From the Feet + Before the Hundreds
From the Feet
The health of our feet is critically important, yet rarely discussed. Blossom will share the techniques she has curated over the years to strengthen, realign and stretch the feet. The movements come from her own teaching experience, Kathy Grant and other Pilates teachers.
In this workshop, you will see how the feet are the structural foundation for our knees and hips. We will use our eyes, hands, balls, towels and pads to connect to the feet while investigating their role in balance and strength.
We will also examine how the feet play a role in traditional Pilates exercises on equipment like the Reformer, Wunda Chair, Cadillac and Barrels in addition to learning strategies for how to better incorporate the feet into your everyday Pilates teaching
Before the Hundreds
Blossom assisted Kathy Grant's matwork class at NYU for 10 years. In that class, Kathy developed a vocabulary of warm-up exercises that came before starting the traditional Pilates matwork. Before the Hundreds are the building blocks to doing the traditional Pilates vocabulary. This is the heart of Kathy's work.
The exercises have a huge stylistic range, but can be easily assimilated into your teaching. Before the Hundreds includes warm-up movements that will mobilize, deeply strengthen your abdominals and enhance your body awareness. After this workshop, you will have a new toolkit to get in tune with your body.
