Workshop for the Movement Nerd

Professional development and nerdery

together with other body nerds.

Are you ready to immerse yourself in a specific area of the body together with like-minded pilates teachers?

You will get exactly this opportunity in Workshop for the Movement Nerd.

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

  • the body is design
  • the body and the mind communicate
  • 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.

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.

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.

Birthe Brosolat - movement educator

Move with ease & joy

Your teacher ...

The workshop will be taught by Birthe Brosolat.

Birthe has taught movement for more than 35 years, first gymnastics, ballet and modern dance and since 2008 pilates. She is certified from Body Control Pilates in London in matwork and studio equipment on all levels. Birthe is also part of the Body Control Pilates’ teacher trainer team in Scandinavia.

She is also a certified Franklin Method Movement Educator. In Denmark, she is the only person out of 2 which are qualified in the method.

In her classes, Birthe focuses on creating awareness about how

  • we move, and if necessary, changing the way we move.
  • how our body is designed & how the body and the mind communicate
  • how our thoughts influence how we move.

The goal is to have a flexible mind in a flexible body throughout your life experiencing movement as a joyful activity.

She likes to combine her knowledge of pilates and The Franklin Method with insights from other methods & disciplines, e.g. fascia training and neuro science. She shares those insights in workshops, courses, classes and privates both in Denmark and abroad in an easy to understand language.
