 Posture Rite – Pilates for the desk bound(3hrs)            2 March Monz                                  

 15:00 – 18:00                                                      (Testing-JHB-2Mar-Monz)

 Description:

Proper posture is the place in space where your body is in perfect alignment. All forces are balanced, meaning the muscles are working exactly as much as they should – not any more and not any less.

Proper posture gives us space in our bodies. Space between joints, space in our lungs to breathe, space in our abdominal cavity for our organs to work correctly

Join me in peeling away at the layers of ‘computer posture’ and ‘text neck’ and how to counter these habits through the Pilates Method. Let’s dive into ergonomics and what it means to be sitting at a desk most of the day, driving or looking down at your phone. Let’s create space!

 No Ifs, Just Butts (6hrs)                                                     13 April  Sarah         

 11:30 – 18:00  (Fri)   ½ hr lunch & 1hr class included 

 Description:

I love the BASI programme. But if we look at a basic, intermediate, advanced or master workout, approximately 10%-20% of the class includes gluteal work and strengthening.

- Are you including enough gluteal work in each class and pilates workout?

- Are you incorporating both stability and strengthening hip work?

- Are you making your exercises specific enough for your active clients e.g. cyclists, runners, golfers?

- Are you assessing gluteal and hip mobility, stability and strength?

Join Sarah for this 5hour interactive and practical workshop as we go deeper into the musculature affecting the hip. We will look specifically at gluteal musculature including muscle length, strength and stability. In this workshop, we will focus on gluteal specific exercises and how to incorporate these in your classes and sessions.

Plus, you get a 1hour Mat class.

 Finding movement faults & how to fix it (3hrs)         4 May Theo

 15:00 – 18:00                                              (Testing-JHB-4May-Theo)

 Description:

Teaching exercises is easy, teaching exercises well and making the right decision for your client really distinguishes an average instructor from a great instructor. Often as an instructor you’ll look at a movement and realise that something is not right, but what? And more importantly, how can I correct it? Well, this 3hour workshop serves as an introduction to identifying common faulty movement patterns and how to correct them by applying simple retraining strategies. In this workshop you’ll be covering the following:

- Look at what’s a ‘normal’ movement at a specific joint (neck, shoulder, lower back, hip)

- Identify faulty movement patterns

- Which muscles are responsible and which to focus on

- Looking at different retraining strategies

- How to apply it to correct the faulty movement pattern

It will give you the practical tools to apply to your clients’ program the very next day and look at movement from a very different angle.
