Right from the Beginning – The Warm Up as Efficient Preparation

Effective preparation underpins the whole client program. The ‘Warm Up’ section (before The Hundred) of any program provides the opportunity to make or break the session. It is here that we can strategically set up muscle patterns, postural address, and specific focus that allows the program to build from a positive starting point. This preparation section can then be honed for client home practice and progression.

In this workshop explore and experience warm up sequences based on strategic movement pattern and postural address and take away strategies for maximizing the preparation section of any workout within appropriate time frames and with reasoning for different client types. This will be a highly practical, mat-based workshop

Presented by: Sally Anderson (2.5 PDP’s)
Where: Core Pilates Brisbane, 15 Gloucester Street, Spring Hill

"From my first conversation with Lisa Jackson at Core Pilates to enquire about learning Pilates through PITC in September 2013, Lisa's passion for Pilates has been contagious. As a student mastering the Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction, with only a few years of Studio Pilates experience, the volume and depth of knowledge required seemed extensive and at times daunting. Lisa and her staff were always very supportive, approachable and wonderfully patient mentors. I need to be close enough to see and feel the execution of exercises myself to learn. I will forever be grateful to Lisa's clients, Lisa and her staff for not only enabling me, but also encouraging me to do this.

Core Pilates is an inspirational and happy studio where the attention to detail is meticulous. I thoroughly enjoy going for my personal sessions, continuing to learn, and feeling blessed to be mentored by Lisa and her staff."

"As an instructor previously trained through several other organisations I cannot recommend PilatesITC with Core Pilates as the Queensland Training Centre highly enough.  Lisa and her staff create an absolutely inclusive learning facility where you are never made to feel inadequate.  Every trainee is made to feel welcome and no question or opinion is ever discounted without being examined on its merit first. Training is extremely thorough and presented via workshops, practicums, and hands-on learning. I am so pleased with my experience at PilatesITC and Core Pilates that I will be continuing my education and completing the Advanced Diploma of Professional Pilates.”

"Each day that I make the time to come into Core Pilates I leave feeling challenged and inspired. I find that all the staff really love Pilates and that is evident everyday through the passion they show. The studio has a very welcoming feel and an amazing student community. If you would like to try Pilates or are thinking about studying to be an instructor I highly recommend Core Pilates Brisbane.”
