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.
Learn how to adapt the STOTT PILATES® principles and exercises to a client with restricted mobility. A variety of exercises will be demonstrated that work both the core and peripheral muscle groups while keeping the body upright.
The Stability Ball™ is the perfect tool to use with prenatal clients, and adding resistance with the Flex-Band® exerciser delivers a safe and effective workout for mothers-to-be. In this interactive seminar you will learn to apply the most current medical information, exercise guidelines and research available on pregnancy and movement when using innovative STOTT PILATES® exercise adaptations. Learn programming concepts for teaching small groups and private clients specifically in the second trimester. Discuss anatomical and physiological changes, risk factors and movement considerations and leave with strategies for building new prenatal programs as well as enhancing those already in progress.
This interactive seminar will draw upon the most current medical information, exercise guidelines, and research available on pregnancy and movement.
This hands-on workshop outlines the importance of postural analysis in programming STOTT PILATES® workouts.
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.
