The Neuromyofascial System & the Pilates Environment

Day One Description:

Enrich your understanding and mastery of mat and reformer exercises from the repertoire of Joseph Hubertus Pilates by learning about the embryological development of the tongue, eyes, hands and feet that influences motor control. Embryology of the tongue connects it to the contractility of the front, back, lateral and spiral fields of the body. The six external eye muscles that control the eyeball in its socket are neurologically linked to suboccipital movement. Your finger maps take up one hundred times as much cortical real estate as your torso maps because there are far more touch receptors in your fingers compared to your torso. Integrate cues for the tongue, eyes, and hands to make your Pilates reformer practice and teaching accurate, effective, efficient, and fun!

Day Two Description:

This session explores the interplay of tension and compression in the body during Mat and Reformer sequences. Movement vocabulary includes sequences with the Mat, Reformer and Reformer with Tower. Biotensegrity references include publications by Graham Scarr, Jean-Claude Guimberteau, Danièle-Claude Martin and Jaap van der Wal.

Studies of the neuromyofascial system are preparing Pilates teachers to learn about the model of biotensegrity. Biotensegrity is a model of anatomical structure that profoundly informs how we move. Become acquainted with the principles of biotensegrity as presented in three recent books: Biotensegrity: The Structural Basis of Life, Graham Scarr (Handspring, 2014); Architecture of Human Living Fascia, Jean-Claude Guimberteau & Colin Armstrong (Handspring, 2015); Living Biotensegrity: Interplay of Tension and Compression in the Body, Daniele-Claude Martin (Kiener Munich, 2016). Apply the principles of biotensegrity to movement experiences on the Mat, Reformer or Reformer with Tower. Learn how your Pilates teaching can be informed and transformed by awareness of biotensegrity.
