Rumour has it that J. Pilates got his inspiration to design these from beer barrels. These three pieces of equipment are valuable tools in the art of Pilates.
Barrels teacher training is divided into 2 separate workshops: Ladder Barrel is taught over 5 hours on a Sunday and Spine Corrector/Small Barrel is taught over a weekend (9 hours).
Ladder Barrel: beginners/intermediate/advanced
This one-day workshop is intense. It offers great support of the spine along with mobility.
It helps to understand and practice the reformer. It adds a small but valued repertoire.
Small Barrel or Arc and
Spine Corrector: beginners/intermediate/advanced
This 2-day workshop on the arc and spine corrector aids depth in our understanding of the use of the spine in the Pilates technique. It's one of the foundation courses and a very important part of training to become an accomplished teacher.
