Title of Workshop: Beyond Core Control: Pilates Exercise and the Muscular Slings
Workshop Description: Pilates exercise has long been known to work from the inside - out. We first recruit muscles of core stabilization (the ‘inner unit’) to form a stable base from which to work. We then move our trunk and limbs with larger muscle groups to create our everyday functional movements. When our stabilizers and mobilisers are working efficiently the result is optimally coordinated and efficient movement. As instructors and practitioners of Pilates exercise, creating awareness of these muscle groups and their proper facilitation is one of our main objectives. We will focus on the muscles that we call the mobilizers of the body and will investigate their crucial role in movement as well as in providing more stability and protection for the inner, stabilizing muscles and joints. We will look at the body from a ‘muscular slings’ perspective using the concepts of Andry Vleeming and relate them, in a systematic way, to Pilates exercises.

Title of Workshop: Science Behind Stretching: Safe and Effective PNF and Facilitated stretching techniques
Workshop Description: Pilates exercise has always been renowned for its ability to improve strength and flexibility. By teaching attentiveness to the body we are able to increase awareness of movement and to where movement is blocked. As a Pilates instructor it is necessary to be able to assess which structures may be responsible for causing the restricted movement – be it muscle, fascia, joint, neural tissue or simply neuromuscular patterning. In this workshop we will discuss these contributions to faulty and restricted movement and learn ways to improve flexibility in both the spine and the limbs. We will cover nerve tensioning and mobilization, muscle and fascia stretching,PNF stretching techniques and the use of breath to facilitate increased mobility.

Title of Workshop: Science of Strength - Getting the most out of your muscles with Pilates exercise
Workshop Description: Greater strength, power and endurance can be the result of performing Pilates exercise but an understanding of the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal factors which contribute can be invaluable to increase the effectiveness of your teaching. Joseph Pilates said “If you faithfully perform your Contrology exercises… you will develop muscular power with corresponding endurance, ability to perform arduous duties, to play strenuous games, to walk, run or travel long distances..”    In this workshop we will explore the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal factors which contribute to increased muscle strength and endurance. We will cover the following topics: relevant muscular anatomy and physiology, the mechanism of muscle hypertrophy, the concepts of neurological inhibition and excitation, the Overload Principle and how to apply it to Pilates exercise.
