During Los Angeles workshop – breaking down Semi circle at the Wall and a duet practicing Teaser on the Spine Corrector.
An advanced teacher class working on their own technique with Standing arm exercises, T-Pull with yoga instructor and personal trainers learning Series of 5.
From my workshop “Gold and the Three Chairs.” Hug a Tree on the Baby Arm chair, One leg pumping on the Electric chair. Besides the more utilized Wunda chair, these two chairs help to activate the whole body just like all other Pilates apparatus – even when not expected.
Wall Chair, a mat class ending used quite often to reinforce the depth created in supine, sideline and prone positions. Added difficulty is the One Leg Chair. Partner work using their legs as support and the resistance of therobands to practice Teaser.
Workshops for special needs. Pilates offers a huge range of movements and flows that help people to stay as healthy and flexible and without pain as much as possible.
Workshops for any age and gender, partner stretches, for trust, teambuilding and because it's fun!
