Are your verbal cues really that good?
The Franklin Method can help!
Download the Flyer here.
The Franklin Method activates mind-body functions by the rich use of well-timed imagery to create connections in a much deeper way than simply telling a client to "scoop your abs". The whole body system of integration builds on the dynamics of posture by activating the under-used musculature. Result: an aligned body experiencing lower structural stress during movements. The workshop will focus on two topics: Imagery Exercises for a Strong, Flexible & Healthy Spine and Pelvic Power. A release routine with the Franklin orange balls and Pilates mat exercises will be taught..

What is the SELA Chapter of the PMA
Founded in March of 2010, this Chapter of the PMA was formed to further goals in establishing the practice of teaching Pilates as a profession, and to encourage practitioners to become PMA certified. Very simply, we are a group of Pilates professionals dedicated to preserving the teachings of Joseph Pilates and his exercise method, and believe in maintaining standards while respecting the various approaches to Pilates.
Why the SELA Chapter of the Pilates Method Alliance?
We exist to foster professional growth in the growing ranks of Pilates practitioners by offering quality continuing education programs on a local level. Valuing the networking opportunities these workshops and seminars provide, we are proud to be able to offer them at an affordable price...right in our own backyard! Future workshops will include round table discussions on issues and matters related to Pilates as an industry, particularly the process involved in PMA certification. As a local Chapter, we provide a readily available mechanism for regional project development. Through our programming, we are able to direct more people to the PMA, encouraging their membership in the parent organization, as well as in the SELA Chapter.
Who does the SELA Chapter Serve?
As the 1st PMA Chapter in the world, we currently serve Pilates professionals living in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, until such point in time that other local chapters are formed.
How is SELA governed?
The SELA Chapter of the PMA is governed by an elected Board of Directors, each of whom is active in the field and has volunteered to serve the growing membership through effective organizational management.
What type of activities does SELA host?
All-inclusive SELA workshops and seminars will feature Certified Pilates Teachers who are able to award Continuing Education Credits for attendance. We will also bring renowned international Pilates professionals to share their experience, vision, and techniques, so that you can take away practical wisdom to assist you in your personal practice. By hosting Pilates Day celebrations, one of the cornerstones of the SELA Chapter, we promote both the benefits of Pilates exercise to the public, while increasing awareness of the Pilate Method Alliance and its goals. We place the highest value on the feedback from the participants and members, which allows us to evaluate the directions we choose and support our evolution, as we serve the specialized community of Pilates practitioners.
