Low Back Pain & Pilates: Flexion Based Programs


Low back pain is prevalent and the same Pilates exercise can aid or aggravate different clients. This workshop will focus on understanding the common low back conditions of lumbosacral strain, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis, as well as why spinal flexion can aid and spinal extensions aggravate them. Participants will learn novel Pilates-based exercises and modifications for classical Pilates exercises designed to build necessary three dimensional core strength that emphasize flexion and neutral positions, while avoiding excessive spinal hyperextension.
Price $260
WORKSHOP 2pm – 5pm. PAA: 3 PDP points
Low Back Pain & Pilates: Extension Based Programs


This workshop will focus on understanding the common low back conditions of disc injury, flat back, and osteoporosis, as well as why spinal flexion can exacerbate these conditions. Participants will learn novel Pilates-based exercises and modifications for classical Pilates exercises designed to build necessary core strength to promote a healthy back that emphasize the use of extension and neutral positions, while avoiding excessive flexion.
Price $260

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 18TH

WORKSHOP 9am – 4pm. PAA:  7 PDP points
Reforming Flexibilty/Enhancing Flexibility with Pilates

Many clients miss potential flexibility benefits of Pilates by failing to adequately stabilize body segments or by allowing undesired compensations to occur when end ranges of motion are approached. This workshop will provide easy assessment tools, cues, and stretches on the Reformer than can be added to a movement session without breaking the flow. The focus will be on providing exercises for the spine, hip, and shoulder that incorporate static, PNF, dynamic and functional approaches in a progressive manner. These exercise progressions will both improve flexibility and help prepare clients for classical repertoire that demands large ranges of motion.
Price $500

Workshops with the Pilates Fitness Institute

There are also a bunch of fantastic workshops that the Pilates Fitness Institute runs. These range from topics such as: “Don’t hate your hip flexors”, “Free the knee”, “Epic extension” and Pregnancy specific workshops. Although you won’t gain any PDP points through these workshops, the wealth of knowledge you will receive is invaluable. Have a look at the full schedule below and expand your Pilates repertoire.
