BODYVITA® PRESENTS: PILATES EVENT “MAT & PROPS MOTIVATION & INSPIRATION DAY” 

SUNDAY MARCH 12th at “Chassé Dance Studio” in Amsterdam

“I AM STILL LEARNING”  – Michelangelo at age of 87

9:30-10:30 Handy Towel with 

In this Masterclass you will work with a prop that you surely already own: a towel. Turid will show you how this simple prop can add complexity as well as ease to your mat practice. The towel can slide, support, facilitate and challenge. The support and stability of the towel invites core activation, and can help improve range of motion and movement control. Turid will give you new ideas and an enhanced understanding of how a seemingly mundane prop can open a world of opportunities when it is used with the Pilates principles. 

10:45-11:45 Rotational flow with

Are any bones or muscles in your Body straight? So why should our movement be? Spinal rotation or movement in the transverse plane occurs in almost every sport and also in our daily activities. However, in the classical mat practice, we easily get a little too stuck in the sagittal plane, or single plane movements. In this Masterclass, Devon will take you through a repertoire of continuous rotational movements that support activities of daily living as well as therapeutic- and athletic training. You will swirl, swivel, spiral, dive, dip, bend, rotate, revolve, slide, circle, arc, tilt, tip and explore how many movements are available and achievable if you give yourself permission to be curious and playful in your practice.

12:00-13:00 Broomstick with

In this workshop, Tatjana will show you how to use a simple broomstick to add creativity and challenges to your Pilates practice. She will teach variations of classical as well as innovative new exercises aimed at enhancing mobility, flexibility and strength. In this Masterclass, time will also be devoted to specific work to enhance kinesthetic control – something that becomes more and more important as the life of the general public becomes more sedentary. Expect to work in multiple planes and unexpected ways while you discover what a great prop the broomstick really is

14:00-15:00 Pilates in a Flow: Standing to the floor, and up again.

In this Masterclass you will work with the perhaps greatest “prop” you’ll ever own: your body. With no other reference points than your body, mind, breath and your connection to the surface beneath you, you will experience how separate movements can be strung together into a seamless energizing flow. Turid will show how this way of movement helps your overall feeling of wellbeing by stimulating blood circulation, oxygen turnover and lymphatic flow. Just as you might be experiencing the Post-lunch energy dip, this Masterclass will get you flowing back to your feet reenergized for the rest of the day. 

15:15-16:15 Chair without arms: 

You’ve surely heard that sitting is bad for you. But! the average adult in the Netherlands spends between 6 and 12 hours sitting on a daily basis; yet only about half of us reach the recommended target of 150 minutes of weekly movement.  If that is so, how about we take the chair and use it for good? Using a regular dining chair, Devon will give you inspiration and ideas for a wide range of exercises targeting stability, balance, feedback, proprioception, balance and inversions. This Masterclass will add an hour on and with a chair to your day, but don’t expect to be sitting down very much.

“A lot of variations with simple props.”

Mireille M.

“It was one of the nicest things to do for me: I never thought I could do an entire day of Pilates but it was such a nice / no fail environment. It was easy to focus on your own level and get everything out of it that you wanted. Really excellent program, and couldn’t have been a nicer day (oh yeah: could have used a massage afterwards!)”

“I feel energized! Nice for my shoulders as I have a desk job.”

“New ideas to introduce to the classes!”

Daphne Y.

“Well organized, fun and supported full day Masterclass! I would definitely sign up for another one, if offered . Thanks!
Bedankt voor de inspirerende dag! Ik heb ontzettend veel glucose in mijn hersenen verbrand en daarna heerlijk geslapen. Ik hoop dat ik het meeste kan onthouden en door kan geven.”
