Millions of adults live with scoliosis or other postural imbalances. We have all encountered clients with these conditions or perhaps you suffer yourself from one of these complaints. Learn to do complete Postural Analysis and offer remedial/modified Pilates exercises for the Mat, Reformer, Wunda Chair and Cadillac to help clients realign posture. Living with scoliosis and learning to master chronic back pain herself, Jillian's knowledge of these helpful modifications is unsurpassed.
SLIGHTLY ASKEW PILATES
Presented by Pat Guyton
Thursday, May 28, 2020
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Joe Pilates believed good movement skills were derived from proper form, emphasizing precision, centering, balance and correct alignment. Joe’s wisdom is critical to remember when instructing students with different bodies, unique challenges and abilities. Because all bodies are all slightly askew, Pat Guyton offers reminders that imbalances are the compelling reason to do Pilates as a lifetime practice. Learn how she teaches clients to enjoy the challenge and let go of judgement.
Finish off your PES experience by adding a post-conference training with Pilates experts Michael Fritzke and Ton Voogt. Expand your teaching skills with this dynamic duo.
SPIRALDYNAMIK® AND PILATES
Presented by Michael Fritzke and Ton Voogt
Sunday, May 31, 2020
8:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Everyone has the full potential of optimal movement. Spiraldynamik® was developed by an international research team led by Dr. Christian Larsen from Switzerland. It’s a movement concept based on the evolution of human locomotion. Until recently it was not accessible to non-German speaking professionals. Spiraldynamik® provides a model of movement to help each of us discover our own movement potential. In this workshop you will be introduced to the principles of Spiraldynamik® and how these principles can create a new dimension in your Pilates sessions.
Join us for these special events during PES to help get better connected with the Pilates community. Both events are free to all attendees.
