This workshop, developed by the Merrithew® team, uses the Twist Ball to highlight common athletic approaches and programming. The Twist Ball offers up a unique opportunity to incorporate load in both static and via swing and throwing actions that can enhance and stimulate the neuro-myofascial system. Use the Twist Ball to diversify programming, add load and to give direction and focus to movement. Workshop content is designed for healthy, conditioned participants who are eager and able to incorporate an athletic-style challenge into their Pilates practice.
