Boditree Releasework :

Saturday, March 23, 2019
This 4 hour workshop focusses on the Boditree releases we have integrated into our workout design, in assisting clients to better prepare them for experiencing the Pilates Method. We will address the most common complaints of pain that clients report to us when we first meet them, and explain how Boditree releasework assists in preparing such clients for Pilates. This
workshop will leave participants with a new assortment of tools that will enrich their client’s physical experience of the work. Pilates can be very hard for someone who is suffering with pain. By integrating Boditree Releasework into your practice, your clients will have greater ease in establishing the connections needed for executing control of the classical repertoire.

Boditree modifications :

Sunday, March 24, 2019
This 4 hour workshop examines the needs of special populations who suffer from pain or restriction. Medical conditions such as MS, Parkinsons, Scoliosis, and Fibromyalgia, to name a few, often face challenges in working out without pain. By approaching the apparatus with a different perspective of the client’s needs, the work can be exceptionally meaningful and less challenging. In this workshop we will cover a variety of conditions, and then examine how the apparatus can be best adapted to responding to these needs. We then transition into exploring brain integration sequences, which evolve around the concept of full body integration. The variety of medical conditions we see each day means we must expand our approaches to how we modify for individual needs. This workshop promises to take the work to a different level, in adapting for such populations
