Powerhouse of the Upper Girdle

Presenter: Rael Isacowitz

Subtitled “Shoulder mechanics, function and the Pilates repertoire,” this workshop is an upper girdle extravaganza! Immaculate control and correct shoulder mechanics are essential in Pilates, particularly when performing the higher-level work. The workshop focuses on understanding and implementing correct shoulder mechanics, both while performing the Pilates repertoire and in everyday activities. Shoulder- related problems are among the most frequently encountered among clients, and shoulder-related cues are among the most common given when teaching. Focusing on the evolution of approach to this region of the body, this subject needs to be addressed and understood by every Pilates teacher.

This workshop is approved by the PMA for 11 CECs.
