Open To Everyone

 
THE MELT METHOD® WORKSHOP
4-6pm Saturday 18th August, 2018

Back by popular demand after our last two MELT Workshops sold out…

The MELT Method® (MELT®) is a simple system of  myofascial release techniques that you can use yourself at home or incorporate into your Pilates lessons. Just 10 minutes of MELT three times a week is all you need to begin reducing the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living.


MELT reduces neck & shoulder tension as well as stiffness in your back and other joints of the body. It will help you stay healthy, youthful and active for a lifetime. 


Pain-free living requires a balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. MELT directly addresses these two systems of your body so they can work together to provide support and optimise your mind-body communication for efficient movement. 


The ultimate goal of MELT is to improve your body’s ability to restore, balance and repair itself, producing remarkable, lasting changes in how you hold yourself and move. MELT offers natural pain relief, allowing you to address the true cause of chronic pain, not just mask the symptoms.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn some fantastic self care strategies. 


Workshop cost includes a technique handbook. All materials required (soft foam rollers and balls) will be provided for use in class. The studio will also have materials for sale if you are interested in having a kit for home use. The cost of the kits is not included in the cost of the class.


Cost $45. Spaces are strictly limited and bookings are essential. Click here to secure your place now.

PILATES FROM THE GROUND UP: PUTTING YOUR FEET FIRST

1-3pm Saturday 26th May, 2018


Join Joanne Bezzina (visiting Pilates Anytime instructor and Polestar Pilates educator) for this inspiring 2 hour workshop focused on creating a balanced, well rounded Pilates session from the perspective of the feet.

As Pilates instructors our role is to engage with our clients as a whole person. It can be challenging to maintain this approach when the client’s attention is drawn to one specific body part or goal. Therefore, in this workshop we will use our connection through the feet but work the body in all planes for a whole body experience.

The workshop is best suited to instructors working in the studio/rehab environment and has been submitted for PDPs with the Pilates Alliance of Australasia (expected PDP allocation is 2 points).

THE SUCCESSFUL BUILD UP: MASTERING PROGRESSION WITHIN A LESSON

How can you safely help your clients achieve advanced (and often daunting) exercises in the Pilates studio environment?

In this 2 hour workshop, visiting Polestar educator and Pilates Anytime instructor Joanne Bezzina will show you how to program sessions building towards the mastery of specific exercise goals.

She'll demonstrate the process using two challenging studio exercises (grasshopper on the ladder barrel/spine corrector and dolphin on the trapeze table). 


Learn how to build into these advanced moves over the course of a lesson, choosing just the right exercises so your client's body feels prepared but not exhausted.

UNLOCKING SPINE EXTENSION

2-4pm Saturday 21st July, 2018


A coaching session for Pilates teachers, trainees and experienced practitioners wanting to take their knowledge to a deeper level.

Pilates students (and teachers) often struggle to achieve good segmental movement and core control in spine extension. Ironically, many of the cues we use in an attempt to facilitate control in extension inhibit efficient movement and make the situation worse. 

This session will benefit you if you're frustrated by challenges with your own extension or who have clients whose spines simply don't budge. 

Learn effective cueing and programming approaches to facilitate proper extension while unlearning habits you may have picked up which restrict proper movement. 

Cost $45. Spaces are strictly limited and bookings are essential. Click here to secure your place now. 

MANAGEMENT OF KNEE PATHOLOGIES IN THE PILATES ENVIRONMENT

1-5pm Sunday 26th August, 2018

Enhance your understanding of proper tracking and muscle recruitment around the knee, refine tactile and verbal cues to promote ideal movement and learn a selection of useful and effective Pilates-based exercises for knee rehabilitation. You’ll leave this workshop with increased confidence and multiple new tools for managing common knee conditions.

This workshop has been submitted for PDPs with the Pilates Alliance of Australasia (expected PDP allocation is 4 points). 

Cost $200. Spaces are strictly limited & bookings are essential. Click here to secure your place now.
