The Foot: The Foundation of Locomotion with Kelly Kane

The complex make-up of the foot has inspired some of the most unique architectural structures in the world; it supports the human body when we stand, walk and run. Despite such overarching admiration, however, we abuse and generally take it for granted! In this workshop you will learn the inner blueprint of the structure of the foot. Additionally, you will gain insight into how to create a unique program that will assist in the improvement of the overall function of the body based on a happy, realigned foundation.



Pathology & Programming for Pilates Professionals: Workshop Series, with Carrie McCulloch, MD, and Matt McCullochWorkshop #1: Knee Injuries

This workshop series co-taught by Kinected co-directors Carrie and Matt McCulloch empowers Pilates instructors to work safely and effectively with injured clients. Each workshop kicks off with an anatomical tour of the body region at hand, lead by licensed physician, Dr. Carrie McCulloch. Dr. McCulloch will review musculoskeletal anatomy and biomechanics, laying a strong foundation for understanding how and why common injuries develop. Master Pilates instructor Matt McCulloch will then delve deeply into programming and modifications for effective recovery and prevention. Programming considerations will include in-home exercises, as well as modified exercises on the reformer, cadillac, and chair.



Funktional Taining Strategies with Detlef Poehlmann

In the functional workshop “Functional Training Strategies” you will be introduced to techniques and tools you can use to regeneratively support your clients. You will deepen you knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics and gain an insight into how to best create the most efficient training for your client. The focus is on the following: the 6 Flexibility Highways (fascial chains) in terms of three dimensional movement; an introduction to the 6 key areas in biomechanics; additional key areas for sports-related issues; understanding and recognizing quality in proprioception; tissue characteristics and balancing the client by carrying out, for example, biomechanical tests. This workshop will provide you with a foundation to develop exceptionally effective training.

Understanding the Core with Kelly Kane

In this workshop, we will look at the musculoskeletal anatomy of what is often referred to as the “core,” defining and exploring the “inner and outer units.” Explore the anatomy of this region, and apply your newly-found knowledge to the three-dimensional form through palpation and observation fellow participants. Learn what “core stability” really means, how to teach it, and how to assess if clients are executing it effectively. Study exercises and master effective cuing that will be your tools for helping clients achieve stronger abdominals and low backs.



"Pilates for dancers – using the Polestar method” “Pelvic Stability in dance” with Francis Melis and Nina Metternich

The movement of the hip joint and connection to the pelvis is of particular importance in dance. A stable, well-positioned pelvis protects against injury, helps the spine to align and allows for more joint agility of the hip. This workshop will introduce you to strengthening exercises and exercises that mobilize structures. This Pilates training offers many exercises that are oriented towards selective hip movement and strengthening the torso. Dance is the ultimate means of transporting these ideas. Classical movements can be carried out in their original set, can be modified or can be supplemented by using apparatus, which altogether, form the basis of a sound daily comprehensive training program.

Healthy Necks with Kelly Kane

How many people have told you that they feel all of their abdominal exercises primarily in their necks?  In this three-hour workshop, we will define healthy neck mechanics for abdominal exercises.  We will look at the musculoskeletal anatomy of the cervical spine and cranio-cervical junction.  We will clearly define healthy options for bringing our heads off of the mat and learn to assess what is not so healthy and why.  The classic principles of cervical nod and curl will be explored, as well as ways to analyze for and facilitate healthy biomechanics in group and one-on-one settings.



Applications for Special Populations on the Mat with Matt McCulloch

Take your mat class teaching to the next tier with this workshop taught by master Pilates instructor and Kinected co-director Matt McCulloch. Designed to connect what you know about the body to special populations scenarios, this workshop empowers you with the tools you need to get and keep your injured clients on the road to recovery. Review the anatomy of common injuries, master Pilates matwork modifications, and learn how to seamlessly integrate choreography for special populations into your classes.



"Biomechanical posture and gait analysis according to Chuck Wolf"
with Detlef Pöhlmann

In this workshop, Detlef Pöhlmann will show you how to look at the human body from a biomechanical perspective by analyzing a person’s gait. Detlef will go into detail and describe what muscular activity takes place when a foot touches the ground. In doing so, he will refer to Chuck Wolf’s “Functional Training” that includes the so-called 6 Flexibility Highways that are important for any analysis and therapy. Dynamic stretching and power exercises will be carried out in a standing and not lying position. In doing so, Detlef will touch upon the teachings of Gary Gray and Thomas Meyers (Anatomy trains).

The Iliopsoas Complex with Kelly Kane

Many low back issues can be traced to imbalances in the iliopsoas complex.  When low back pain and muscular spasm arise, they often result from an imbalance in the iliopsoas complex.  Understanding the structure and function of the iliopsoas complex can help you understand how to facilitate healthy movement in your clients, so that they may experience a life free of low back and hip pain.  In this workshop, we will explore all the traditional concepts of structure and function of the iliopsoas complex, and at the same time, create a new paradigm for understanding the psoas and iliacus.  Learn powerful tools to help your clients balance the iliopsoas complex, and thus achieve balance in their low backs and hips.



Pilates Programming for the Runner with Matt McCulloch

In this workshop, master Pilates instructor Matt McCulloch will show you how to program an effective Pilates routine for running clientele. Gain a solid understanding of proper running biomechanics, as well as common postural pitfalls and overuse injuries of this activity. Learn how to apply this knowledge to client scenarios with ways to assess for subtle signs of imbalance. Additionally, you will learn strategies to eradicate bad habits by progressing your clients from non-weight bearing to weigh-bearing exercises, slowly but surely replacing ineffective compensations with better biomechanics. Targeted exercises for the runner will be covered on the mat, reformer, cadillac, and chair.



"The Nervous System 101" with Carrie McCulloch, MD

Nervous about the nervous system? Don’t be! In this in-depth anatomy workshop, taught by licenesed physician and Kinected’s medical director Carrie McCulloch, MD, we’ll demystify the anatomy and physiology behind our spinal cord, nerve roots, and nerves. Designed for newcomers and advanced students, alike, the workshop will deepen your knowledge of the anatomy that makes us move, creating a foundation from which we can understand the nervous system's function and importance. Participants will practically apply this knowledge to a Pilates practice, revisiting common upper extremity exercises and exploring the nervous system anatomy that makes them happen. The workshop will also lay a foundation for common nerve injuries, enabling participants to understand the how’s and why’s behind signs and symptoms of nerve pain.
