These two mini-workshops will be 3 hours each, with Sean Gallagher teaching “How Pilates Works the Lymphatic System” and Elaine Ewing teaching “Archival Cuing and Exercises”. We will take an hour lunch break.
How Pilates Works the Lymphatic System with Sean Gallagher
“Contrology is specifically designed and conducted to arouse sluggish blood, distend every capillary, force lymph through every interstice: by stretching every muscle and sinew and wringing out the body All under the strict control of the awakened brain in each of its ten billions of nerve cells.” – Joseph H. Pilates
This workshop will be a review of the lymph system to gain an understanding as to how Authentic Pilates can facilitate the normal function of the lymph and other fluids of the body to improve health and the immune system
Archival Cuing and Exercises with Elaine Ewing
Experience and learn many well-known exercises in the Pilates Method as Joseph Pilates originally created, cued, and taught them. Discover that quite a few exercises and cues were originally done differently! Elaine will teach historical exercises and Joseph Pilates’ hands on cues on the Reformer, Cadillac, and Wunda Chair, then give time to participants to practice doing and teaching the exercises. We will discuss how these historical moves can fit into our own practice, how and when we can use them when teaching our clients, and why the exercises have been changed over time.
