Title of workshop: BODY HARMONICS Breathing Mechanics and Protocols - CALIFORNIA

And, as one of the guiding principles of Pilates, breathing is integral to building bodies that move with ease and integrity. This workshop provides you with the biomechanics and physiological underpinnings of this vital process. Theory crosses over to experience as you explore several ways to breathe in order to enhance function of the respiratory and musculoskeletal systems. Throughout the day we will work interactively to interpret different faulty breathing patterns, understand how they affect movement and posture, and ultimately, how to help reverse them for optimal function. Learning Objectives: Navigate how breathing works and learn what happens with every breath. Learn the biomechanics of the breath cycle; which muscles are involved, and how they work on inhalation and exhalation. Learn a sequence of exercises to help unlock the breath for improved function and posture. This workshop is appropriate for Pilates Instructors, movement educators and therapists.

We will explore how the Psoas works in a multidimensional way as an integrative centering complex partnering the hamstrings, adductors, abdominals, and pelvic floor throughout the Pilates exercises on all apparatus.

You will learn: • how to assess causes of balance problems • how to work with single side weakness to create better muscle balance • how to diagnose ineffective compensations and help remedy them • how and when to stretch to manage spasticity • techniques to create “detour circuitry” in the brain and spinal cord to work around existing nervous system damage • … and much more!

Title of workshop: BODY HARMONICS Core Integrity: The Locomotor Slings of Movement - CALIFORNIA
Workshop description: We all know that a strong core is key to optimal function, balance and equilibrium. But how can we best facilitate effective core control and still create programs that appeal to average people who find it difficult to connect to subtle movements and deep inner muscles? In this workshop, we take a global approach to the concept of core and analyze both the inner and outer cylinders of support. These core systems help produce support and movement for the entire body as they criss-cross and spiral the torso. Also in-depth analysis is followed by observation and self-practice using specific exercises for each layer. You leave with a clear idea of how to help people connect to the different parts of their core. Learning Objectives: Discover what the inner unit of support is and how it functions. Learn what the outer unit of support is and how it functions. Practice exercises for both inner and outer units for optimal core control. Explore ways to develop a sequence of exercises based on the core systems. This workshop is appropriate for Pilates Instructors, movement educators and therapists.

Title of workshop: BODY HARMONICS Neurophysiology of Pilates 101 - CALIFORNIA
Workshop description: Our nervous system is a vital underpinning to our daily movement and function and yet it remains the most elusive and least understood of the bodily systems. The nervous system is our information super highway that controls all the information that we take from our environment, and integrates it into meaningful functional movement. Through the manipulation of sensory input we can affect a change in the structural organization of the nervous system and thus how we move. In this way, the brain's structure becomes the information that it receives. This workshop is based on the latest research on the brain and how it can adapt and change its structure in response to information. You will gain a basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, as well as the system pathways responsible for both perceiving our environment and moving within our environment. An appreciation of the neurological underpinnings of movement will help your cueing become more powerful in order to affect the responses you want in your clients. You will also learn how to design exercises that better access the nervous system to facilitate improved motor control and awareness.

We look at each joint and muscle in the shoulder blade, collar bone and arm bone and their contribution to scapulohumeral rhythm, the coordinated movement of all three parts of the shoulder complex. We then apply this information to movement impairments of the scapula and humerus as well as common conditions of the shoulder complex and conclude with a plan of action using Pilates-based exercises and more to restore optimal function and movement. Learning Objectives: Gain a systematic and in-depth understanding of the upper limb system. Learn both methodical and creative ways to approach movement impairments in the shoulder complex. Explore a variety of exercises that go beyond the Pilates repertoire and push the envelope in terms of restoring optimal function and movement.

Workshop description: Starting with a review of the anatomy of the hip and knee plus all the muscles that wind around the pelvis, thigh and hip, we move on to examine which muscles are local and global and how to apply this information to movement. From there we consider subjective and objective evaluations of all the compartments of the lower limb. A major focus is two main functions of the lower limb: sit to stand and gait—how to assess these key functions and what to do to improve their execution. We also spend time on functional movement in general and common conditions of the lower limb—pelvis, hip and knee—as well as Sahrmann’s 11 movement impairments of the pelvis and hips. We conclude with a plan of action to restore optimal function and movement. Learning Objectives: Gain a systematic and in-depth understanding of the lower limb. Learn both methodical and creative ways to approach movement impairments in the pelvis, hip and knee. Explore a variety of exercises that go beyond the Pilates repertoire, and push the envelope in terms of restoring optimal function and movement.
