STOTT PILATES WORKSHOPS AT UXBRIDGE PILATES
We are very happy to announce the lineup for Uxbridge Pilates’
AUTUMN ONLINE WORKSHOP SERIES!
Friday, October 30 Matwork Interval Training, Level 1 7:30 – 9:30am
Kick your metabolism into high gear with this intensive, energy-boosting Mat workout, developed by the Merrithew™ team. Take advantage of the body’s natural ability to burn fat throughout the day and also help chase away stress while building overall strength and endurance. Selected STOTT PILATES® Matwork exercises are combined in innovative and powerful sequences that gradually increase in rhythm, pace and intensity to help rev up the body’s fat-burning capacity.
Monday, November 2 Armchair Pilates Plus 9:00 – 11:00am
(Note: This workshop requires a Flex-Band®)
Learn how to adapt the STOTT PILATES® principles and exercises to a client with restricted mobility that is better suited to working in a seated position. A variety of exercises, developed by the Merrithew™ team, are discussed, demonstrated and experienced that work both the core and peripheral muscle groups while keeping the body upright. The Flex-Band® exerciser is incorporated into many of the exercises, to provide added light resistance and add variety to this full-body program.
Monday, November 9 Armchair Pilates with Weights 9:00 – 11:00am
(Note: This workshop requires a pair of Soft Dumbbells, Mini Handweights or other small handweights)
When working with older exercisers, programs need to be adjusted, sometimes dramatically, to accommodate those with limited mobility. Using light hand-held weights, this workout, developed by the Merrithew™ team, targets core strength and stability along with peripheral joint mobilization all from a seated position. Exercises are designed to re-connect mind and body, target and improve the functional capacity of the older participant through graded strength training, proprioceptive awareness and joint range of motion, as well as bring about a general sense of well-being. Discover how to maximize functional health, balance, coordination and flexibility in a workout aimed at keeping the body moving.
Friday, November 13 Foam Roller™ Level 1 7:30 – 9:30am
(NOTE: This workshop requires a 36′ Foam Roller)
Incorporate a Foam Roller™ into exercises adapted from both the Matwork and Reformer repertoire for a workout that challenges balance and coordination. With this workshop, developed by the Merrithew™ team, you will learn how the roller targets core stabilizers, cues alignment and challenges strength through the periphery and core. Discover how to use cues and corrections to maintain safety and effectiveness in all workouts.
Friday, November 13 Foam Roller™ Level 2 9:30 – 11:30am
(NOTE: This workshop requires a 36′ Foam Roller)
Learn to add further challenge to any Foam Roller™ routine with this energizing workshop, developed by the Merrithew™ team. Using the Roller’s unstable nature and reducing the base of support increases the challenge to strength and balance and while motivating clients and classes alike. Learn to create programs with added intensity and variety while maintaining safety and cueing effectively.
Friday, November 20 Athletic Conditioning on the Mat 7:30 – 9:30 am
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.
ALL WORKSHOPS ARE $135* (PLUS TAX)
