Joseph Pilates' matwork can be described as the heart and the soul of the Pilates method. Legend says that his incredible apparatus inventions, the reformer, cadillac, wunda chair, pedi-pole, etc were all designed as tools to assist the client/student/practitioner to understand, enjoy, and to gain great benefit from the method.
The reformer may be the greatest of all of Joe Pilates inventions. It is certainly the most widely used Pilates apparatus, and it is the most "universal". This 4 hour workshop taught by 2nd generation teacher Ken Heizman, will cover the full "original" repertoire of reformer exercises, as much as possible. This will be a continuation of previous reformer workshops. However, all Pilates instructors and experienced Pilates practitioners are welcome. As with all workshops at O.M. Pilates, everyone will work out, and there will also be emphasis on how this fits into the vast "system" of Pilates that Joe created. Come work out, explore and discover more of the great Pilates system.
