Some of our participants share their experience:

"I realized that I was really focused on the exhalation and need to be more focused on the inhalation."

Reclaiming the Essence of Pilates

This workshop will lead you to greater clarity about the unique way the Pilates method can offer you(r students) greater benefits for your body, mind, and spirit. Through the words of Joseph Pilates himself and a review of the Pilates movement principles, Mara will engage you in a dialogue between these concepts and your own body. What can be fine-tuned in your current practice to take you to the next level in regards to power, balance, and ease?


Harness the Power of Your Breath

In Pilates, the way we breathe is not just part of the choreography of movement. Rather, it is a specific technique for gaining core strength and stability. Correct breathing triggers the muscles surrounding the ribcage and abdominal area: when we use breath well, we help our abdominals engage even more. This is why breathing is such an important part of Pilates.

Join us as we explore three-dimensional breathing, the breathing technique that is integral to Pilates. Learn how to use the breath to grow stronger and more comfortable in your own body. Like everything in Pilates, correct breathing techniques vary based on each person’s individual breathing pattern and movement goals. You will leave with an understanding of what works best for you.
