Track 2 – Workshop 1B
Call it Choreography: The Reformer
This workshop will offer ideas to improve the quality of your reformer workouts for both private and group sessions. The tutorial scope of a simple exercise will be magnified through three channels: choreography, complexity, and cueing. Students will identify the primary and secondary intent of the move; extend the life of the choreography by altering resistance, timing, endurance, and difficulty; and pair the visualization and movement pattern with judiciously selected vocabulary. Anatomical references will be made to promote proper initiation and efficient lines of movement. Specific attention will focus on breath, coordination, and flow.
Equipment: Reformer with sitting box
Appropriate for: Reformer instructors
