A prop can easily add a strength challenge to a mat exercise, but can it improve flexibility and decrease tension? Change your alignment? Enable the core muscles to work more effectively and specifically? Can using a prop inhibit improper biomechanics? Reduce the chronic tightness in our hips and shoulders?

Come to this workshop to find out why YES is the answer to all the above.

This will be a detailed look at how students recruit different muscle patterns when being challenged with a prop. Beanbags will be the prop used in this workshop, but the principles are directly translatable to any prop.

Andrew T Carter, GCFT, has been teaching Pilates for 21 years, 10 of which was spent teaching in tandem with physical therapists in a major NYC clinic for orthopedic injuries. He is also a Guild Certified Feldenkrais® Teacher – an advanced degree in muscle patterning and biomechanics. Andrew has taught and given workshops in Canada, South America, and the US. He has developed “Pilates Synergy©” – an approach to conditioning that involves proper muscular exertion throughout an entire kinetic chain.
