After learning the basics of our anatomy in Anatomical Alignment through Pilates Part 1, this workshop explores some of the deeper realms of the body. Observing how the alignment in our skeletal structure has an impact on how we move through space and how that can create changes through all levels of our body up through our superficial fascia. Joseph Pilates taught about the ‘ridgepole of the human house,’ more current trends discuss the ‘J spine’ over the ’S spine.’ We will specifically take time to examine and move the spine, the rib cage, the diaphragm, the rotator cuff and how they all relate to one another as we breathe deeply and move our bodies. While incredibly helpful, Anatomical Alignment through Pilates Part 1 does not need to be taken as a prerequisite.
