Pilates On Tour
At Hilton New Orleans Riverside
Two Poydras Street, New Orleans. LA
Madeline will be lecturing at the PreConference which is a great way to explore new subjects in depth
THE SPINE BY DESIGN This new workshop is an immersive experience including movement classes, lecture and physical techniques for understanding how the spine influences movement and is influenced by forces outside of us. Madeline Black will teach and you will explore how the design of the spine gives us a mobile architecture from which we move and dysfunctions can be sourced for problem solving. The concept of this workshop is based on how by design the spine is our primary moving structure that governs whole body movement. The spine moves the pelvis and affects the shoulder-arm and leg-foot complexes. You will learn how improving proximal movement of the spine creates balanced movement throughout the body, and how the distal areas, the hands and feet, affect the movement of the spine. In addition, exploring the external forces, such as gravity, apparatus and touch effects on enhancing or detracting from the movement and orientation of the spine during exercise. Day 1 will cover the structures and influences of the feet through the spine and Day 2 will cover the head and hands' influence on the spine. Following the success of her newly released book “Centered”, Madeline Black will teach a new format that gives advanced teachers the guided time necessary to hone their skills of seeing, touching, moving and verbalizing clearly and effectively. This approach to physical training is relevant to all populations of people and will help you move your client's body into a place of gaining strength and balance. Learn to match and meet the needs of a variety of body challenges such as skilled movers (athletes, dancers) to geriatric training.
