Resistance Bands, Resistance Loops and The Pilates Pole

930am – 1230pm £100.00 Book Now
Find out more

Pilates Toys are a Pilates teacher’s secret weapon – adding variety, challenge, and support to almost any Pilates mat exercise – the small equipment is an indispensable teaching aid which is as applicable to the complete beginner as it is to the most advanced student.  This 3-hour workshop would suit any teacher looking to expand their Pilates repertoire. Resistance Bands can be used for a variety of strength, stretch and release work. Whether it is a new twist to an existing mat exercise or bringing some of the exercises from the studio equipment to your mat; this is one piece of equipment no Pilates teacher should be without.  The lesser known Resistance Loops are frequently under used but should not be underestimated. The loops can add a different dimension to a number of existing mat exercises as well as adding a functional slant to your classes. These are effective standalone pieces of equipment, as well as being a natural partner to the Resistance Band.  The Pilates Pole is primarily associated with the Reformer repertoire; however, it is an incredibly simple piece of equipment that can also be used very effectively on the mat. Clients love the Pole as it provides them with both support and feedback in a wide range of mat exercises across all levels. Specifically, the pole helps clients concentrate on technique and develop a much better awareness of their own alignment and connections. The pole will transform your clients as they discover opposition and learn how to correct imbalances in a way that is usually only accessible using the larger studio equipment. Teachers love the pole as it provides a unique and different experience to their clients.

Balls, More Balls & The Magic Circle

1pm – 4pm £100.00 Book Now

Pilates Toys are a Pilates teacher’s secret weapon – adding variety, challenge, and support to almost any Pilates mat exercise – the small equipment is an indispensable teaching aid which is as applicable to the complete beginner as it is to the most advanced student.  This 3-hour workshop would suit any teacher looking to expand their Pilates repertoire. The Pilates Overball has endless possibilities…. it allows clients to access a greater range of movement, challenges their stability, helps improve their understanding of some of the key techniques used in Pilates and leaves them with a welcome sense of openness. This piece of small equipment is always a favourite. Tennis and Release Balls are a simple and yet highly effective myofascial self-release tool. With release comes not only relief but increased proprioception and often improved balance. These widely available toys are an easy win for both teachers and clients alike.  The Magic Circle is a very underrated piece of equipment yet one that comes with a wide range of applications. Adding challenge and support to exercises in equal measures the magic circle can be used to strengthen as well as lengthen. It is also a great tool to help clients improve their technique and develop an awareness of deep connections within their bodies.

It’s a well-known secret that effective cueing takes a lot of experience and practice. The teacher needs to have a good understanding of the Pilates method and the human body and needs to develop a sense to how different individuals respond best to instructions in order to give an effective and well-timed cue. In this workshop, Amit shares his many years of experience in teaching clients and training teachers to help the participants improve their cueing skills. We will focus on finding the most relevant element of the movement or learning process to cue on; and then finding the most positive and effective ways to cue people for success.
