Iso-Lungs of Life Workshop

“Above all else, learn how to breathe properly!” Joseph Pilates.

The power of a full and easeful breath cannot be overstated.

The uninhibited flow of breath increases energy levels, reduces mental stress, decreases the build up of physical tension and boosts athletic performance.

The sheer volume that the lungs take up inside the torso means that correct breathing also: Gives buoyancy and lift to the upper body. And, provides a physical balance to the weight and power of the legs.

The Pilates Method is one of few movement systems that effectively addresses the dynamic and multifaceted nature of breathing. As Pilates Practitioners we have intimate knowledge of an exercise system that enables better breathing in even the most athletically challenging situations.

This workshop explores how the organs and processes of respiration both support and are supported by movement. We use Joe’s equipment and choreography to teach us how to time and sequence our movement patterns to facilitate greater respiratory volume. Along the way we will deepen our awareness of how outstandingly the Pilates method oxygenates and enlivens every cell of the body!

Join Maggie Macgill for this two-hour Workshop, via Zoom. Places are strictly limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
