UNITED KINGDOM - Look, Listen, Push, Pull: Training Freedom and Support in the Head, Neck, and Shoulders  
Friday, September 28, 2018 - Sunday, September 30, 2018 - All Day
Pepilates (Clapham Location) , 9 Park Hill, London, United Kingdom

Date of Workshop: September 28 - 30, 2018
Presenter(s): Cara Reeser and Jeremy Laverdure
Workshop Time of day: TBA
Title of Workshop: Look, Listen, Push, Pull: Training Freedom and Support in the Head, Neck, and Shoulders
Workshop Description: Our neck functions to position our head for seeing, hearing, and communicating. Our shoulders are meant to allow our arms and hands to reach, grasp, and push in a large range. Easy enough, right? So why do our clients experience so much difficulty and discomfort in their necks and shoulders? Poor postural habits, learned physical attitudes, and our universal use of computers probably contribute. But, as Pilates teachers, are we helping our clients retrain bad patterns or just adding new ones? In this Movement Science Made Simple course we will: -Study the organization of the head, neck, and shoulder girdle in common Pilates exercises. -Examine the relationship between the arms, shoulder girdle and trunk in both open and closed kinematic chains. We know poor use of the neck and shoulders when we see it, but what are we really seeing? -Learn simple exercises and gentle hands-on techniques for mobilizing the neck and shoulders and re-patterning their movement. This course begins on a Friday evening, followed by two 7-hour days on Saturday and Sunday (including a 1-hour lunch break). Actual times TBA. The Friday evening consists of a 2-hour mat class taught by Cara Reeser. (This is part of the workshop and is included in the workshop price for the participants.) Enrollment in a single day of the course is not permitted.

Workshop description: The Center for Women's Fitness 2 Day 16 hour Pre and Postnatal Pilates Specialist Certification is the flagship course that started The Center’s teacher training courses. When it was first implemented in 1998, the information was deemed “controversial” and “went against the grain” of what was accepted at the time. With nearly 20 years in the business of transforming how teachers look at the pre and postnatal client, we can say that our programs have changed lives, have always been a couple of steps ahead of the game and with nearly 2000 teachers in 40 countries we are proud to be the leading pre and postnatal program for Pilates worldwide. This course will show you how to “Prepare the Body” and “Repair the Body” during pregnancy and the postnatal period. You will be introduced to a different way of looking at female anatomy and physiology and the changes that occur during pregnancy, birth and beyond. You will learn our “method” of program design for this population that will truly address their needs and requirements for safe, beneficial exercise.

Presenter(s): Jasmin Sheta
Workshop Time of day: Thursday & Friday 13.30-19.30 Saturday 09.00-17.00 Sunday 09.00-15.00
Title of Workshop: The Neurofascia Bridge Prelude
Workshop Description: Programme overview: Bridge 1 is open to all qualified movement, manual and medical professionals to learn and experience how to take your work into the newly appreciated world of neurofascia. This profound new body of work brings you to a new dimension of the body, leading you into the 'century for change'. The 4 days will expand your professional horizons, and offer you new therapeutic applications for physical and physiological change. It introduces you to the concept and experience of Spatial Medicine bridging manual, movement and medical approaches to see and effect as one; it will change the way you work forever. What does it offer: The Bridge Prelude offers an enriched experience and therapeutic applications to understand and work with the nature of the neurofascial system. It demonstrates how the fascia is the regulatory system, the greatest sensory organ, our stability system, and the distribution system, offering you new ways to see, to perceive and to work with the body from this fascial perspective. Through what we do (and even think) we are always creating fascial change. Becoming conscious of this continuous subconscious happening we can elicit profound and sustained change, at will. These days will teach you to recognize and change fascial imbalances, the strain patterns, habit patterns, and associated re-action patterns that in time become our symptoms; by re-storing to re-set the neurofascial pathways we influence the whole of your physiology. This work offers a new vision and a new application for rehabilitation; teaching you to re-connect, re-negotiate and thereby re-regulate movement and neural state. In these 4 days you will perceive yourself and your work from a new perspective, see infinite new possibilities and ways to infuse this information into your work and lives.
