Presented by Lori Coleman-Brown
Intermediate Pilates Seminar
Joseph Pilates scorned mechanical and careless exercise methods. In this two-day workshop our aim is to come to a better understanding of how to perform effective workouts through thoughtful use of the Intermediate Pilates exercises. We’ll focus on the underpinning principles of the system, emphasizing concentration, natural movement, leverage and rhythm.
Lori will present analysis of the Intermediate Pilates exercises, explore their relevant structural anatomy, and review the goals of each. We’ll practice the exercises in order to know better in our own bodies the work that Joseph Pilates called “Contrology.” Participants should be physically prepared to perform all of the Intermediate exercises to the best of their abilities.

In this workshop, Blossom will dive into the Wunda Chair exercises that are less often taught. An hour-long Wunda Chair session usually leaves out some wonderful exercises. We will take a look at, demystify and explore some of these to broaden and deepen your own practice as well as that of your students. It has been my experience that some of these are ideal for clients who have a specific issue or seeking a fresh challenge. Diversify your Wunda Chair teaching repertory with accessible Wunda Chair exercises that will transform your understanding of this studio workhorse.

The Anatomy Workshop
In this workshop, Pam DeJohn will focus on the study of anatomy as it relates to Pilates. The Pilates method began when a family physician gave the teenage Joseph Pilates a discarded anatomy book. He memorized the book and began moving each part of his body and figuring out which muscles and bones were involved in the movement. This was where he developed the art of Control. In this workshop you will study the muscles that move us through the Pilates work; remember them by using the exercise as a reference point; build your own knowledge in anatomy as you use every Pilates apparatus to practice the movements, and memorize the anatomy.
