Featured Workshop

Passing the Torch, Balanced Body mentoring program at California State University, Long Beach, CA

Karen Clippinger is honored to be one of a small group of Pilates instructors from around the world who has been selected by Balanced Body to participate in this mentoring program for experienced instructors. The Balanced Body Webpage for this program states, “Balanced Body has partnered with the “best of the best” Pilates instructors to offer a new and exciting program called Passing the Torch. This program was created to help shape the next generation of leaders in the Pilates community.”
In Karen Clippinger’s program, an in-depth presentation of anatomical and biomechanical principles that relate to the spine will be applied to practical parameters of teaching such as effective exercise selection, exercise cueing, and exercise modification for clients of different skill levels and with different limitations.  Lectures will be enriched by practical experiences involving muscle palpation, alignment evaluation, field tests, cueing, teaching fellow participants, and Pilates programming for sample client profiles. This course will be taught in an intimate setting (maximum of 8 participants) to facilitate individual feedback and learning.

Dates and Hours
Session 1: July 25-30, 2018 (not offered in 2017)
Each day we will meet from 9am to 5pm (35 total contact hours)

Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology; Principles and exercises for improving technique and avoiding common injuries – 2nd Edition with web resources (2016)

This visually rich text is a valuable resource for learning key bones, joints, muscles and movement analysis. Common alignment and technique errors are also discussed in addition to strength exercises, flexibility exercises, and cues that can be used for their improvement. Although many of the examples are dance-specific, the applied nature of this text and its many illustrations make it an essential reference for Pilates, Yoga and Fitness instructors, as well as Dance educators and dedicated dancers.

The second edition retains its scientific perspective while offering greater accessibility to a wider audience. The streamlined approach makes the content more readily covered in a single undergraduate course, and the text comes with a suite of online ancillaries.

Available at a reduced price at Amazon.com
