This workshop, created by the Merrithew® team, explores the integration of fascial connections in STOTT PILATES® training. Learn to use the Stability Barrel to support full-range, multidimensional movements that unlock the body’s potential as a system of movement. When inverted, the Stability Barrel can sustain full body weight, to target balance and control. The padded gentle curve on the opposing side provides a platform for support and proprioception and allows for preparatory counter-movements in full-body, flowing sequences. With a focus on multiplanar form and function, this programming helps create deeper mental focus and the concentration needed to develop core strength, increase flexibility, and achieve greater balance and kinesthetic awareness.
