Irish Pilates Teachers – you’re in for a treat! Blossom, owner of Bridge Pilates in New York, is coming to share her Pilates expertise with us! We are especially excited for Blossom to pass on the techniques she learned while studying and working closely with Pilates ‘elder’ Kathy Grant for nearly two decades. Join us at Pilates Centre on the 13th and 14th of June. We’re here to help you learn from the best so that you can get the best out of your Pilates clients!
Saturday June 13th
BEFORE THE HUNDREDS
12:30pm–7:30pm (break 3:30pm–4:30pm)
Blossom assisted Kathy Grant's matwork class at NYU for 10 years. In that class, Kathy developed a vocabulary of warm‐up exercises that came before starting the traditional Pilates matwork. Before the Hundreds are the building blocks to doing the traditional Pilates vocabulary. This is the heart of Kathy's work.
The exercises have a huge stylistic range, but can be easily assimilated into your teaching. Before the Hundreds include warm-up movements that will mobilise, deeply strengthen your abdominals, and enhance your body awareness. After this workshop, you will have a new toolkit to get in tune with your body.
Sunday June 14th
In this Reformer workshop, we will refresh your usual routine. With the use of some simple images and the occasional inexpensive prop, we will learn how to get more out of our clients and ourselves on this well‐used piece of Pilates equipment. We will follow the traditional order of Mr. Pilates with an emphasis on the most performed exercises. Blossom will share some unique Kathy Grant Reformer exercises and choreographic 'inserts', as well as her own collection of simple yet effective movements that complement the traditional work. Come join in the fun, get new tools for your teaching toolbox, and revitalise your Reformer routine.
Kathy loved cats and loved the way they moved. They inspired her to make up many different exercises based on their movements. You’ll learn all of Kathy’s ‘Cats’ and how Kathy used them within the traditional Pilates framework.
You’ll discover that the principles, imagery and skills of the Cats can transfer to other Pilates exercises, both on and off equipment. Kathy Grant’s Cats are a wonderful way to warm up a group of students, assess a new client's spinal movement patterns, and stretch without tension.
Full Weekend: €600
