WORKSHOP 2 - Classical 'Strip-Back' The Swan Dive (120 mins)

Welcome to my monthly two hour Classical Pilates Workshop which was live-streamed on Saturday 18th April 2020 via Skype & now available for you to download once purchased, & view/practise as many times as you wish.

This Workshop has been running at Hassocks Sports Centre, Sussex UK, for Instructors for the past 15 months, & each month I take one exercise from the Classical Pilates Matwork Repertoire in the order that it was set, I strip it back & rebuild to accommodate all levels.

Month 1 was the Hundred, & this month we have reached 'Swan Dive', an advanced, albeit very accessible back extension exercise, once it has been broken down into stages.

The format for this two hour workshop is as follows:

  • We begin in Standing to find our balance & centre
  • We focus on the relationship of the pelvis, spine & shoulder girdle with the all important feet, as this relationship is integral to the Classical Work on the mat
  • We work some of the Classical exercises in Standing
  • Transition to the mat
  • Connect with our mat via release, the breath, & the genius two way opposing energy of pilates opposition, & begin to work with the Powerhouse
  • We are then ready to work with the Swan Dive, find what we need to prep the body for back extension, & then work together to build the exercise in stages, & look at some variations too
  • Finally we work a short fully instructed whole body Classical Flow together, including the work of Swan Dive, but being sure to move the body as one fully integrated whole

I so hope you enjoy & find this time helpful, if you have any questions or would like to delve further into this phenomenal Pilates Method, then do join me at one of my weekly online Classical Classes, or come receive some Instructor Mentoring & train with me 1:1 via Skype.

All of these options are available worldwide, please see full details on my website
