STOTT PILATES® Advanced Matwork, from Then to Now

Join us on a journey from the original method developed by Joseph Pilates to the contemporary approach of STOTT PILATES®, and how the Five Basic Principles and foundations of anatomy and biomechanics have adapted them. Explore how the exercise order, focus and performance has advanced and continues to develop as we learn more about optimal movement.

Halo® Training Instructor Foundation Course
ACE Approved (CECs 0.7)

Designed for fitness instructors teaching group classes and individual clients, this is a complete training program that allows instructors to manipulate exercise attributes and intensity in individual training plans. Incorporating the basic science behind core-integrated bodyweight training, the unique design of the Halo® Trainer Plus and the use of a Stability Ball and additional small props gives fitness trainers extensive and highly applicable tools.

Halo® Training Applications for Global Stability
ACE Approved (CECs 0.6)

Explore how the Halo® Trainer Plus can be used to take advantage of movement patterns that recruit muscles of the global stabilizer system. This workshop focuses on the neuromuscular training of multiple muscles groups and motor patterns through anatomical linkages that unite the muscles of both the pelvic girdle and shoulder girdle to the spine resulting in improved functional outcomes.
