Performance enhancing moving meditations for athletes, artists and people who love to move.
The Starfish Sessions are based on the naval radiation movement pattern that you developed in utero. This movement pattern sets up your ability to move from your centre. When your movement is organised around and from the centre of your body, you will perform any task with greater efficiency, power and ease.
Maggie developed her understanding of Naval Radiation through her studies in experimental anatomy with Alice Cummins. Naval radiation is a developmental stage from the Body-Mind Centering approach.
The Starfish Sessions are also greatly influenced by Maggie’s innate perspective as a Pilates educator and run efficiency coach. Over the past twenty years, she has drawn from the key principles in these sessions and translated them through to her work with successful performers, professional sports people, paralympians and Olympic gold medalists around the world.
A 1-hour Starfish Chair Masterclass with the incredible, Maggie Macgill. A unique session not to be missed.
In line with the unique Starfish Chair Masterclass comes a 2-hour Starfish Workshop with Pilates Mentor, Maggie Macgill.
Sensing, sequencing and initiating movement through our organs for greater rhythm, energy and flow on the move.
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 enthusiasts, we are privileged to engage with a movement system that was designed very specifically to optimise organ vitality through movement.
In this 1-hour masterclass, we peel back the Pilates repertoire to understand the key role that our organs play in creating whole body integration, deep abdominal support and powerful flowing movement.

This is the first time that Blossom has made it to Western Australia and given the extreme logistics to bring Brooklyn NY to Perth WA, this is a rare and wonderful opportunity to experience a one-hour Matwork Masterclass with Blossom on Aussie soil!
Not. To. Be. Missed.
In this immersive and practical workshop, Blossom will dive into the less common Wunda Chair repertoire. She will take you through a selection of these lesser-known exercises: demystify and explore how to broaden and deepen them to apply for clients with specific needs or issues, as well as those seeking new challenges.
Blossom has found that many of the less frequently taught exercises can accommodate a range of client needs and therefore deserve more attention! Add to your existing Wunda Chair repertoire with accessible new exercises, variations and progressions.
Join Blossom for a one-hour Matwork Masterclass, exploring Advanced Matwork repertoire.
Blossom will share extensive Reformer repertoire drawn from her nearly 30 years of experience in the Pilates Method, dance and movement. Blossom will impart an in-depth look at Reformer exercise variations, instilling the precision and application of the Reformer repertoire that has been informed by her unparalleled experience working with Pilates elder Kathy Grant, her training under Romana Kryszanowska, as well as her own long history in dance, movement and additional lineages of Pilates.
Blossom is an open thinking and reasoning teacher who applies an understanding of more contemporary science-based considerations to her work, with applications for all manner of clients and environments, along with a healthy dose of fun! This will be a highly practical workshop.
Join Blossom to explore the professional intricacies of client management, and how to effective access and realise progression for your clients.
An immersive workshop of repertoire and strategies that Blossom uses to progress clients from their initial consultation through the repertoire, along with discussion and demonstrations of the client experience.
A very rare opportunity to learn how Blossom inspires such devotion from her clients through her strong lineage of training and her own developed techniques, progressions and management of client needs and motivations.
Join Blossom and explore a collection of exercises from Kathy Grant combined with traditional Pilates that focus on how the arms attach to the body.
We’ll play with ideas on how to use the upper extremities to strengthen the symmetrical or asymmetrical torso and learn how to effectively implement these tools for clients. Drawing upon her 3D Symmetry work, Blossom will impart an understanding of how to work with repertoire to address arms, shoulders, upper torso, head and neck issues and postures, that is so important in the modern day.
