"Where should I be feeling this?" with Anula Maiberg

"Where should I be feeling this?" with Anula Maiberg

Pilates Instructor Continuing Education Workshop

Where Should I Be Feeling This: Pilates Flow For Uncertain Times

What's wrong with that question? Why is it ok to politely decline to answer? Pilates is a practice, a lifestyle and a method of movement. We are not healers, doctors or therapists. We teach Pilates and that is more than enough.

Do we "owe" our students a "burn"? Does "not feeling" it mean a movement has no value? Is it within our scope of practice to tailor a session to our student's individual nervous systems? Are our student's feelings or lack of feeling or feeling in the "wrong" places facts?

Can we help our students find a better more useful vocabulary for sensation, pain, muscle activation and harm.

Why is one muscle better than another? Lower back sensation is bad. Abdominal sensation is good. Neck sensation is bad. Tricep sensation is good. These are value judgments. What are they based on and how can we guide a session with less sensation based judgments?
