If restricted mobility does not permit a client to lie on the floor or other equipment, this workshop, developed by the Merrithew™ team, shows exercise variations in an upright, seated position. In addition to exploring movements incorporating the gentle resistance of the STOTT PILATES® Flex-Band® exerciser, participants work through a number of exercises performed in a supported standing position to help develop balance and coordination.
- Apply the STOTT PILATES Five Basic Principles of stabilization to select seated exercises.
- Lean supported movements in a standing position focusing on proper form.
- Understand why STOTT PILATES is beneficial in cases of restricted mobility and how to modify for this clientele.
- Learn cues and corrections for safety and effectiveness.
