Visceral Mobilisation Through Movement

Part one Liver, Stomach and Colon

This stimulating workshop explores how we can encourage mobilisation and release of the visceral organs through common movement practice.

Liz and Kerry will break down the surface anatomy of these organs, their essential connections and movements, requirements for healthy movement and causes of visceral restrictions, paradigm shifts, contraindications and indications, simple movement testing and specific repertoire that movement teachers can use to help mobilise these organs.

This workshop is a deep-dive into the body to understand how organs respond to specific movements, and will look at repertoire examples that positively affect mobilisation of the viscera.

Liz and Kerry have a wealth of knowledge and experience in making this complex information accessible to Pilates and movement Instructors for immediate inclusion in their teaching and self practice.

This workshop will involve demonstrations using the full suite of Studio apparatus. For those watching at home, you will need a mat, therabands and a rotator disc.

Moving Oedema: Lymphatic Stimulation

Across our lifespan, it’s inevitable that we will deal with physical trauma. These injuries can often cause ongoing swelling in the arms or legs (peripheral oedema) which, without targeted treatment, can lead to immune dysfunction, loss of movement and chronic disease.

This Workshop will focus on the ways that we can apply Pilates Method Repertoire to bring flow back to the lymphatic system and reduce swelling after injury. Marisa will guide you through physiological rationales and how they can be applied to targeted exercise programming for clearing lymphatic fluid.

Learn strategies and programming grounded in lymphoedema manual lymph drainage techniques to apply to clients (or yourself!). You will also leave this Workshop able to apply these techniques to everyday clients to stimulate lymphatic drainage to target minor swelling in every day clients.

Please note:

  • Participants will need stationary / sticker dots for this Workshop! Please contact administration@pilatesitc.edu.au for more details.

ABOUT LANETTE

Lanette Helene’s was first exposed to Pilates in her teenage years as a ballet dancer where she took part in a weekly Matwork class. In 1993, she recognised the work she was partaking in each week was Pilates during a session in, at the time, the only studio in Canberra. Now, Lanette owns and runs Pilates Canberra – home to her Pilates journey for the last 27 years. Lanette has studied a variety of Pilates approaches with varied Pilates qualifications, culminating in the Advanced Diploma of the Pilates Method.

Travelling to New York City each year for the last 10 years, to study with second generation Pilates Practitioners Deborah Lessen, Blossom Leilani Crawford, Kathy Ross Nash, and Brett Howard has greatly influenced Lanettes practise in only the best way. The perspectives she draws from when teaching is varied and focussed on achieving the movement outcome that she thinks will suit and progress the body in front of her.
