Wellington, Friday 13 March 2020

Friday workshops hosted at Kumutoto, PWC Centre, 10 Waterloo Quay, Wellington

Putting Your Best Foot Forward, 9am-12pm
Bunions, hammertoes, plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, post menopausal foot concerns -- what’s a person to do?! In this explorative and experiential workshop, you will learn strategies and exercises to work with these considerations. Having healthy feet is essential as we age and is often overlooked, until pain sets in. Poor foot health can lead to sedentary lifestyles, which in turn can lead to depression and malaise. Something as simple as going for a walk can be a burden and a huge challenge for someone with poor foot health. This workshop is highly sensory as we will explore the foot and ankle with use of small props and simple tools to aid in our discovery process and journey to achieving healthy feet. They’ll thank you for it! Suitable for Pilates teachers.

Straight Talk About Osteoporosis, Best Practices for Pilates Teachers and Q&A, 1pm-3pm
Let’s join together to discuss this topic in an open forum, share information and stories and support the community of those wanting to know more about osteoporosis and bone density concerns and contraindications. We’ll discuss current research as stated by the National and International Osteoporosis Foundation and the World Health Association. This is a discussion and Q&A where we will dialogue and support each other, empower and inspire so that we can make the most positive impact on our clients and the Pilates industry that we can by using current research in our Pilates programming. Suitable for Pilates teachers and clients. Anyone is welcome!

Creative Variations and Modifications for Lower Extremity Considerations, 3pm-6pm
The osteoporosis, osteoarthritic and aging demographic can sometimes present certain challenges to their Pilates teacher ... an inability to kneel/get down to the floor and up, have foot and/or ankle weakness and immobility, knee pain etc. Because hip strengthening is essential for this population (to help prevent bone loss in their hip joint which could lead to a hip fracture and to prevent osteoporosis), how can we provide training if clients cannot get down to the ground? This floor-based workshop will illustrate creative and intelligent ways to help your clients build strength in their hips, legs, feet and lower extremities without having to fully rely on getting to the floor. In this inspiring workshop using chairs, physio balls, the wall and small props, you will learn a variety of techniques to utilise with your students and keep the creativity wheel rolling when it comes to finding strategies for hip strengthening for those who cannot fully get to the floor unassisted. Suitable for Pilates teachers.

Wellington, Saturday 14 March 2020

R.I.S.E. and Shine Mat Workshop, 9am-12pm
Hosted at Kumutoto, PWC Centre, 10 Waterloo Quay, Wellington
Resistance, Intensity, Strengthening and Extension -- the keys to a successful Pilates program for someone with osteoporosis, low bone mass or low bone density. In this workshop we will address postural basics and the theme of axial elongation and use small props to create positive and meaningful movement outcomes for you and your clients. Creativity with intention! Suitable for Pilates teachers and clients.

Reformer & Jump Board Programming for the Fit Osteoporosis Client, 1pm-3pm
Hosted at the BodyMagic Studio, Level 3/39 Johnston St, Wellington
Impact, resistance and variable intensity training is incredibly important for building bone density and strength and the Jump Board is a perfect accessory to use for this. In this Reformer workshop we’ll use the Jump Board and jump from our feet while supine and side lying as well as jump from our hands for wrist and shoulder strengthening. You’ll get your heart rate up to achieve that cardio burst that’s healthy for anyone and work bone building concepts with impact and have fun doing it. Suitable for Pilates teachers.

Reformer Programming for the Fit Osteoporosis Client, 3pm-6pm
Hosted at the BodyMagic Studio, Level 3/39 Johnston St, Wellington
Work on building bone and improving bone density in this Reformer workshop that will focus on strength and balance. Avoiding flexion, rotation and side bending as suggested by the World Health Organisation for proper bone loading strategies, the sequences in this workshop will follow bone loading protocols and are safe for those wanting to improve their strength, balance and endurance. The decompression, elongation and stability will challenge all clients with osteoporosis and are good for anyone. Suitable for Pilates teachers.

Auckland, Sunday 15 March 2020

Venue of Sunday workshops to be confirmed.

Ascend and Extend, a Mat Workshop Focusing on Extension and Healthy Shoulder Mechanics, 9am-12pm
The thoracic spine is the most susceptible area for spinal compression fractures. Gravity is above us and behind us pressing on this part of our back and spine, ever pushing us forward and downwards. Technology posture and most human tasks occur in flexion biased postures, thereby putting negative load on our posterior body, especially the mid-thoracic and shoulder girdle. In this workshop we will discuss the importance of axial elongation, spinal decompression, spinal extension (especially in the thoracic spine) and scapula organisation. With the use of small props and each other for assistance and resistance, we’ll explore spinal extension and ideas of simple back bending to build understanding of the importance of staying upright, mobile and strong for good posture and spine health. Suitable for Pilates teachers.

Functional Flexibility Movement Class, 1pm-3pm
For those who can get to the floor unassisted, this fascia focused floor-based movement class will help you and your clients become more flexible in body, mind and spirit. You will feel more functionally mobile, but also experience a feeling of calm centeredness by traveling into the parasympathetic nervous system. This class focuses on our ability to move with more ease, less pain, true function and self expression in a non-competitive way. Suitable for Pilates teachers and clients. Anyone is welcome!

Balance, the Key to Feeling Confident and Maintaining Independence, 3pm-6pm
Healthy feet, strong hips, an elongated, supple spine and fascial fitness all contribute to the overall and absolute necessity for staying vibrant and feeling youthful. They also happen to be key components to having a healthy stride and steady balance leading to an overall feeling of confidence, radiance and longevity! In this workshop, you will learn fall prevention strategies, look at gait mechanics and balance skills. By incorporating simple games and using neural plasticity drills, this engaging workshop will inspire you and your clients to keep wanting to improve their balance so to feel resilient, confident and living a life of independence! Suitable for Pilates teachers.
