In this workshop, Dorothee will go over the full repertoire of the advanced system. This is a very demanding workshop and is open only to M.A.T. apprentices and other certified teachers who wish to take continuing education.
"For the first time Pilates wasn't about a series of rigid rules and procedures,
but it was about exercise. Challenging physical exercise.
Dorothee made the system make sense to me."
- Jason Ohlberg, Choreographer
