Pilates for Postural Perfection: Advanced Cueing and
Programming for Improving Common Postural Dysfunctions
Balance, kinesthesia, proprioception and body awareness are all key components for success in movement. Dysfunction can greatly affect any one or all of these systems resulting in poor movement patterns and imbalanced posture. This course is designed to instruct participants in identification of static and dynamic postural dysfunction and how to effectively cue corrections for the maximum benefit of the client. Proper recruitment of the local and global stabilizers will be covered with the integration of the extremities for function and locomotion. Indications will be reviewed with the application of Pilates equipment, props, verbal and manual cueing techniques, and home program options for client carryover.

Pilates for Endurance Athletes
Endurance athletes are a growing subpopulation in the US. Last year almost half a million people completed a marathon. Research studies show that between 50 and 90 percent of runners miss training time due to injury. Pilates, which emphasizes control of the core as well as strengthening of long weak muscles and lengthening of short strong muscles is well suited to be a part of an endurance athletes training regimen. We will explore repertoire which keeps athletes functioning at their optimal potential.

What we’re generating and sifting for are qualified clients.
