– Legacy Program
This is the fourth and final phase of the Legacy Program.
Upcoming Honors programs
The underlying theme is evolution and preservation, two seemingly diametrically opposed concepts. Yet Pilates cannot continue to thrive without both. Rael delves into much of his own creations both in terms of the choreography and the equipment itself. As always, it is solidly and soundly grounded in the original works and principles of Joseph Pilates, paying homage to the founder and creator of the Pilates method.
This is a 3-day learning experience that includes 18 hours of instruction and learning.
The concepts discussed are Excercise Progression and Appropriate Level. These 2 areas go to the heart of everyday teaching. They are the primary concern of every novice teacher. It is appropriate that the Legacy Program, geared toward very seasoned teachers, would go full circle and conclude with revisiting these ever-important topics. Set, unique warm-ups on the Reformer, Cadillac, F2 Chair and Wunda Chair are taught. In addition, the Advanced and Master-level repertoire is taught on these very same pieces of apparatus.
Setting Objectives, both short term and long term, is discussed. This is an area often lacking in today’s large group class format found in many gyms and Pilates studios. It is an important concept in the BASI environment and is revisited in the Honors. Additional set warm-ups are presented and seldom seen Advanced and Master-level repertoire is taught on the Reformer, Reformer Combo, Cadillac and Wunda Chair.
The final day of the Honors addresses advanced concepts in analyzing movement such as using “energy lines” and “flow”. The most unique and original repertoire is introduced as well as some of the Master-level classic Pilates movements. At the same time, certain exercises are broken down and variations are offered for select populations. This is an exciting day as it is the wrap up of the entire Legacy Program, a program that for most people spans many years and countless hours of devoted practice.
