- 9a-12p: Foundation as the Key to Successful Program Design: In this session we will look at what components create a solid movement foundation, and what elements to look for in terms of body alignment. We discuss what it means to “balance the body” and work with asymmetries. Tactile cueing will also be discussed to give teachers ideas on how to set clients up for success.
- 1p-4p: Creating Successful Pilates Programs: What are the steps to creating successful programs? We address this question and outline some of the key components to organize and create successful Pilates workouts for healthy individuals, athletes, and those with special physical considerations. Following the guidelines set forth is key to keeping clients safe, feeling good, and able to advance to more challenging work in a healthy and balanced way.

- 9a-12p: Incorporating the Pilates Ancillary Equipment in Your Programs: The ancillary equipment not only adds variety and challenge to a workout, each piece was designed with a specific purpose in mind: the “foot corrector”, “toe corrector”, “breath-alizer”, the ped-o-pul, bean bag, and rotator discs each have unique and distinct qualities. They will challenge clients of all levels.
- 1p-4p: Pilates History and Archival/Historical Exercises: Learning the roots and history of the Pilates method is key to understanding how it works. We will talk about Joe’s ideas and the goals he envisioned for his work, how he ran his studio, and how his work changed with different clients and students. We will also teach archival advanced exercises that are rarely seen!
