Classical Matwork Transitions

Sunday 24 June 2018

Classical Matwork Transitions

A full-day Pilates Masterclass workshop created especially for Pilates instructors at every stage of matwork qualification.

 

Sunday 24 June from 10am to 4pm at the Brighton Academy, Fonthill Road, Hove BN3 6HA

 

Since the classical Pilates matwork was written by Joseph Pilates, our understanding of the method has evolved.  Variations to the original classical Pilates method should be continuously explored by teachers, in order to best suit his or her individual client’s needs and physical limitations.

 

This full-day Masterclass Workshop for teachers is divided into 6 sections, each exploring various choreographic transitions used to link classical Pilates exercises:

 

  • The Classical Matwork
  • Standing
  • Supine and Semi-Supine
  • Side Lying
  • Prone
  • 4 Point Kneeling

 

The focus of the day is perfecting technique when performing the classical matwork repertoire, and using clear transitions between exercises, avoiding a ‘stop-start’ rhythm when teaching matwork classes. With the help of verbal and tactile cueing, as well as practiced transitions, Pilates teachers are better able to construct smooth and enjoyable classical matwork routines.

Yoga and Pilates at Tigmi Resort, Marrakech in conjunction with Yoga Explorers

31st May - 7th June 2014

Tucked away from the hubbub of Marrakech on the outskirts of a traditional Moroccan Berber village, Ocean Wave Pilates invites you to Tigmi, a retreat destination that will redefine your idea of relaxation. You’ll enjoy daily yoga and Pilates sessions by two the UK’s most respected instructors.

Named one of the Top 12 Ethical Hideaways, Harper’s Bazaar describes Tigmi as ‘a blissed-out haven that mixes style with substance.’ With its view of an ancient kasbah and its backdrop of snow-capped peaks you would never know Tigmi is located just outside the buzz of Marrakech. Meandering courtyard paths lead to individually designed bedrooms, complete with air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and handmade shower and body products. Locally-sourced breakfasts, lunches and three course dinners are freshly prepared daily by our resident chefs.  Full hammam and organic spa treatments are available onsite.
