“Learn to apply the skill of hands-on touch through the Traditional Pilates Method and achieve maximum results in your Pilates session”.
This presentation teaches the Pilates Instructor how to work hands-on with their clients. The practice of Pilates is often detached with the instructor simply directing the client with verbal commands to exercise. The Traditional Pilates Method of instruction as handed down to me from Romana Kryzanowska, directly from Joseph Pilates himself, was a much more interactive and hands-on approach. Employment of the “art of touch” is a physical way to both assess the client as well as guide the performance of their exercise. In this workshop, you will learn how to provide directional, supportive or therapeutic, and stabilization or inhibitory touch to safely and effectively work with the client to optimize their movement patterns during the exercise session.
This workshop will demonstrate to teachers how to utilize multiple approaches to communicate movement through touch. These approaches include directional, therapeutic, stabilization, and motivational touch. Participants will be able to identify where the appropriate location of touch is, and how to design and utilize appropriate methods for their clients’ individual needs, using both Pilates Mat and Apparatus exercises.
