• VIC - The Wonderful Wunda Chair Continues - Part 2 - Sun 22 July 2018

    Description, Requirements

    The Wonderful Wunda Chair continues!

    Due to the recent sold-out success of The Wonderful Wunda Chair workshops, Liz has developed a follow up workshop of more Wunda Chair goodness. Liz has a seemingly bottomless supply of repertoire on the Wunda Chair, from having worked in many studios over her Pilates teaching career, having colleagues from all corners of the Pilates globe, and being a firm believer in always doing classes with a fellow teacher. This workshop will continue the flavour of 2017’s workshops of expanding attendees’ knowledge of how the Wunda Chair can be used to create a comprehensive Pilates session. Repertoire will aim at the more experienced, restriction-free Pilates client, so will delve into more complex movements, and more physically demanding repertoire. So, if you are wanting to expand your own training repertoire, or, wishing to learn some fun yet challenging intermediate to advanced Wunda Chair repertoire for the long-term Pilates aficionado client, come and explore!

    The repertoire covered will vary from what was covered in The Wonderful Wunda Chair Part I, so you are welcome to come to Part 2 if you didn’t attend Part 1. Or, if you came to Part 1 and believe, like Liz does, that the Wunda Chair is simply awesome, and, deserves far more than the typical relegation to the corner for the occasional Mermaid, you are very welcome to come back.

    Presenter Liz Hewett has been working in the health and fitness industries for nearly 20 years, and teaching Pilates for 16 years. She is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, graduating from RMIT in 1999 with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Movement) with distinction, and, from VUT in 2000 with a Graduate Diploma in Exercise Rehabilitation. Her main passion growing up was dance, and she did a year of full time dance training at The Victorian College of the Arts after finishing high school. After spending most of that year either in physio, or, studying anatomy instead of practising her pirouettes, she decided that her love of dance was better served as a practitioner rather than a performer. However, having no idea what that was, she went to university to find out. Liz started doing Pilates during university to help a chronic lumbar disc injury, and, realised that teaching Pilates could fulfil her quest for a career that enriched health through movement.

    Liz went straight from university to studying the APMA Level 1 course with Paul Cini at PhysicalMind Pilates in 2001. Over the course of her Pilates career she has worked at Inbalance Pilates, The Intelligent Body, Bella Life, and, between 2008-2016 was at The Australian Ballet School as the Exercise Physiologist and Strength and Conditioning Coordinator. Liz re-entered the world of small business in 2016 to join Absolute Health & Performance, a new sports medicine centre in Melbourne CBD. After finding her feet in private practice, she is now working for herself as an Exercise Physiologist, Strength & Conditioning coach and Pilates practitioner, as well as teaching at Das Studio Pilates in Fitzroy.

    Liz served on the APMA’s Executive Council for nearly 7 years, as Secretary for Council, and Chair for the Education Committee, and President of the APMA from 2008-2010. She was also a member of the Course Accreditation Committee, whose major project was writing all the materials for the Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Pilates Movement Therapy. Liz has been an invited reviewer of Professional Development applications for Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) and Fitness Australia. More recently, Liz was invited to join the new APMA Advisory Committee.

    Liz’s philosophy as a Pilates teacher is to integrate principles and training techniques from exercise and rehabilitation science with the Pilates Method. Liz’s exercise science knowledge took a boost when she went back to university and completed a Masters in Exercise Science (Strength & Conditioning) in 2015. Her specialty areas are dance, distance running, skiing and chronic musculoskeletal conditions or injury. Being a blend of all of these, Liz tries to live the active lifestyle that we all love and hopefully promote, by going back to ballet as an adult, running her first full marathon in 2017, skiing as often as the budget allows, and doing frequent Pilates & strength training to keep her chronic dodgy bits healthy!
