    Join Pilates ITC Educator, Victoria Becka to explore how optimal alignment of the head, neck and shoulder girdle can help improve performance outcomes. When we work through upper body alignment and the relationships between the neck, head and shoulders we can find freedom to create shapes that release the neck, support the spine and provide strength and stability at the same time.

    This Masterclass is ideal for Pilates ITC Students, Graduates and qualified Pilates Instructors; but it’s also open to clients who are familiar with and capable of accessing progressive to intermediate level repertoire in their own bodies.

    Extension is life! With all our forward, flexed modern life activities it’s also one of the most important types of movements we do today. Join Pilates ITC Educator, Victoria Becka for an exploration of extension repertoire to build confidence in doing and teaching this range of movement. Victoria will be considering muscle recruitment patterns and alignment so we can safely tap into your body’s ultimate expression of this range and learn new, smart ways to talk about extension with clients!

    This Masterclass is ideal for Pilates ITC Students, Graduates and qualified Pilates Instructors; but it’s also open to clients who are familiar with and capable of accessing progressive to intermediate level repertoire in their own bodies.

  • Reformer Masterclass: Creating challenge with variations

    Variety is the spice of life, as they say. In Pilates, applying variations to repertoire is how we create challenge, build technique and, as Instructors, enhance our understanding of the repertoire. Join Pilates ITC Educator, Andrew Aroustian to get into the nitty-gritty of Intermediate to Advanced-level variations on the Reformer. Experience the work in your own body, learn how to break it down, layer and build it up and deliver safely for clients.

    This Masterclass is ideal for Pilates ITC Students, Graduates and qualified Pilates Instructors familiar with and capable of accessing intermediate to advanced level repertoire in their own bodies.

The Pelvic Floor and Pilates Workshop

The pelvic floor is a hot topic: do we cue or don’t we? This workshop offers the most up-to-date approach towards the Pelvic Floor and Pilates. We’ll look at the most current alignment-based rationale to give you a new confidence in the application of verbal and hands-on cueing for pelvic floor health.

Combination of lecture, demonstration and experiential learning: gain a deeper understanding of the anatomy of the pelvic floor and its relationship to other systems in the body.

Learn how to identify and apply alignment-based cueing to optimise pelvic floor function in the Pilates studio setting.  

Explore the theoretical anatomy of the trunk compartments, specifically the relationship between ribcage and pelvic alignment; discuss the mechanics of breathing and how this synergistically works with the pelvic floor.

This will be followed by a practical demonstration of tailored movements, cues and alignment principles you can take with you into the Studio. 

WHEN | Saturday, 23 November 12.30pm – 2.30pm

Workshop | Foot Matters in Pilates

The foot plays a fundamental role in shock absorption, propulsion, and balance during upright movements such as walking and running. These demands make the foot a common site for injury and disrupted mechanics. This workshop will provide a brief review of fundamental anatomy of the ankle-foot complex. Participants will then learn exercises on the Pilates reformer designed to challenge key muscles of the foot often missed in Pilates workouts. Cues and technique exercises will also be included that are designed to promote optimal foot mechanics that can be utilized in classical Pilates repertoire and functional movement.

Workshop | Hollowing and Bracing in Pilates

Early Pilates approaches often emphasised hollowing to activate deep abdominal muscles and provide lumbopelvic stability. More recent approaches encourage co-activation of the deep back extensors with the abdominals to maintain neutral lumbopelvic positioning through various bracing strategies. This workshop will provide scientific rationale for the utilisation of both of these approaches. Participants will then learn Pilates-based repertoire, as well as cueing for classical exercises designed to optimise the benefits of bracing and hollowing that will help prepare clients for creating core stability in a variety of functional movements outside of the Pilates studio.

WHEN | Friday, 21 February 2020, 2.00pm – 5.00pm

Workshop | Pilates, Alignment and Posture

This workshop will include a discussion of key alignment problems such as kyphosis, rolled shoulders, in-facing knees, hyperextended knees and excessive foot pronation in terms of their commonly associated strength imbalances, flexibility imbalances, and related postural patterns. Presentation of classical and novel Pilates-based exercises designed to improve these alignment problems, with a particular emphasis on developing kinesthetic awareness and desired muscle activation patterns that can be transferred from isolation exercises to functional movement.

Right from the beginning: The Warm Up as Efficient Preparation
Effective preparation underpins the whole client program.
 
The ‘Warm Up’ section (before The Hundred) of any program provides the opportunity to make or break the session. It is here that we can strategically set up muscle patterns, postural address, and specific focus that allow the program to build from an effective starting point.
 
This preparation section can then be honed for client home practice and progression. In this workshop explore and experience warm-up sequences based on strategic movement pattern and postural address, and take away strategies for maximising the preparation section of any workout within appropriate time frames and with reasoning for different client types.
 
When: Friday, 27 March 2020 2.30pm – 4.30pm
Where: Pilates ITC HQ, PFI Myaree
Cost: $200
RSVP: Book online
PDP: 1

Explore the history and development of the Pilates Method in context of a broader global picture, and build a perspective based in facts and actualities of the time that allows for contextualisation of industry development and lineages.

Within this context we will also look at selected repertoire variations across apparatus and across approaches. This will lead us into excerpts from Creating An Environment for Health. The Pilates Method can be tailored to address the specific indications of all sorts of condition, injury or pathology and is uniquely effective in such a format; but what if we simply strive to create an environment where a healthy state can blossom?

We will consider essential requirements, exercise selections and repertoire variations that allow us to layer a more complex understanding of how to function more efficiently and create a pathway to health.
