Weekday Workshops – Fall Focus


a Strong



As summer wanes, the days become blisteringly hot, and my patience with my already bored kids begins to unwind, I begin to look forward to cooler days, the color of autumn leaves, the aroma of pumpkin spice and the shiny new school supplies that represent the fall.

A new school year, a fresh start and usually a review of the basics to prepare for the new work ahead.


A strong foundation is essential to building anything, whether it’s a home, a new concept in math, or the one-arm snake and twist on the Reformer. 

In the spirit of the new school year, we’re going back to basics with a series of three workshops;

Pre-Pilates, Classical Pilates Foundations, & Extensions


Does this sound like you?

  • You feel stalled on some of the advanced or super-advanced exercises.
  • You’re struggling to construct a lesson for a new student?
  • You’re looking for a deeper understanding of the Pilates system so that you can get even better results for your clients
  • You have older students, or focus on injuries and are stumped on how to get them safely up to the basic level.

Imagine how good it would feel to have all your questions answered, be able to put a concise lesson together on the fly, or finally breakthrough the blocks in your own practice.

You’re a brilliant teacher and you’re on a mission to help your students improve their health and their lives.  Whether you’re a new teacher starting out or a seasoned veteran with a decade or more of teaching experience, going back to basics will give you a fresh perspective on the Pilates system, a great review of the fundamentals and a few new tools to take back to your students.

The Workshops


In Pre- Pilates you will learn:

  • Pre-Pilates exercises that build strength, stability, and awareness
  • Exercises to build connection in the back and lower body
  • Who needs pre-Pilates and when to move beyond it into the fundamentals
  • And, how to breakdown the fundamental exercises to make them more accessible to students just starting out.

Classical Pilates Foundations

In Classical Pilates Foundations you will:

  • Review the fundamental exercises on all apparatus
  • Explore the connections among the exercises

*** If you’re time zone challenged like I am, check out world time buddy – it’s been a lifesaver. 

When you put all the pieces together you’ll take the confusion and overwhelm out of teaching.  Your lessons will become more joyful, your practice will soar and you’ll be able to make a bigger difference in the lives of your students and your own.  Everybody Wins! 

Workshops are offered as live-streamed online courses, (but if you want to visit me in person, we can certainly arrange that) and I’ve limited class size to twelve students so you’ll get the individual attention you deserve and each meeting is ninety minutes so you can fit the workshop into your busy schedule.

Each workshop is recorded and you’ll receive a copy of the video to keep AND all four workshops are pending approval for PMA CEC credit.
