Balanced Body Pilates on Tour – Boston July 20-21
Call to Arms: Hand-Scapula Relationship to the Core
Saturday 9 AM – 12 PM
This workshop explores the connections of the hand to the scapula to the core. With waking up important dormant muscles of the hand and rotator cuff muscles, we can enhance a functional shoulder girdle. When the hand-scapula relationship is working correctly, the core immediately works deeper.
Biotensegrity and Pilates: A New Model of Movement
Sunday 9 AM – 12 PM
New discoveries in science are making us look at the body and movement in new ways. Fascial science and the concepts of biotensegrity are providing a new framework for understanding the foundation of support within our bodies. Graham Scharr and Rudolph Laban both were fascinated by numerous examples of geometric patterns and shapes in nature and their relationship to the body. Learn about these new models and how they can inform Pilates practice and teaching.
Appropriate for comprehensively trained instructors.
