Supporting Hypermobility hypermobility

Saturday 18th of July from 13:30 – 16:30

Hypermobility is a tricky issue, with the struggle to stabilize causing frustration in both the client and teacher. In this 3 hour course for instructors we discover successful methods of assisting your hypermobile clients through fascial release & reintegration techniques, strength protocols and neuromuscular re-patterning exercises. We also learn about commonly resulting problems like myofascial pain syndrome, trigger points, faulty muscle recruitment techniques and the tendency to over-stabilize.

Shoulders Neck and Wrists: Restoring Motion and Function through Pilates Shoulder

Sunday 19th of July 10:00 – 17:00

This is a full day workshop open to instructors. The upper quarter of the body can become overtaxed in our daily lives from computers, text messaging and prolonged periods of sitting. And those of us carrying our lives in our bags throughout the day know the burden those bags can take on our bodies. Navigate the anatomy of the upper body both regionally and through layered connections to better understand the functional mechanics and where things go awry. Discover why the shoulder, neck and wrists cannot be looked at in isolation and how they relate to and affect one another from muscles and fascia to nerves and organs. Learn techniques to realign them through a variety of movement modalities including PNF techniques, neuromyofascial release and visceral mobilization. Apply your learnings to the classical Pilates choreography along with innovative exercises to incorporate into your repertoire.

Teaching Clinics Teaching Clinic

Tuesday 28th of July 09:30 – 12:30
& Tuesday 11th of August 09:30 – 12:30

These 2 x three hour teaching clinics are an opportunity for instructors to experience the key concepts of Rebekah Rotstein’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. The first part will be spent with Rebekah elaborating on her approach to the body via the lens of fascia as well as viscera, bony rhythms, muscle activation and neural input, and somatic experiential movement, including the very latest understanding from Rebekah’s recent participation at the fascia conference in Germany and her work with Gil Hedley’s cadaver program. Participants will have the chance to explore key concepts of Pilates and movement in the way that Rebekah applies them. Then participants will watch these concepts in action while Rebekah teaches three client sessions, bringing the studies to life in a real-time environment. There will be time for Q&A after each session.
