Romana’s Baby Arm Chair
The Arm Chair was the most underutilized apparatus in Romana’s studio. In 2000, MeJo suffered a neck injury and Romana began teaching MeJo the exercises the Arm Chair in order to help strengthen her neck, shoulders, and upper back. Over the next few years, Romana taught MeJo a full repertoire of exercises on this incredible apparatus. MeJo has since become an expert on this Baby Chair introducing hundreds of teachers around the globe to the benefits of this apparatus. In 2006, MeJo produced the first DVD on this apparatus, “The Gratz™ Arm Chair”. This workshop will review the exercises Romana taught MeJo and show you how to spot your students so they get the most out of it. You will also learn how many of the details on the newer Arm Chairs, (copied from Gratz™) make it impossible to execute many of these exercises.

Advancing Your Reformer
MeJo was one of the few students of Romana’s to receive a Gold Card for her advanced abilities on the Reformer. This workshop will cover the intricate details of the Advanced Reformer as MeJo learned from Romana. It is from mastering this work that some students then build their strength and skills to eventually move on to more super advanced exercises. This workshop will cover the advanced exercises on the reformer. You will learn how to use the system to prepare students for the advanced exercises, break down the exercises for your student's success, and help you learn to progress your students for more to come!

Kathi’s Workshops

Variations on the Reformer
So many variations and so little time. Unveil the why, what, when & who of choosing the correct variation for the needs of the Student. When the purpose of each exercise is focused on, the variation choice is simplified. In this workshop you will learn not only what to choose, but why to use one variation over another & maintain the purpose of each exercise.

Injuries & Application
Pilates is a list of exercises that cleans the body from the inside out. When an exercise is removed from the Mat or Reformer it must be executed safely on the auxiliary apparatus to fulfill the needs of the Method. We will look at a few exercises and find out how to apply the method within the limits and constraints presented.

Killer Caddy
The Cadillac or Table is one of Pilate’s most versatile pieces of equipment. Created to build length & strength with box awareness, there is nothing that can’t be down on this person's playground. Learn how to transform your workout here—at any level. 

The Leg Stretches from the Ground Up
Correctly build your Leg Stretches to deepen the stretch and correct your alignment. Finding the correct alignment from the bottom to the top stretches the muscles that truly need stretching, the muscles that try to avoid the stretch. Learn how to see the correct alignment and increase the depth of the stretch by using the method to find the correct alignment, engaging the correct muscles to stabilize the position, challenging the stability, and then deepening the stretch, thus creating useful flexibility.
