clients break through their typical fitness routine and discover the depth of their strength via increased joint range of motion and   kinesthetic accuracy.   The simple and easy techniques that you will learn will aid your clients into a more homeostatic baseline and create the step by step process for true change in all of your client’s bodies, ranging from your most advanced athlete, to your therapeutic clientele.   This type of tiered approach is what takes your clients from simple shape making in the repertoire, to truly embodying every moment in the movement with complete command and precision.

Out of the Choreography

Contact Us for details.

Humans are so focused on the destination of a movement the we forget that movement is an unfolding and gradual process.  This results in movement that is linear, flat, rigid, and hinge-like.  This workshop will teach instructors how to break down exercises so that any client can experience the essence of the movement. Basic anatomy and biomechanics will be taught to focus on what we want to visualize. Release work and propping techniques will be emphasized so that the body and brain are set up for success. We will also discuss transition points and how to link skill sets.


Creative Cueing and Sequencing

Contact Us for details.

Painting a picture with words can illuminate and animate the senses, calling the body and mind to attention, and into focus. When you cue with vision, image, and theme, you start to tell the body a story—and it responds. Creative cueing incites a journey rather than a destination, and helps to bring about a multi- dimensional, multi-faceted awareness.


Body Braile™

The body can tell you a client’s history if you know how to read it.

By looking at bony alignment, facial integrity, and muscle chain of command, we can usher the body into balance and harmony.


The Pelvic Network

Contact Us for details.

The pelvis is a complex structure uniting bone, musculature, connective tissue, and the ever-important viscera. In this workshop, we will delve into understanding this network as a whole: its importance in the body, how it works, and how to cue it into action. This in- depth exploration will give you a full understanding of how the pelvis can work in concert with the whole body.


The Teacher/Client Conversation

Contact Us for details.

Bar none, the most important part of a session is the ongoing communication between client and teacher. Without a steady, balanced flow during the session, it is impossible for the client to progress or be supported on various levels. Creating a “call and response” will bring your work to a new level of effectiveness and fully assist your client in their movement education.
