Title of Workshop: Back Extensions: How to Evaluate & Progress Your Students
Workshop Description: Back bends have the surprising effect of happiness, positive mood and extraversion. How can we get these results with our clients? In this workshop, Niedra demonstrates backbending progressions starting with very basic ones all the way to advanced back extensions. To help you understand exactly what your clients need, she begins by covering the joints involved and how to identify when one part of the body is lacking in necessary range of motion. You’ll then work through specific building blocks aimed at opening up and strengthening those stuck spots. She finishes by showing several advanced back extensions that illustrate how those building blocks create the skills to make bigger moves feel fantastic.

Presenter(s): Clare Dunphy Hemani
Title of Workshop: Case Study: Preparing for Hip Replacement
Workshop Description: If you are a teacher dealing with clients who have hip and knee issues, this brilliant workshop will fill your toolbox. In it, Clare and her student Joe Giordano demonstrate a complete repertoire of exercises aimed at knee and hip rehab. When Joe first came to Clare, he was in need of hip replacement surgery and was having extreme difficulty walking. Pilates has helped him recover his ability to walk and has prepared him for his upcoming surgery. Clare shares her strategy behind how she approaches knee and hip issues like Joe's, why the Reformer might not be a good choice when dealing with injured lower extremities, and a complete plan for rebuilding strength and balance without risking further injury.

Presenter(s): Niedra Gabriel
Title of Workshop: Pilates Tolls for Fixing Feet
Workshop Description: Niedra works with Will and Sue who have different issues with their feet. Will’s arches are collapsed and overstretched and must be strengthened and connected to his center; Sue's feet are healthy but she finds that beginning her sessions with a few minutes of concentrated foot exercises helps her access the finer details of her entire workout. Using these different sets of feet as examples, Niedra shows how to see what a foot needs and then guides her students through a variety of corrective and strengthening Pilates exercises. There's a wealth of information here to fix most of any foot needs! Exercises and apparatus demonstrated include arch strengtheners like the Towel, the Toe Corrector to stretch, correct bunions and more, the 2x4 exercises for strength and alignment, the Foot Corrector for breaking up stuck connective tissue or strengthening the entire system, using a Magic Circle to connect the feet to the center, the Reformer for strength and alignment, and using a Small Barrel to stretch the calf and foot.
