The Pilates On The Run Practitioner Series: Using the Pilates method to redefine our concept of what running can be

***This is a professional development workshop series for Pilates Teachers, movement therapists and health care professionals.

Running is an innate and natural movement pattern that can be as be as freeing to the body as Pilates. In this studio series we use the Pilates method to teach us how to run in a way that develops inner power, optimum alignment and refined body awareness.

This workshop series will provide you with the opportunity to:

Become familiar with ways of doing and teaching movement that engage with the intelligence of your organ, fluid, sensory, vestibular and nervous systems, first in Pilates and then through walking and into running.

Use the Pilates method to become familiar with skills and movement qualities that are key to supported and integrated walking, running and sprinting form

Develop cues, imagery and teaching skills to seamlessly transfer these movement qualities into running;

This series of four workshops is presented in two key parts, over two weekends to enable participants time to practice between the two sections of the course. However, each session is complete in its own right and, for those with a keen interest in a particular session, each workshop can be booked as a stand alone workshop.

Workshop 1: Saturday June 15th12noon – 4pm

Systems of Support: Sensing, sequencing and initiating movement through your organsfor greater rhythm, energy and flow on the run.

In this workshop we use the Pilates repertoire to understand the key role that our organs play in creating whole body integration and deep abdominal support. We will then learn how to use our legs to provide the moment to moment support necessary to freeing up the energy of our organ systems to create powerful flowing movement on the run.

Workshop 2: Sunday June 16th 10am – 2pm

Lungs of Life: Taking the lightness, freedom and support of a full-bodied Pilates breath into running.

This workshop explores how the organs and processes of respiration both support and are supported by the action of running. We use Jo’s equipment and choreography to teach us how to time and sequence our movement patterns to facilitate greater respiratory volume. We then identify ways to transfer this way of moving into running so that -- much like Pilates -- running can become an act of respiratory support.

***YOU CAN BOOK WORKSHOPS 1 & 2 ON THIS PAGE: $388.90 FOR THE TWO WORKSHOPS. CHOOSE THE JUNE 15th TICKET DATE. Single workshop bookings can be made from a separate page.

Workshop 3: Saturday August 24th 12noon – 4pm

Palm as Portal: Tapping into the receptivity of our palms for upper body lift and deep abdominal support on the run.

In this workshop we use the Pilates repertoire to highlight the proprioceptive potency of our palms. We will refine the neurological connection to our palms to enhance the organization of our upper body in a way that is simple to apply on the run. We will learn how to use our connection to our palms tofacilitate a well-aligned arm drive, upper and lower body balance and deep abdominal support on the run.

Workshop 4: Sunday June 16th 10am – 2pm

Freedom and Flow: Moving your legs with your centre to cover more distance with less tension.

In this workshop we usethe spring to teach us how to direct the work of running into the centre of the body. We will use the equipment to give us a clear sense of how it feels to move our legs from our centre in running, and to transfer forces from our feet to our centre. The goal is to take the centred movement of our legs from Pilates into running so that we can increase our athletic capability with minimal stress to the body.

***YOU CAN BOOK WORKSHOPS 3 & 4 ON THIS PAGE: $388.90 FOR THE TWO WORKSHOPS. CHOOSE THE AUGUAT 24TH TICKET DATE. Single workshop bookings can be made from a separate page.

This 4 part series is designed to be experienced in sequential order. The workshop series is presented in two key parts, over two weekends to enable participants time to practice between the two sections of the course. However, each session is complete in its own right and, for those with a keen interest in a particular session, each workshop can be booked as a stand alone workshop.

By exploring new ways of sensing and communicating with the body, we add to the potency of what we teach. We also enhance our ability to help ourselves and our clients to translate the language of Pilates into those realms where we are most challenged to find balance. Running is an outstanding example of this and a powerful medium for challenging our capacity to embody the method with a richness and sensitivity that can support us when we need it most.

In this workshop series you will experience the method in a rich and sensorial way to find the most simple and effective ways to unlock its tremendous potency for creating balance on the run..... and in life!

With an emphasis on whole bodied movement, you will gain a clear understanding of how to undo a runner’s propensity to over-push with their legs and underutilize all other body systems. In so doing you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to transfer the alignment, power and flow of Pilates into challenging situations with confidence and clarity.
