@ Pilates Avenue Los Gatos
Teacher training Sept 21 and 22, 2019
SATURDAY Sept 21
1p - 515p
LOOK, LEARN AND LISTEN (4-hour workshop with 15-min break)
LOOK closely during Footwork and LEARN about the entire body. LISTEN to what that tells us and how to move forward. We will assess various bodies from our group and use them to chart our course. What we see in the Footwork dictates how we progress to working on all equipment and how that alignment guides us to best place bodies for optimal connections. See how this information helps us choose appropriate exercises/apparatus to address imbalances in similar yet different ways.
SUNDAY Sept 22
10- 11a MAT CLASS (1 hour workout)
11-12p MAT WORKSHOP (1 hour workshop)
We'll start the day with an invigorating mat class, then break down the matwork with ways to spot where we may assist and increase the challenge.
WORKING WITH THE VERY TIGHT OR VERY FLEXIBLE (2 hour workshop)
Compare how the same exercise looks on different bodies. We'll choose exercises that are particularly difficult for these groups and learn the best approach based on individual needs.
NO TORTILLA TUSH (2 hour workshop)
"No tortilla tush!" That's one of Moses' favorite sayings. Here we take a look at ways we may help your clients get the seat muscles working and connected to the rest of the body. Moses chooses some of his favorite exercises to help. Finish with Q&A if time allows.

"Romana taught me ‘Contrology’ - that’s what Joseph Pilates called his work. I see it as an art form of movement and believe it is the best way to naturally cleanse the body of impurities and replenish it with vibrant energy. It also happens to be a great way to exercise." -- Moses Urbano
