29-30 December: Two Day Refined Pilates Seminar in London

Dear Friends, Thanks to the kindness of my family and friends I will be visiting my hometown for Christmas and the New Year. I am looking forward to sharing the love and warmth of the season and to sharing my accumulation of years of experience teaching Pilates, Yoga, Reiki and practicing both cranial sacral and sound therapy. I have enjoyed and benefited from combining the richness of these disciplines for many years. I graduated from the London School of Contemporary Dance and studied at the Graham School Dance led me to Pilates and I have loved dance for as long as I can remember. I am very grateful to be hosted by Monica Zamora, ballerina and Gyrotonic teacher, at her studio in Notting Hill / Ladbroke Grove. She is extremely sensitive to, receptive and appreciative of my work. I will be teaching an intimate 2-day seminar and I will be available for individual mentoring.


The power of touch, breath and fascia for remedial techniques and pain relief. 29 and 30 December 2018 GOLBORNE PLACE 70 Golborne Road, Notting Hill , W10 5PS

Saturday 29 December 12.00 - 18.00

12.00 - 14.30 REFINING SENSITIVITY OF TOUCH In order to take our students into a deep state of relaxation in order for them to have a humane, truthful, nurturing, connection with their bodies. This is a process which can completely change their way of exercising and lead to dramatic positive change in their bodies, whatever their age or condition. This can be as equally essential to a professional dancer as to a person with physical challenges. This way of "being" with a student results in dramatic changes in the body and PAIN RELIEF. 15.30 - 18.00 Using the power of touch to promote fascia release can positively impact the subconscious and dreams leading to a lifelong self-empowering ability to heal oneself through touch and movement.

WORKING IN PARTNERS Evolving, with the power of touch, true sensitivity to the life force of the spinal column. The power of gratefully acknowledging each vertebra in movement. How moving vertebra by vertebra heals back problems. Sensitizing the student to spinal succession with the focus on the spinal processes moving into the first position of the spine or flexion of the spine. Hand positions and focus for releasing and energizing the whole spine. Touch placements and quality of connection for releasing and energizing the neck and the sacrum.

Sunday 30 December 12.00 - 18.30 12.00 - 14.30 Remedial fascia exercises or experiences and how specific touch corrections can make them more effective.

Touch techniques for further releasing the diaphragm leading to more essential breathing.

Experiencing the full support of the lungs.

15.30 - 18.30 COMBINING TOUCH AND MOVEMENT TO ADDRESS TMJ ISSUES. Movements to release the psoas.

Teaching ways to develop a healthy, positive curiosity towards the body and movement.

We can move any of the aspects that we explore and apply it to any exercise on the mat or any piece of Pilates' equipment or yoga asana.

I am open and excited to respond to the needs of the group.

There will be a one-hour break at about 14.30 on both days. There are a wide variety of pleasant cafes near the studio.

IT IS ESSENTIAL TO ATTEND THE ENTIRE SEMINAR We will be continuously developing our level of focus and honing our sensitivity. The group energy will have shifted dramatically after the first day making it very hard for a new person to join the group. I plan to teach a seminar in an intimate group of up to 5 persons.

As the group is small there will be an opportunity to explore and nurture each persons' unique teaching and healing qualities. The seminar is for Pilates teachers, Yoga teachers, advanced students, dancers and body workers who wish to make their teaching and practice more effective.
