Friday, October 18
3:15–4:30 PM STOTT PILATES® Athletic Conditioning on Stability Cushions
Discover a new and intensive core training workout, developed by the Merrithew® team, featuring the Stability Cushions™. Controlling instability with a pair of cushioned disks requires activation of the stabilizing muscles of the torso, shoulders, and hips. Exercises are designed to elicit greater proprioceptive awareness and recruit the deep support systems of the whole body while developing greater coordination and control. Discover a new facet to Matwork programs that increase body awareness and core stability in movements that bridge the gap between simple core training routines and functional movement patterns necessary in athletic conditioning.
Saturday, October 19
4:15–5:30 PM STOTT PILATES® Essential Matwork on Stability Cushions
Traditional Essential-level exercises, developed by the Merrithew® team, are presented in a whole new way with the addition of a pair of cushioned disks. The inherent instability of the inflated disks requires even greater activation of the stabilizing muscles of the torso, shoulders and hips. Used alone or together, the Stability Cushions elicit greater proprioceptive awareness and recruit the deep support systems of the whole body while developing greater coordination and control. Discover a new way to challenge your clients and take everyday Essential Matwork to another level, providing more variety for your clients and more fun for everyone.
Sunday, October 20
8:30–10:00 AM STOTT PILATES® Athletic Conditioning on the Mat
This workshop developed by the Merrithew® team demonstrates dynamic movement sequences that take full advantage of the body’s own weight and gravity. These moves are guaranteed to develop ultimate strength and stability particularly through the core, including the lumbo-pelvic region. The workshop features an intense abdominal series, sequences with rotation and mobilization as well as a section dedicated to front and side planks.
1:00–2:15 PM STOTT PILATES® Personal Training Matwork
Specific tools and information are needed to better train Pilates clients one-on-one. Learn how to cue and correct effectively to help clients achieve optimal form. With this workshop, developed by the Merrithew® team, discover how to observe clients to see if they are stable, correctly aligned, moving fluidly and efficiently, using the right amount of resistance or using correct equipment adjustments. See how to modify exercises using starting position, range of motion, preparations, and varying dynamics to make the exercises even more appropriate for each client.
