What an amazing weekend full of learning about human movement and efficient ways to move the body! I can say that, hands down Sean is the best money I have ever spent on any training! He is wise beyond measure and truly has a gift for teaching. I cannot wait to expand on the knowledge he shared with us this past weekend and continue to learn.

Sean’s workshops are recognized with Continuing Education Credits according to the guidelines set forth by the Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher Program, formerly the Pilates Method Alliance.


Objectives

  1. This workshop discusses the basic foundation of applied biomechanics, and offers teachers knowledge on how to break down each Pilates exercise and understand the intended joint movements.
  2. Participants will learn progressive and athletic Pilates techniques, which teach each student critical thinking skills and how to modify each exercise for all fitness levels.
  3. The skills and techniques will be combined with traditional and classical Pilates exercises designed for today’s student and their unique needs, based on current lifestyle and fitness requirements.
  4. Combine athletic and progressive Pilates exercises using the Balanced Body Clinical Reformer with mobility and strength applications, including a warm-up, workout, and functional flexibility addressing the programed exercises.

 

Goals

  1. Take the foundational exercises and techniques of Joseph Pilates and add unique and effective ways to use the Reformer while staying authentic to the Pilates method.
  2. Combine classical and traditional Pilates exercises with progressive and athletic exercises. This workshop merges fitness-based programing and Pilates, demonstrating how movement, whether in a Pilates studio or gym, can have the same intended outcome.
