**Please Note: Only fully trained Comprehesive/Apparatus Teachers are eligible to attend this workshop**
In this workshop Hana will revisit the fundamental elements of Joseph Pilates' work with the use of the Reformer. The purpose of the exercises will be revisited to help deepen our understanding of the repertoire and its application to individuals' needs. Time will be taken to look at the placement of the body on the apparatus - paying attention to the precise movements within each exercise, the impact of the breath and the quality of the movement.
Hana will demonstrate how to use your hands to guide and encourage a responsive elongation of the musculature in order to improve the movement of the whole structure and with a particular focus on the effect of the breath. How to adapt and modify exercises for different body types, physical limitations and postures will be explored. A constant thread throughout the workshop will be how to create a sound support structure of understanding from which we can build and progress to take a client forward into the more complex Reformer repertoire.
This ‘hands on’ workshop is a rare opportunity for studio teachers to be taught on the apparatus by Hana Jones; for us to teach, explore and experiment with one another in a respectful, fun and supportive environment - a unique experience for anyone who wants to further their own relationship with the whole body of Joseph Pilates’ work.
The influence of Hana Jones in the Pilates world is huge, not just because she has been integral in the training of many teachers in this country and abroad, but also because her work resonates with so many of us today. Her teaching always comes from the same place, deeply rooted in the fundamentals of the Pilates Method and out of her 35 years of experience teaching this work.- Previous Workshop Attendee
