MELTed Pilates on the Roller

For those who love Pilates or Yoga for that matter, you will love it even more because the MELT Method will nourish the fascia to make the easiest Pilates move better and its benefits last longer,  and the hardest Pilates move do-able. Hard to believe but your Pilates (Yoga too) will be more efficient, proficient and happy!  For those who think Pilates is too hard or you have to be flexible already to do it, MELT training will make your body more supple and receptive so that your Pilates practice is deeper, authentic, organic and pain-free. We may add some ELDOA which is deep postural fascia stretching.

 

MELT Performance 

This workshop engages you in the more advanced moves on the roller in all dimensions, front, side and sitting to make your stabilization and alignment mechanisms shake, indicating you have a new neural pathway. Again, you learn the new model of understanding the body and how to apply it in your everyday life. We may add some ELDOA which is deep postural stretching. This way your nervous system remodels itself for longevity. If you have any inhibitions or delays in your stabilizers, you will remodel them and then be able to move in the ways you love without pain, dysfunction, and worry. 

 

STOTT PILATES® Conditioning Towel Workout

This simple Pilates-based routine developed by the Merrithew™ team uses the support and resistance of a Conditioning Towel to maintain form. Ideal for those who are less flexible, the towel assists in helping increase the range of motion of the joints and allows muscles to lengthen effectively. Scapular and shoulder stability are highlighted while core strength and stability are enhanced, enabling better performance in other physical activities  Includes a complimentary workout towel with the exercises printed on the front.

MELT Pain and Injury 

This workshop teaches the first level moves on the scientifically designed MELT roller to self-create all the internal health and good stuff you don't necessarily see...creating collagen and elastin, hydrating your connective cells through gentle massage and changing the pressure on the diaphragm, nourishing the fascia, creating true joint stability for feel-good results that last. Yes, you learn new info about your body based on the new, evidenced-based neuro-fascial science. And you can trust the feeling and sense in your body first and foremost. 

STOTT PILATES® Matwork with Ankle Tubing

Designed to enhance body awareness, muscular strength, motor control, and joint mobility, this workshop takes a fresh look at creating flowing sequences with STOTT PILATES® Matwork exercises using ankle tubing.
