Workshop 1263: Pilates ABCs

3 hr 20 min
What You'll Need:
Mat, Cadillac
The concepts and patterns of movements designed to realign and balance the body are the common thread in all the exercises and variations. Clara Pilates called them the A-B-Cs while others call them “Pre-Pilates”, “Before the Hundred”, “Fundamentals”, “Building blocks”, etc. These fundamental exercises are helpful in teaching your clients the movement patterns and alignment needed to experience the underlying concepts and principles of the method and exercises. They are also useful for clients with physical limitations, to prepare them for more challenging work.

Objectives

- Learn ways to improve a client's understanding of their body and the Pilates method

- Learn ways to use different props to achieve correct placement and movements

- Learn tips to help a client lengthen the spine and release the neck in a way they can understand

Kathleen ~ I'm sorry you are having trouble with the last chapter. I just tried it and I was able to watch it without any problems. I recommend trying our Alternate Video Player which will allow you to choose a lower video quality. If you continue to have trouble after trying this, please email us at contact@pilatesanytime.com.

With these exercises, it's not about what we're doing. It's how we're doing them that makes them effective.
