Workshop Topics

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF VINTAGE PILATES An overview of the fundamental principles practiced at Vintage Pilates. Sandy will touch upon concepts that may not have been emphasized in other Pilates programs, to give you a deeper examination of Joe Pilates’ philosophy. We will go over the two-way stretch, movement and flow, and other concepts that are usually explored in-depth, in our other workshops. This is an opportunity to get it all at once—so you can make the connections and get a broad, comprehensive understanding of our approach to Pilates.

IMPROVE YOUR TEACHING This workshop is designed to help you develope your own voice as a teacher. One of the most important skills to develop is observation. This workshop will help you practice observing the body before you so that you can better analyze and intuit what your student needs. As a teacher you should be able to see asymmetries, dysfunction, weakness, tightness, etc. so that you know how to guide your student to be more balanced, functional, strong and mobile in all their movements. Take this opportunity to sharpen your teaching and practice in community with other teachers.

INDEPENDENCE VS. DEPENDENCE We want what’s best for our clients but have we set up a learning environment that holds them back? If your clients rely on you so much that they aren’t moving fluidly through their workouts, aren’t familiar with their exercises or equipment, or haven’t developed an awareness of their bodies, something needs to change. Some of you are ready for this change but aren’t sure how to implement it. Building independence in your students starts with your teaching. In this mini workshop Sandy will share the processes that she found most effective in promoting independence in her students, and in the studio overall.

STABILITY AND MOBILITY Pilates teaches the body to move efficiently by stabilizing your Center so you can move with greater freedom and control. Learn how Joe’s system of exercise challenges to skillfully change your point of stability against gravity through your workout. At the same time, you will experience greater freedom as you move your body in all directions.
