Workshop 1: Training smarter AND harder
During the last two decades, motor control, biomechanics and ergonomics have been considered for many as the primary source of injuries. However, recent evidence is showing that is workload the most influential variable in overuse musculoskeletal injuries. What is even more interesting, is that the very same workload that can provoke injuries, when is managed correctly, becomes our most powerful tool for prevention, rehabilitation and performance. During the workshop, you will learn how to measure and monitor load to optimize the progress of your training programs. We will also explore creative ways of adapting Pilates exercises for athletes and higher level performers.
The workshop consists in two different sessions:
- -Lecture about load management and injuries
- Demonstration of Pilates Studio exercises adapted for athletes.

Workshop 2: Movement Unchained
As movement professionals it’s easy to get stuck teaching certain exercises that our clients follow obediently. This is a great way to convey and learn a basic movement vocabulary, but what happens after those movement skills are developed? Are the same exercise patterns the best way to keep growing? The truth is that once you’ve already learnt something, repeating it won’t make it to improve anymore.
In this introductory workshop, instead of planned exercises we will explore task-oriented movement. Using tactical games, improvisation and partnering, you will discover different ways of using your body to solve a problem. Unchained the movement inside you and get yourself ready to expand your movement boundaries.
The workshop consists in four different sessions:
- Coordination drills
- Partnering Games
