Upcoming March Workshops 2020. 

I am teaching two workshops this March.  Knee Me is a workshop using the Pilates Reformer on understanding how the knee works and enhancing function.  Sensing the Psoas is a unique class of using drawing to visualize the psoas and its function.  See below for more information.

Knee Me – Improving the relationship
between the Knee and Hip 

March 27, 2020 3:30-4:50 PM With Lesley Powell $60
Space Pilates – 900 Broadway #808

The knee is a vulnerable challenged joint. Healthy and well aligned knees help with efficient function. However, incorrect alignment, lack of proper training and injury can cause the knees to become painful as ligaments, joints and muscles are strained. We will look how the knee and hips influence the function of the knees. Open chain is important for building connections. Closed chain especially standing is a different organization. Closed chain is the leading coordinations for Gait and changing of levels.  


  • Understand the anatomy of the leg and its affect on the knee
  • Experience how the function of the knees relates to your hips and feet. 
  • Use Pilates repertory to improve function and balance of Applications for climbing stairs and walking

Sensing the Psoas 

with Lesley Powell  Saturday 3/28/2020 From: 2:15 pm – 5:15 pm

Embodiment of the Psoas is about waking the senses in your body. Drawing is the sense of touch. Drawing will teach us about the structures of the iliopsoas in our torso. Our mapping the Psoas will teach us about the space the iliopsoas has in our body. The movement class using pilates will explore the connections of the Psoas and the feelings of good healthy function.

All are welcome. No experience necessary in drawing.
