Reiki Circle

$29 | Saturday 4/08/17 | 12:30 – 2pm | with Linda Scheele (Yoga)

Reiki is a healing practice which can help return us to balance on every level – mental, emotional, spiritual – regardless of age. Reiki supports our well-being and strengthens our natural ability to heal. In Japan, Reiki is hands-on, but in the U.S., Reiki is performed with hands a few inches above the body. Reiki is currently used in over 800 hospitals in the U.S. and is one of the top three alternative treatments used. Linda, a certified Reiki practitioner, will facilitate the circle. Each participant will lend their light energy to the Reiki practitioner so that she can channel, ground, and direct that energy to the other participants in the room.

Why the Order is the Order

$299 | Friday 5/19/17 | 1pm – 7pm | with Saul Choza (Continuing Education)

We are excited to welcome Saul Choza, Mari Winsor’s right hand man, to Pilates of Palm Beach. Saul’s career in Pilates began accidentally. A struggling dancer in search of improving his classical technique, Saul met and began training with Mari Winsor, Hollywood’s premiere Pilates Instructor. Thus began a two-decade relationship, with Saul taking on a role as a Winsor Senior Instructor and appearing in numerous Winsor fitness videos. In 2016, their longstanding friendship resulted in Saul taking over the business with the launch of Winsor Choza Pilates, a boutique Pilates studio in Hollywood, CA, where he is continuing Mari’s legacy.

WHY THE ORDER IS THE ORDER (6 CECs):

This 6 hour workshop is an in-depth look at Joseph Pilates’ original work; looking at the through-line of the beginner, intermediate, and advanced reformer and mat order as set by Romana.

Step 1: An exploration into pre-pilates leading into
beginner mat work. We will start with beginner reformer and end with closing exercises.
Step 2: Discuss what exercises are added into the intermediate workout and why. Students will experience intermediate mat and reformer.

Shoulder & Hip Joint – The Other Powerhouses

$299 | Saturday 5/20/17 | 1pm – 7pm | with Saul Choza (Continuing Education)

SHOULDER & HIP JOINT – THE OTHER POWERHOUSES (6 CECs):

In this workshop, students will learn that hip joints not only serve as base joints for the attachment of the lower extremities, but they are also basilar joints for the pelvis which is the foundation of the spine. A well balanced hip-joint hosts a neutral pelvis which is a vital structure for a healthy spine.

We will discuss: overdeveloped gluteus, hip-flexors, and hamstrings, and the effects on the spine. Students will also learn the proper muscle activation for the “wrap,” and why the cue to “squeeze the butt” does not allow freedom of the pelvis which is very important in many of the Pilates exercises.

During the second part of the workshop, participants will learn the importance of mobility of the scapula, as well as exercises that help stretch and strengthen muscles in the shoulder complex. The cue “shoulders down,” creates too much simplicity of the complex workings of the shoulder joint. One will learn how to look at this structure as a three dimensional object. Students will discover that when creating a balanced muscle structure in the joint, especially in exercises with point of contact in the hands, will facilitate the connection of your “powerhouse.”
