Hey NY/NJ/CT Pilates Teachers!
Do you have questions about breathing? How to breathe, when to breathe, and teaching breath effectively in the Pilates system?
I am returning to Pilates for Every Body in Westport CT on Saturday January 11, 2020 (snow date January 25) for my second workshop - Breathing In the Pilates System.
Do you have clients who just don’t get the breathing?
Were you taught rules for breathing, like “always exhale on exertion,” that just don’t always seem to work?
Have you wondered about the differences between “bracing”, “scooping”, and laterally breathing?
Have you questioned some of the classical exercises with “odd” breathing patterns, such as inhaling for the push of footwork, coordination, and chest expansion?
And, finally, do you want to truly help your clients strengthen their powerhouses (including the all-important pelvic floor) for the best long-term quality of life?
Well, then - this workshop is for you!
We will spend the morning discussing the anatomy of breathing, and exploring the concept of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), and what breathing patterns can help which movements. Then we will bring out the apparatus and explore how IAP and breath work to help or hinder various Pilates exercises.
This workshop will be limited to 10 participants and will be approved for 3 PMA cecs.
