Promoting Healthy Aging with Pilates

Time: 6 Hours

Description: This workshop will employ a movement analysis schema to numerous classical Pilates exercises on the Reformer, Chair and Mat. This schema is designed to delineate the primary muscle groups utilized to execute a given movement, as well as key muscles used to stabilize the body and promote optimal technique. The role of gravity, positioning and spring settings will also be addressed. This movement assessment will then be used as a basis to address the risk, effectiveness, modification, cueing and progression of selected Pilates repertoire.
