Mind Your Body
Kim Kutzner, DPT
Learn about how the brain, musculoskeletal and nervous systems interact in Contrology. Deepen your Pilates teaching or practice from a neuroscience and neuromuscular perspective. We’ll explore brain science, anatomy, and the overlap of these in Pilates.
Heart and Soul Reformer
A handpicked series of exercises we intentionally choose from Joe’s original full series. Join us as Lori presents her current Heart and Soul series chosen for the engaging, balancing and invigorating effects she finds most useful for today’s clientele.
If you have been a teacher for a while you will have figured that out most clients practice at an intermediate level. If you are looking for inspiration to start building some advanced skills for your intermediate clients (and even advanced clients) this workshop will help you close the gap. The Cadillac is a wonderful environment to safely start introducing advanced skills to your client. Victoria will walk you through progressions and skills to start building on the Cadillac to move your clients into more advanced mat, Reformer and Wunda chair exercises. You will walk away from this workshop with exercises and concepts you can start teaching and progressing your clients immediately.
Review exercises for the neck, both with and without Pilates apparatus. Learn to refine your eye, see the fine details and learn some effective images and cues that help make the most of our common neck exercises. Feel how neck exercises can help your clients with low back issues.
Apple Bottom (Hip Workshop)
Prepare and practice Pilates exercises with attention to how your legs meet your outer pelvis. Refine precision of mind and body while redefining “stretch” “strength” and “control.” Discover the power of apple bottom imagery to improve your ability to stand on the ground as well as in the air.
Practice and Play
Lori and Teresa
We will open the floor and everyone will have the opportunity to practice and play! Put all the things you’ve seen and learned throughout the day into action. Lori and Teresa will be available to review, clarify and help you settle the teachings in your minds and bodies so you can take them home with you.

Improving Thoracic Mobility on the Spine Corrector and Small Barrel
It is no secret that in the era of remote learning and work clients are spending more and more time in front of screens and the spine pays the price. This workshop addresses the impact on the Thoracic area to the function of the whole spine and is an extension of Victoria’s highly viewed Improving Thoracic Mobility Mat series on Pilatesology to the barrels. Learn how just a few skills on the barrels can improve performance of exercises like the Swan, breaststroke and even the Star. The workshop covers exercises you can teach the most basic clients and the steps to advance them into intermediate and advanced exercises.
