THE MIND
Mindfulness 4 Week Introductory Course

There is so much research available to us now that can demonstrate the effectiveness of a mindfulness practice.  Learning how to be more mindful in our daily lives can ease many stresses and overwhelm and help us feel more centred and grounded.   To be mindful doesn’t necessarily mean you need to sit and meditate for hours each day.  This course will explain what mindfulness really is, how you can be more mindful and find more flow and ease in your life.

We have invited Dr Sue Jackson to join us this spring to introduce us to the many benefits that mindfulness can offer.

We will be offering a 4 week introductory course and these sessions will run for 50-minutes each week.   Sue will be introducing us to a range of mindfulness practices aimed at cultivating calm and present-moment awareness. Each week there will be guided mindfulness practices, practical guidelines for home practice, and opportunity to share experiences in a small group setting.

THE BODY
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

Recharge Your Body with Trigger Release Therapy

Rolling, spiky balls, trigger point release… these terms and more all describe self-myofascial release. That is, when you use pressure to treat your sore muscles and other soft tissues. For those who have a manual therapist at their beck and call, just get them to deal with it! But for the rest of us, it’s a cost- and time- effective way of reducing pain, improving form, maintaining musculoskeletal health or rehabilitating an injury.

Learn the current state of play with trigger points, where they might be and how you can incorporate their treatment into your practice. Each tool-based technique, exercise, mobilisation and stretch is discussed in detail, including any contraindications.

MASTER THE MIND SERIES
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT releases the blockages that are created when a person thinks about or becomes involved in an emotionally disturbing circumstance. When the blockage is released, the emotions come into balance.

Using EFT on emotional disturbances such as Fears, Phobias, Trauma, Insomnia, Anxiety or Addictive Behaviour, is gentle and the result is lasting as the persons awareness usually changes in a positive way as a natural result of the healing.

EFT can be taught to anyone of most age groups even children. Learn this simple technique and you will begin to free yourself from the negative experiences in your life.

STUDENT FEEDBACK

"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."

Robyn Sanders

Core Pilates Student-Teacher

"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.”  

Angela Schoemaker

Core Pilates Student-Teacher

"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.”
