In this workshop, participants experience a dynamic warm-up, combining multi-planar functional movement patterns reinforced by the STOTT PILATES Basic Biomechanical Principles and the Merrithew Fascial Movement Variables. Progressing from the STOTT PILATES Foundational Movement Assessment learned in Part A of this series. A wide variety of props is introduced, including the Foam Cushion C, Stability Barrel, Flex-Band® and Toning Balls™, to enhance a client’s movement quality and address individual movement default strategies. Floor-based exercises follow that include interdisciplinary approaches designed to tackle these common faulty patterns and increase sensory awareness.
- Review the movement assessment explorations from Part A and the common movement default strategies which may hinder a client’s quality of movement including mobility, dynamic stability & sensory awareness
- Discover how the use of props improves both muscle firing patterns and increases sensory awareness
- Experience exercises that combine the STOTT PILATES Basic Biomechanical Principles and the Merrithew Fascial Movement Variables to improve overall movement quality and function
- Understand how a variety of interdisciplinary concepts or exercise modalities can be applied to any client’s current program
