Excel Pilates Annapolis
A Day of Workshops, Discussion & Sessions
Blossom Leilani Crawford
SUNDAY, MAY 31, 2015
Regristration for this event will open mid-March.
9:00 - 12:00 p.m.
Matwork is wonderful because it is the power of Pilates movements and the only thing you need is your body. We will look at Mr. Pilates' "Return to Life" Matwork repertory and order and investigate the purpose and goal of each exercise. In this workshop you will learn skills that can be used to enhance your Pilates teaching on and off Pilates equipment and in your own movement practice.
This class with be a compilation of Blossom's influences- Kathy Grant's wonderful quirky yet potent images and "classical" Pilates vocabulary from her training with Romana Kryzanowska. Most of all, she will share fun cues and sequences from her own 15 years of mat class teaching to groups large and small from different movement backgrounds.
Get ready to move and reboot your perspective on the Matwork.
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Bring your own brown bag lunch and participate in discussion with Blossom
1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Wunda Chair Wonders
In this Wunda Chair workshop Blossom will lead an exploration of the traditional exercises of the Wunda Chair. This is not a workshop of dazzling new choreography or tricks. Rather we will look at the classical movements of the Wunda Chair and take away flourishes to highlight the simple yet difficult movements on the Chair. Also Blossom will gently (and not so gently) remind instructors of some of the exercises that are completely accessible, but sometimes left off the to do list.
4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
