We’re delighted to announce that Rebekah Rotstein is returning to Dublin in July 2016 for a weekend of workshops and a masterclass that is open to everyone, clients included.
Workshop 1: Teaching Clinic
This teaching clinic is an opportunity for instructors to experience the key concepts of Rebekah’s work in action. No preconceptions beforehand, no knowledge of what’s about to enter the studio. Kind of like reality TV where nothing is filtered!
Participants will have the chance to explore key concepts of Pilates and other movement systems in the way that Rebekah applies them. Then participants will watch these concepts in action while Rebekah teaches three sessions, bringing the studies to life in a real-time environment. There will be time for Q&A after each session.
Masterclass 1 – Open to Clients and Instructors
Rebekah will teach an intermediate masterclass for us on Friday evening. It will include new creative movements to add into your classes or home practice. She will show you how to improve your flexibility and address those nagging aches and pains. Experience a Pilates workout with fun spiraling motions to invigorate and tone your body while freeing your back, hips, shoulders and neck. Open to instructors and clients alike, we’re really looking forward to this class.
Workshop 2: The Lumbo-Pelvic Perspective
The lumbo-pelvic region is the gateway between the upper and lower body and serves as our center of gravity. The area transmits force and power in movement but also is a common site of dysfunction.
This workshop will explore the region from a global view, using the fascia as a conduit to examine the bones and muscles as well as the nerves and organs, but also as through a micro-lens to highlight the interplay of the various joints and their mechanics in movement.
Discover techniques to assess dysfunction and alleviate symptoms of pain and discomfort. Learn simple exercises that apply to Pilates, yoga and personal training to fine-tune your skillset and assist your clients.
Masterclass 2 Foam Roller – Open to Clients and Instructors
We’ve just added a second master class this weekend with Rebekah due to popular demand. This 60 minute class will include foam roller techniques to mobilise the neck, shoulders and trunk. It’s on Saturday at 5:30, immediately after her Lumbo Pelvic Perspective Workshop.
Open to clients and instructors alike – we hope to see you there!
Workshop 3: Standing & Spiralling Full Body Integration
Basic human movement is three-dimensional and spiralling in nature. This workshop demonstrates how, beginning with the feet and ankles and integrating the entire kinetic chain of the body through to the hands and head, via the fascia network.
Identify functional global movement patterns and re-establish the natural mechanics of the feet and ankles. Discover how the spirals can facilitate daily activities, correct faulty movement patterns and maximise mobility and minimise injury. Learn fun energising new techniques and exercises to implement immediately, along with quick fixes to alleviate common ailments.
This invigorating, enlightening – and entertaining- workshop is open to movement and exercise professionals of all disciplines.
