Pilates ABCs

3 hr 20 min - Workshop


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.


- 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
