It’s time to bring our extraordinary Pilates community together again! In recent years, we’ve stayed connected in new ways, but we can’t wait to be together in person at the Pilates Empowerment Summit in Fort Lauderdale this September.
Power up your future at PES with the collective strength of instructors, enthusiasts and a supportive community of top Pilates professionals from around the world. Gain insight, heighten your Pilates practice and enhance your expertise in more than 50 unique sessions from leading industry experts, including Peak Pilates® Master Instructors that you won’t find anywhere else.
Go beyond earning CECs and empower yourself with improved technique and teaching skills, nurture your relationships within the Pilates community and link arms as we head into the future. Together we are #peakstrong!
Full Conference Days
Friday and Saturday
Come to PES a day early or stay an extra day and you’ll get the inside track on our Pre- and Post-Conference sessions led by the best Master Instructors in the world. With smaller session sizes and personalized attention, you’ll maximize the weekend with hands-on training, while earning CECs.
No Bones About It!
Pelvis, Legs & Feet
Thursday, September 14 · 8:00am - 5:00pm
Presented by Michael Fritzke and Ton Voogt
Hip and knee replacements are on the rise. Doctors prescribe surgery earlier and earlier. Although it’s amazing what the medical field can do these days, prevention is still the best medicine. In this workshop you will experience how the hip joint, leg, knee, ankle and foot work separately and together to move us forward in life. Understand how the spirals and rotations are crucial in moving correctly and how you can explain this to your clients. Learn exercises that mobilize and strengthen every part of this unit and how to coordinate it as a whole.
Thursday, September 14 · 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Presented by Trey Fry and Zuzana Gimmel
This Franklin Method® workshop focuses on the practical application of imagery techniques to increase the power, alignment and flexibility of the pelvic joints and muscles. Explore how the sacrum moves, and gain a key to understanding and creating efficient, safe movement. Discover imagery and language that explains the complex subject matter at all levels of experience. Leave the workshop with a sense of aligned strength through the pelvic floor, with your feet firmly balanced and spine long and buoyant.
