About the Event
This workshop series provides an introduction to the foundations of healthy movement and alignment with Pilates instructor and movement educator Rosalind Moore. No Pilates experience is necessary as we will consider movement from the ground up and offer an appropriate challenge for every body, whether you are managing an injury or looking to improve your athletic performance.
Each 90-minute workshop will begin with a discussion of basic anatomy, common injuries and dysfunction, as well as strategies to navigate daily life and exercise with greater efficiency and less pain. The discussion will be followed by an hour-long movement class grounded in the Pilates method in which we develop our ability to assess and improve our own biomechanics and alignment while challenging strength, stamina, and range of motion.
Each session can be taken individually or as a series; the material covered will be specific to each topic with common themes throughout.
Part I: Fundamentals of Spinal and Pelvic StabilityChronic pain and instability in the hips, pelvis and low back can create significant disruptions to our daily life. In this workshop we will dive deeper into the causes as well as the resolutions for pain in these areas. The building blocks of spinal and pelvic anatomy and physiology will be explained and considered. The class will empower you to connect to and activate the deep core as well as the muscles supporting the pelvis and legs.
Part II: Integrated Shoulder StrengthIssues in the shoulder and neck region are common and can arise from poor mechanics in our daily activities, as well as from overuse in exercise and sports. In this workshop we will explore basic anatomy of the shoulder joints and the connections between breathing, core control and healthy shoulder mechanics. Class will challenge you to balance spinal mobility with shoulder stability while improving your ability to move with greater strength, awareness, and precision through the arms.
