Set Up for Success - "The Set-Up" (Part 1: Reformer)

Presenter: Ofie Dates

"I used to say the set up is 90% of the success of an exercise--I am now upgrading it to 100%! If the set up is not correct the exercise simply cannot be done properly. I am not only speaking of the anatomy and physiology of the exercise, but also the intention of the exercise and of the system itself."
- Rael Isacowitz (November 2018)

In this workshop we will focus on "The Set-Up!" With special attention to correct placement of the body in the initiation of each exercise it guarantees proper execution and a successful outcome for each exercise! Joseph H. Pilates laid a foundation that we must treasure and protect. BASI Pilates endeavors to preserve the legacy of Joseph H. Pilates. As BASI warriors under the direction and guidance of Rael Isacowitz (founder of BASI), we must continue the legacy with passion, precision, efficiency, and flow!

We will review the Pre-Set-Up and Set-Up of each exercise on the Reformer for the Foundation & Graduate Programs. The focus will be on the precision, placement, stabilization, and correct starting position to ensure success, precision, and efficiency for each exercise!

This workshop is approved by the PMA for 5 CECs.
