Join MKPilates in the Isle of Man on Pilates Day 2019 at this May 4-5th weekend event to celebrate the opening of the Knockaloe Internment Camp Museum. "I never met Joseph Pilates but was told by those that have, that Joseph always spoke very well of his time at the camp. The first time I visited the camp it was hard to imagine how 24,000 people could live and exist in this small area. But it is here that Joseph developed his method using hospital beds and springs and many stories of how his strength of character that got a whole camp exercising is credited with helping the internees avoid the effects of the influenza epidemic of that time that took many lives. It is because of his contributions to the camp and the subsequent explosion of his method called Contrology that a special section of the museum is dedicated to Mr. Pilates."
"So this year we have brought together a great team to share the weekend with you with different styles of the Pilates Method and different stories as to why they have been invited. We have Roberta to represent the New York era of Pilates with her work from her studio in the original home of Joseph Pilates in New York. Elisa, who with APPI have been key players in the introduction of Pilates to the clinical world both in the UK and around the world and then we also have Kateryna who has a foot in both the Traditional work and the Contemporary interpretations while learning and educating other teachers internationally. When Malcolm and I organised the first Pilates Event on the Island more than 10 years ago to honour The Method and help to keep the goals of Joseph Pilates alive, we received such a warm welcome from the people of the Isle of Man. As we educate and travel all over the world, we find many teachers have no knowledge of the history of the works of Joseph Pilates."
Junko Sakurai has organized two days of workshops with the public and her trainers- We will teach 1 hour classes using the Stretch-eze and small ball. Also Module I ,II, and III.
Have you ever considered a connection between your feet and your neck? Meet the fascia: a connective tissue that forms a body-wide tensional network. The fibrous architecture of fasciae provides resistance when muscles are stretched, and slack when muscles are in a shortened position. Fascia connects all muscles and organs, providing structural support for posture and movement. Elastic and resilient fascial structures serve as an internal mechanism to improve movement performance and prevent injuries. Similarly, external elastic props can be used to provide support, resistance and sensorial feedback during exercises.
We will be onsite at this year's PMA in Indian Wells and offering our one day training for Pilates instructors Sat October 28th 3-6:30 and Sunday,October 29th 9-12:30am. Special guest trainer Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle

Thank you everyone who visited us both at the workshop and the ADTA table!! It was so good to see old friends and meet new dance/movement therapists doing incredible work. Susan Kleinman we always thank you for your support. Rena KornBlum gave an incredible workshop on diverting school violence and showed how to access and utilize group support with our Stretch-eze. Balls and Bands workshop was special in that I had a very good group of willing and able participants who stayed present with alot of new and challenging material. Meg Chang who I have always respected was there along with Lenya Treewater, Amber Gray (who I finally met) and many new people who were clearly devoted to dance/movement therapy work.

Kimberly's favorite move uses a looped band, called Stretch-eze, to create resistance. "Using the support and resistance of the Stretch-eze actually feels good," says Kimberly, "while it creates a cleaner access to the deeper abdominal and low-back muscles."
Name of Move: Pilates Low Back/Core Activation using a Stretch-eze band.
Why She Likes It: This move allows you to strengthen your transverse abdominal muscles and low back, improving pelvic stability and core strength. It will also improve joint stability, hip strength, and range of motion.View Full Article Here
