Beth will be teaching a workshop on Saturday from 2-5p and a workshop on Sunday from 9a-12p at Pilates on Tour, London:
Saturday, 2-5p: Align The Spine: Connect the Flow to the Curriculum in a Reformer Class
Pilates Studios all over the country are attracting more and more individuals with a history of pathology including disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, stenosis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and joint replacements. Pilates is an attractive and popular exercise choice once physical therapy has concluded and fitness becomes a priority. How do you offer a group class that is accessible for this population and create a successful movement experience? In this workshop we will focus on developing the techniques for creating a safe and effective class incorporating flow, cueing and teaching continuity to guide post rehabilitation clients through a successful movement experience achieving fitness goals. A focus on hip disassociation, ideal form and alignment, with modifications and progressions will be covered in this course curriculum.
Sunday, 9a-12p:Hip and Knee Replacements and Pilates: Restoring Function, Strength, ROM and Stability Post Operatively
A Practitioner of Pilates may have several clients a week in their schedule with a hip or knee replacement. More than 2 million hip and knee replacements are performed worldwide, annually and that number is increasing. More then 7.5 million Americans are living with hip and knee replacements. THA (Total Hip Arthroplasty) has now become so successful that it has been referred to as “the operation of the century” and is the main surgical procedure in orthopedics. Pilates is an ideal form of low impact movements that are easily adaptable to the post-op needs of your joint replacement client. In this workshop, we will explore the foundational guidelines and protocols for ROM and restoring function for the post-op hip and knee arthroplasty client especially during that first year post-operative. We will then explore how to safely adapt the method and equipment to meet those ROM guidelines.
These workshops are appropriate for all instructors!
