Powerhouse of the Upper Girdle
Costa Mesa, CA

Presenter: Rael Isacowitz

Subtitled “Shoulder mechanics, function and the Pilates repertoire,” this workshop is an upper girdle extravaganza! Immaculate control and correct shoulder mechanics are essential in Pilates, particularly when performing the higher-level work. The workshop focuses on understanding and implementing correct shoulder mechanics, both while performing the Pilates repertoire and in everyday activities. Shoulder- related problems are among the most frequently encountered among clients, and shoulder-related cues are among the most common given when teaching. Focusing on the evolution of approach to this region of the body, this subject needs to be addressed and understood by every Pilates teacher.

    I completely loved the course

    I completely loved the course.

    My only feedback would be that it would have been useful for me to have an image for each new exercise in the manual distributed.

    When referring back (after the course) it is useful to have this image memory jog of what a particular exercise looked like. In honesty I found Sam Wood's Injury & Pathology manual easier to use for reference and repertoire review after the course - as each exercise had a photo of it 'in action'.

    Excellent. I'd like more academic study/ instruction prior to integrating movement so I really get to know the why these movements are good., why they work and to be able to understand key movements for key shoulder conditions. Rael is always exceptional so it is not a reflection on Rael at all, more a note that more time would be preferable in these advanced workshops so we get a deeper academic as well as movement knowledge that can only benefit our clients.
