Call to Arms: Hand-Scapula Relationship to Core
with Leslie Powell (February 2)
A workshop exploring the connections of the hand to the Scapula to the core. Especially with our overuse of hands with digital equipment, we are addressing balancing the hand and forearm muscles. With waking up important dormant muscles of the hand and rotator cuff muscles, we can enhance functional shoulder girdle. When the Hand-Scapula relationship is working correctly, the core immediately works deeper
OBJECTIVES: To understand shoulder anatomy and function. How to improve function and ease of motion in the shoulder girdle using Pilates Repertory. Underlying good function is dynamic alignment of the spine.
Improving hand function especially with overuse injuries to technology
Understand how the bones move in scapular-humoral rhythm
What is stabilization of shoulder: its myths and facts
Understanding the importance of the rotator cuff muscles
Improving scapular-humeral rhythm during the workout
Call to Legs: Distal Relationship to Core
with Lesley Powell (February 2)
A workshop exploring the connections of the distal: foot and ankle mechanics to the core. We are addressing balancing the foot and ankle muscles that influences our entire alignment. Our ankles influence our foot, hip and core mechanics. When the Distal relationship is working correctly, the core immediately works deeper.
OBJECTIVES: To understand the connections of distal to the core. How to improve function of the legs to bring in new core connections using Pilates Repertory. Underlying good function is dynamic alignment of the spine.

Understand how the bones of the legs and pelvis move
What is stabilization of legs and hips: its myths and facts
Understanding the importance of the posterior leg muscles
Improving the coordination of legs to core during the workout
How the improved leg relationships enhances the core
Biotensegrity of Core
with Lesley Powell (February 3)
How we use our core that is getting us stuck in our movements. In this workshop about Pilates and embodied anatomy we will explore a different understanding of the space within the body and the coordination of the body. By looking at the core as three dimensional, you will be able to understand how the body was designed to move.
to understand how the spine moves and efficiently give the correct support
