Any trainer will realise the benefits of taking mums-to-be from traditional Matwork variations to select exercise modifications on the Reformer. Using current exercise guidelines provided by the ACOG and bearing in mind common anatomical and physiological changes, appropriate STOTT PILATES® exercise adaptations will be explored using the Reformer in innovative and beneficial ways.
This mindful movement workout, created by the Merrithew Health & Fitness™ team, is based on the foundation that proper breathing is the key to a healthy, nourished and vibrant body.
Learn programming to improve the strength and stability of hip, knee and ankle joints in both supine and standing positions in this workshop developed by the Merrithew Health & Fitness™ team.
Fitness and Pilates instructors meet a variety of clients who are restricted in their movements. During this workshop you will learn how to modify Pilates exercises in a range of intensity levels to create workouts that achieve the primary goal of limiting flexion, while providing an effective full-body workout.
This workshop looks at enhancing the quality of movement in a series of flowing sequences, by focusing on breathing. You can use this Mat workout to energise the body and calm the mind.
Learn to use the various reformer components and accessories to intensify reformer repertoire and provide a stimulating workout for athletes, dancers, and highly conditioned clients. Exercises in the Advanced repertoire require greater strength, stability and flexibility.
This innovative and upbeat Mat-based workshop features small pieces of equipment, including the Flex-Band® exerciser, Fitness Circle® resistance ring and Toning Balls™. You will learn to create a full-body workout that focuses on strength and agility. Explore new alternatives to standard exercises with the added peripheral resistance of all three props.
Explore the anatomy and biomechanics involved in the normal healthy functioning of the shoulder girdle, discuss some of the interruptions that can occur, and exercise progressions to restore optimal function.
Firstly, available ROM and typical movement patterns of the shoulder girdle are broken down, analysing scapular movement, humeral movement and relevant muscular action. Next, common abnormal or dysfunctional movement patterns are addressed. And finally, exercise progressions to rebuild normal muscle action and movement patterning are covered, as well as shoulder girdle exercises that can challenge and prepare for specific activities and enhance performance.
Use the dynamic resistance of the Flex-Band® to isolate and tone peripheral muscle groups, while assisting core stabilization.
