Workshop for the Movement Nerd

A trip around the hip

Help your clients to

understand the movement of the pelvis and in the hip joints

prevent myofascial tension in the lumbar area and pelvis

In the workshop you ...

  • get an insight into how the pelvis moves and what might be the reason for pain in the lumbar or other areas around the pelvis.
  • learn why it is important know where the hip joint is.
  • will get inspiration for how to use the same exercise but change the focus area.
  • get tools to guide exercises in different ways depending on what you want to focus on.
  • get an insight into how to stimulate and improve the communication between the body and the mind to make the exercises more effective.
  • learn how you can incorporate your insights about the movement of the pelvis and the hip joint in your pilates classes.

 

Furthermore, we will ...

  • explore some of the muscles moving the pelvis and legs, e.g. the pelvic floor, psoas, abdominals and parts of the back muscles.
  • look at how to release myofascial tension around the pelvis and thus improve mobility - we will use our hands, small soft balls and the elastic band.
  • practice pilates ourselves - I will be teaching a pilates class in which I will include the concepts and ideas from the workshop.

 

After the workshop ...

You will have more tools and you have an insight into how you can help your clients to

  • increase mobility in the hip joint and to release and strengthen the myofascia around the pelvis
  • become more aware of how to move the pelvis to avoid tension or pain.

 

Come and join us on an exploration of how you can mobilise and strengthen the pelvis, hips and lumbar by combining pilates and The Franklin Method.

For you who …

  • is a professional movement teacher & thinks being nerdy about the body and mind is great
  • would like to gain a more in-depth understanding of how our body is designed to move
  • would like to learn to combine theory with practical experience
  • would like to spar with an experienced teacher who combines different body conditioning disciplines and methods, i.e. the communication between the mind and the body

If you are not a pilates teacher but manual therapist or professional movement teacher, you are also welcome. Please note, though, that the exercises will be targeted towards pilates classes.

 

Do you have any quesions? Please do not hesitate to contact me.

This is how it works …

In the workshop, we alternate between experiencing anatomical theory and transferring this theory to pilates exercises - more specifically exercises focusing on the pelvis and hip joint.

I will explain the anatomy in an easy to understand and visual way based on The Franklin Method. We will use the insights about the anatomy on pilates exercises from Body Control Pilates' basic matwork repertoire.

 

The extended tool kit for your clients

Overall, these workshops are NOT about getting many variations of exercises. Instead, these workshops are about understanding in more depth how

  • the body is designed
  • the body and the mind communicate with each other
  • you can take these insights and incorporate them in a pilates exercise.

This is a very powerful tool because when you understand a concept you can apply it to any exercise or movement discipline you want. This way you

  • have more ways to teach an exercise depending on your focus area
  • can spot and correct quicker which problem your client might have with an exercise.

You get an extended tool kit to help your clients.

 

Sparring & practice for you

Furthermore, you get the opportunity to develop yourself professionally and immerse yourself in your own body practice:

  • You get nerdy and spar with other pilates teachers who are also interested in professional development
  • You have the opportunity to notice with your own body how it feels to incorporate insight into the body's design with an exercise.
