VIC - History of Stretching and Pilates - Saturday 2 September 2017
This four hour presentation and practical workshop will look at the original goals of Joe Pilates when he developed his method. Historical photos and modern anatomical images will assist students to look at and understand the flexibility requirements of the original work, and the interest that Pilates had in his clients acquiring flexibility.
Discussion will also look at modern developments and the extent to which flexibility is still a fundamental aspect of the work.
