Post-Natal and Abdominal Reconditioning

Description

​Post-natal core training is not only about regaining a flat tummy for appearance sake. The process is often complicated by diastasis recti—thinning of the tissue between the right and left sides of the rectus abdominis muscle—a condition that often contributes to lower back, shoulder and pelvic floor issues, both during and after pregnancy. The good news is that we can help restore the integrity of the rectus abdominis through specialized exercise-based intervention. This workshop combines the latest research on diastasis recti and exercise. The focus is on the causes and how to restore the core with a Pilates-based conditioning program, modified to the needs of post-natal women with diastasis recti. You will leave with a clear understanding of what the condition, how to identify it, and how to help clients work with and recover from it.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn to identify and test for diastasis recti
  • Explore the importance of breath work and a step-by-step protocol to retrain it for restoration of strength and resilience to the body's core
  • Learn pivotal movements and exercises to recondition the abdominal wall when diastasis recti is present

Post-Rehab Protocols: Hip and Knee

Description

Starting with a review of the anatomy of the hip and knee plus all the muscles that wind around the pelvis, thigh and hip, we move on to examine which muscles are local and global and how to apply this information to movement. From there we consider subjective and objective evaluations of all the compartments of the lower limb. A major focus is two main functions of the lower limb: sit to stand and gait—how to assess these key functions and what to do to improve their execution. We also spend time on functional movement in general and common conditions of the lower limb—pelvis, hip and knee—as well as Sahrmann’s 11 movement impairments of the pelvis and hips. We conclude with a plan of action to restore optimal function and movement.

The overall objective is to help teachers see systemic patterns for movement in the body, followed by a review of key exercises to target each one.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the links and history of the myofascial lines and how they inform our current context
  • Learn to see the human body in terms of several different myofascial perspectives
  • Practise and apply moving along the myofascial lines from different schools
  • Compare and understand the differences between myofascial and locomotor lines of movement

Core Integrity

Description

We all know that a strong core is key to optimal function, balance and equilibrium. But how can we best facilitate effective core control and still create programs that appeal to average people who can't connect to subtle movements and deep inner muscles? In this workshop, we take a global approach to the concept of core and analyze both the inner and outer cylinders of support. These core systems help produce support and movement for the entire body as they criss-cross and spiral the torso. In-depth analysis is followed by observation and self-practice using specific exercises for each layer. You leave with a clear idea of how to help people connect to the different parts of their core.

NOTE: Core Integrity is a Continuing Education workshop. It is also included in the Pilates Level 1: Mat program.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover what the inner unit of support is and how it functions
  • Learn what the outer unit of support is and how it functions
  • Practise exercises for both inner and outer units for optimal core control
  • Explore ways to develop a sequence of exercises based on the core systems
