Keeping the Flame Intensive Weekend: Pilates for the Mature Client
March 24-26, 2018
Beverly Hills, CA
Pilates Legend Jillian Hessel hosted this March workshop which focused on Pilates for the ature Client at her indoor-outdoor studio space at her Beverly Hills home. Practicing mat and the Wunda chair in her beautiful gardens, working on the reformer in her gorgeously decorated living room and exploring Cadillac work in her studio, participants gained new knowledge on not only practical matters such as, choice of exercise, pacing and contraindications but also the mental and psychological considerations of working with older adults. Jillian not only imparted her Pilates knowledge but that which she gained from earning a certificate from the Functional Aging Institute. It is rare to find such a generous, open and caring Pilates mentor that truly wants to give of herself to her students.
Every participant gained not only the confidence to teach older adults but the feeling of support from Jillian as a wonderful Pilates mentor. Keeping the Flame is a series of three Intensive workshops held throughout the year and focus on topics relevant to Pilates teachers. Students do not need to follow in any particular order to attend. Jillian’s Keeping the Flame Workshops are limited to 6 participants and focus on bringing a detailed and indepth exploration of the topic.
