About The Workshop
Taking what we learned in the first part of this series and utilising our deepening understanding of the application of the Wunda Chair within the framework of a studio class, we will be going further into the repertoire for this piece of apparatus. The day will include exploring the relationship of the arm to the shoulder and spine, using the handles for standing and the step-up/step-down series, the side-lying exercises and those from the floor. We will also be taking the time to address any questions that have emerged for participants during their self-practice in the months since Part I. As always with Hana, at the heart of this workshop is the experiential element that will also incorporate how we, as teachers, can use our hands and our verbal cues/ imagery to support and enhance a client’s experience of their body in movement.
Hana was the first Pilates teacher in this country to include the Wunda Chair in her studio. When she was introduced to it in the late 80’s she discovered an even greater depth to the Pilates Method than she had ever experienced before. She brings her passion for this piece of apparatus to this workshop alongside her lengthy experience in its use.
WORKSHOP FOR APPARATUS TRAINED TEACHERS!!
Hana’s Pilates classes and workshops are reflective and thought-provoking. Under her guidance, you are given the opportunity to rethink your approach to your practice. Her hands-on tactile approach gives you the confidence to open your thoughts to new options and possibilities regarding Pilates. Her use of language supports a visual framework for both teachers and clients, and as a result, promotes a very cohesive and connected experience to the Pilates repertoire” Ethelinda Lashley board member and comprehensive Pilates Foundation teacher based in Edinburgh.
“In my opinion, Hana Jones is one of the best teachers of any of the many methods I have experienced. The profound depth of her knowledge and her personal warmth informs her teaching so that any contact with her is a true learning experience, be it a workshop, private class or informal discussion.” Vanessa Smith Pilates Foundation Teacher Trainer and studio owner based in Glasgow.
