  • USPA: A Day of Continuing Education with David Freeman

But how often do we plan a program for our clients with these 6 principles in mind? Are we going to work on Flow and Precision today? Or will it be Breathing and Concentration. Certainly, we cannot expect a beginner or for that matter an intermediate to grasp all 6 Principles at once. Which of the principles should we emphasize and when? Are there certain exercises that warrant more Flow than Precision? More Concentration than Breathing? Which Principles will accomplish the primary goal of the exercise?This workshop examines the Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Systems with an eye towards the 6 Principles and their application. 3) The Full Wunda Chair 3:15PM - 5:15PM A small but powerful apparatus designed to challenge even the most advanced students. Learn how to make this apparatus as challenging as any other apparatus and learn some archival Wunda chair exercise. This Continuing Education Seminar will qualify as Continuing Education for The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Certification Program.

  • MEJO WIGGIN Reform Your Reformer: Pilates Course

    When: Sunday June 23rd 10-3pm Fee: $350 (early bird $300) Pre-requisites: Certification through a Comprehensive Classical Pilates Program

    WHEN: November 9-11th Look, Listen, Push, Pull: Training Freedom and Support in the Head, Neck and Shoulders 2-days, 12 CEC Hours $575 (20% discount for returning MSMS students who have already taken this course) Our neck functions to position our head for seeing, hearing, and communicating. Our shoulders are meant to allow our arms and hands to reach, grasp, and push in a large range. Easy enough, right? So why do our clients experience so much difficulty and discomfort in their neck and shoulders? Poor postural habits, learned physical attitudes, and our universal use of computers probably contribute. But, as Pilates and Yoga teachers, are we helping our clients retrain bad patterns or just adding new ones? In this Movement Science Made Simple course we will: • Study the organization of the head, neck, and shoulder girdle in common Pilates exercises and Yoga asanas. • Examine the relationship between the arms, shoulder girdle and trunk in both open and closed kinematic chains. We know poor use of the neck and shoulders when we see it, but what are we really seeing? • Learn simple exercises and gentle hands-on techniques for mobilizing the neck and shoulders and re-patterning their movement.
