Reforming Flexibility; Enhancing Flexibility with Pilates

Time: 6 Hours

Description: Many clients miss potential flexibility benefits of Pilates by failing to adequately stabilize body segments or by allowing undesired compensations to occur when end ranges of motion are approached. This workshop will provide easy assessment tools, cues, and stretches on the Reformer than can be added to a movement session without breaking the flow. The focus will be on providing exercises for the spine, hip, and shoulder that incorporate static, PNF, dynamic and functional approaches in a progressive manner. These exercise progressions will both improve flexibility and help prepare clients for classical repertoire that demands large ranges of motion.
