Anula Maiberg's Mythbusting Your Pilates Practice

Anula Maiberg was born in Israel and moved to NYC in 2001 in order to pursue a career in photography. While working on her degree at the School of Visual Arts she fell in love with Pilates through the classes and private sessions she took around the city. After receiving her Masters in Fine Art from the Royal College in London and a few years at a "desk" job she realized happiness wasn't in front of the computer screen. She decided to attended the Kane School for Core Integration (Kinected) to become a fully certified teacher graduated in 2009. After several years teaching she was accepted into the Kathy Grant Heritage Training Masers Program led by Cara Reeser of Pilates Aligned in Denver and graduated in 2014. Anula is passionate about upholding the traditions and principles of Pilates while being able to update and personalize them for the needs of her students. She also feels strongly about volunteering her time to the LGBTQ community and believes Pilates is a wonderful movement modality and a tool for healing in a supportive environment.

Anula's Mythbusting Your Pilates Practice workshop will cover some common misconceptions encountered in Pilates. First and foremost, the feeling of not being good enough at certain exercises. She will cover some simple ways to change the language we use to discuss our bodies and make room for ourselves to feel more successful.

Blossom Leilani Crawford
Mar

to Mar 19

Blossom Leilani Crawford

Blossom Leilani Crawford is the owner and director of Bridge Pilates in Brooklyn, New York. She is known for her playful and powerful teaching methods, which she developed during the seventeen years she worked with Pilates Elder Kathleen Stanford Grant. Since then, Blossom has made it her mission to expose each one of her students to the joy and satisfaction that comes from intelligent exercise.

Saturday, March 18th Day 1 $350


Before the Hundreds  1-4pm
Blossom assisted Kathy Grant's matwork class at NYU for 10 years. In that class, Kathy developed a vocabulary of warm-up exercises that came before starting the traditional Pilates matwork. Before the Hundreds are the building blocks to doing the traditional Pilates vocabulary. This is the heart of Kathy's work. The exercises have a huge stylistic range, but can be easily assimilated into your teaching. Before the Hundreds includes warm up movements that will mobilize, deeply strengthen your abdominals and enhance your body awareness. After this workshop, you will have a new tool kit to get in tune with your body.


Kathy Grant's Cats and Beyond 4-7pm
Kathy loved cats and loved the way they moved. They inspired her to make up many different exercises based on their movements. You'll learn all of Kathy's "cats" and how Kathy used them within the traditional Pilates framework.
You'll discover that the principles, imagery and skills of the cats can transfer to other Pilates exercises both on and off the equipment. Kathy Grant’s cats are a wonderful way to warm up a group of students and stretch without tension.


Sunday, March 19th Day 2
Mat Class $40 11am-12pm


Wunda Chair Wonders $275 12-5pm
In this Wunda Chair workshop, Blossom will lead an exploration of the traditional exercises of the Wunda Chair. This is not a workshop of dazzling new choreography or tricks, but, rather, a look at the classical movements of the Wunda Chair stripped of flourishes to highlight its simple yet challenging movements. She will share some simple variations to the traditional Wunda Chair exercises that will assist in flexion, extension and rotation of the spine without adding dozens of new exercises. Blossom will gently (and not so gently) remind instructors of exercises that are completely accessible, but sometimes left off.
