This compelling workshop will present select exercises from the STOTT PILATES Advanced Matwork repertoire. These high-level exercises will be dissected to examine how components of movement essence are elevated. Through demonstration and explanation, the purpose and goal of each move will be explored with special focus on stability, mobility, sequencing, balance, endurance and coordination. Individuals will be encouraged to perform and observe each exercise with an eye to executing and teaching them safely and effectively. Exercise choices will comprise a combination of those that are a progression from the Essential and Intermediate levels and those that are specific to the Advanced work.
