TEACHER TRAINING, WORKSHOPS, AND COURSES
with Annie Tusch
This workshop will begin with a basic introduction of how Pilates can help with ski technique and injury prevention.
We will then look in detail at Reformer and Wunda Chair exercises particularly relevant for skiers.
Participants will also leave with some Mat Work ideas which will help skiers prepare for the season ahead.

2.30pm - 5.30pm
with Judy Herbert
Many of us find that the majority of our clients stay with us for years: they are happy with the Method and also with our attention to detail.
This gives us the opportunity to work in depth on some of the harder exercises that we would not be able to tackle with a less experienced client.
However, there can be a fatigue that builds up over time when we are, month in month out, looking at the same material.
One way to refresh ourselves is to specialise in a particular area: another is to employ the skills to stand back - literally - and to lead a session holding a bigger picture in mind.
Moving between the studio equipment and the mat, we will explore the guiding principle of Opposition - both in terms of the body relative to the equipment and the lengthening of the body as a whole. We will apply the same principles to the curve/rolling sequences and the levers/extensions.
Finally we will study a suggested model for a class: how to approach a point of technique that a client needs to improve upon in order to move forwards, by presenting a common thread through contrasting exercises.
