  • MEJO WIGGIN Getting The Most Out of Your Students on The Reformer

    When: Sunday June 23rd 10-3pm Fee: $350 Pre-requisites: Certification through a Comprehensive Classical Pilates Program Course Description: Many times a teacher will challenge a student by giving them a new exercise instead of perfecting what they are already doing. This workshop will help you to “see” what your students are doing, and help them to improve their technique. In doing so, you will target their weaknesses and suddenly each exercise on the reformer will become a new challenge for them. You can challenge students without even introducing a new exercise! It’s all about the right cuing and the correct spotting for them, with attention to the specific details that will change their body. This workshop will review most of the commonly taught exercises on the reformer. We will watch each other move, and see how different cuing can completely change an exercise and get more out of you. Be prepared to workout…. we can only learn by watching each other.

  • Look, Listen, Push, Pull: Training Freedom and Support in the Head, Neck, and Shoulders ( A 2-Day MOVE ENT SCIENCE MADE SIMPLE workshop with Cara Reeser and Jeremy Lavardure)

    WHEN: November 9-10th 10am- 5pm (2-days, 12 CEC Hours) FEE: $575 (20% discount for returning MSMS students who have already taken this course) Description: 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 necks and shoulders? Poor postural habits, learned physical attitudes, and our universal use of computers probably contribute. But, as Pilates 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. 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. LINK TO REGISTER:
