About The Workshop

Joseph Pilates used his body to provide resistance for his clients. According to Kathy Grant, creating equipment was at least in part motivated by the need to spare his own body.

Carola Trier’s teaching encompassed partnering to facilitate learning the essence of an exercise. Carola used to say, “FEEL your body. EXPERIENCE the movement. “

Understanding the how and why of resistance.  And why the resistance is presented through extension springs is the pre-requisite to properly use Pilates equipment. In this workshop we will work with partners to identify particular manual skills that will translate to optimal use of springs on Pilates equipment.
