Track 2 – Workshop 6B
The Pelvis Spine Connection
As Pilates practitioners and teachers, we spend a fair amount of time and effort exploring and explaining the importance of good spinal articulation. In this course, we will examine ways in which the movement of the pelvis on the femurs is essential for allowing our spines to articulate well in flexion and extension. In order to properly understand how to mover our spine in the sagittal plane, we need to have a basic understanding of its joints and of the articulating surfaces of the pelvis on the femurs. This course will offer a simple anatomical review of these joints and will provide preparatory movement protocols that will help inform and encourage reasonable and healthy spinal articulation while performing exercises from the Pilates repertoire.
Appropriate for: All instructors
