8:30 - 9:30AM Teachers-only Group Mat Class  $35, or free to workshop attendees

9:45AM - 4:30PM Three Mini-Workshops  $400 ($350 before August 1)

  • The Vertical Pelvis on the Tower/Cadillac  This workshop takes a critical look at how to achieve an essential aspect of the Pilates method.  The Tower/Cadillac workout was developed as an invaluable method of strengthening, lengthening and focusing the client on their particular needs.  The correct neural connection can then be applied to the Mat and Reformer, which will facilitate the flow.
  • Being Creative on the Spine Corrector  As the name implies, the Spine Corrector is a superb tool to correct the spine by strengthening, lengthening and creating awareness.  The shape of the barrel stimulates proprioception and provides the neural feedback to enhance one’s Pilates practice.
  • Cleaning up the Reformer This workshop will address the precision and attention to detail that Joe Pilates demanded on the reformer.  Intended to help teachers understand progression, provide good imagery cues and to develop the teacher’s critical eye.

For certified Pilates instructors.  (6 Peak CECs and PMA credits.) 

Contact us or mail deposit of $100 to reserve your spot.  Full payment is due by August 1 in order to receive discounted pricing.  No Refunds will be made after September 1.
