Hey NY/NJ/CT Pilates Teachers! I am coming to Pilates for Every Body in Westport CT on Saturday October 12, 2019 for a day of Pilates Modifications for Clients with Osteoporosis (Mat & Apparatus, Beg - Adv.).

If you teach PIlates and have clients with osteoporosis (low bone density), this live workshop is for you! Learn what movements are contraindicated, what exercises are the most beneficial, and easy to remember rules for modifying any and every exercise in the Pilates repertoire.

We will spend the morning focusing on the full mat (Beginner-Advanced), and the afternoon on the apparatus. We will focus on Reformer, Cadillac, and Wunda Chair (Beginner-Advanced), but I will also answer questions and provide suggestions for other Pilates apparatus.

This workshop will be limited to 10 participants and is approved for 3 PMA cecs.

Online Pilates Workshop to Benefit Sunni Almond 8/8/18

Sunni and Scott

I give thanks every single day for my husband and our marriage, and as he gets into his 60s I feel some anxiety. My friend and colleague Sunni Almond, the vivacious creator of Going More Joe, lost her husband Scott suddenly and unexpected just a few weeks ago, leaving her without many financial resources.

From Sunni,

"What happened instead, after the doctor was going to turn us away this third time, was, I told the doctor that I wasn't taking Scott home until he diagnosed him. After the Ultrasound, the doctor didn't find a hernia, but Scott had spent three solid weeks in bed in pain, and I demanded an answer. I pressured him to do further diagnostics, so a cat scan was done, and stage IV inoperable colorectal cancer was found. It had also traveled to the lungs, lymph and liver."

Scott Almond passed at home, in hospice care, just 6 weeks later. I just can't even imagine.

After buying an advertising subscription on Going More Joe and donating to the Go Fund Me page, I thought, "what else can I do?" Well, what I can do is teach some online Pilates workshops and give half the money to Sunni!

Mastering the Mat - Sunni Almond Benefit

In this 2 hour Mastering the Mat online workshop for Pilates teachers, we will explore the basic and beginning Pilates mat, standing exercises, 2x4, and wall exercises, along with modifications and variations for special populations. We will also explore where we see these shapes on the apparatus. Just this one training will give you tons of ideas for your current and upcoming Pilates classes.

Workshop includes unlimited access to the workshop video (in case you can't make it to the live event) and a private Facebook group for questions and discussion.

And I am sending 50% of proceeds directly to Sunni to help with ongoing expenses!

Pilates for Hernia and Diastasis Recti Workshop

Pilates for Hernia and Diastasis Recti Workshop for Teachers - Sunday, July 10, 2016 1-4pm at Real Pilates Soho

Training clients with hernia and diastasis recti requires a small shift in thinking and approach for many Pilates teachers. It is crucial at the beginning that these clients avoid increases in intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), yet almost all beginning Pilates exercises involve working with just that.
This is a really fun and useful workshop!

What is a Hernia?

According to the NIH,

A hernia is a sac formed by the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneum). The sac comes through a hole or weak area in the strong layer of the belly wall that surrounds the muscle. This layer is called the fascia.

Basically, a hernia is an area where the intestines start to protrude through a weak area in the abdominal wall. Hernias are named for location (inguinal – groin, umbilical – belly button, hiatal – upper abdomen, femoral – upper thigh).

Hernias are caused by straining while abdominal pressure is increased – it can happen on the toilet, opening a window, or even lifting weights and/or doing abdominal exercises incorrectly.

What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis Recti as defined by the NIH:

Diastasis recti is a separation between the left and right side of the rectus abdominis muscle, which covers the front surface of the belly area.

Most diastasis recti is seen in pregnant women, where the muscle separates as the woman’s belly expands, but I have also seen it in men, and is also present in some infants.

Pilates Can Help IF It Is Taught Correctly

Luckily, it is easy to modify exercises and cue your clients to work in a way that helps.
In this workshop, I will share the successful modifications and techniques that have made me lower Manhattan’s most sought out classical Pilates specialist for people with diastasis recti and hernia. This 3 hour workshop includes anatomy, lecture, and practice on mat and apparatus.
You will leave with many, many tools to help your clients literally pull themselves together!
