Systems of Support Workshop (Online)

“Sensing, sequencing and initiating movement through our organs for greater rhythm, energy and flow on the move.” – Maggie Macgill.

Our organs are the source of our inner vitality. Occupying our inner space, they provide us with an internal organisation that; gives full bodied support to our skeletal alignment and contributes to the patterning of fine muscular co-ordination. As Pilates professionals, we are privileged to engage with a movement system that was designed very specifically to optimise organ vitality through movement.

In this 2-hour online workshop, we take a deep dive into the Pilates repertoire to understand the key role that our organs play in creating whole body integration, deep abdominal support and powerful flowing movement.
