Sing My Song: Applying The Lessons Of Kathy Grant with Maria Earle
Saturday, July 20, 2019
Get creative and go deeper in this workshop that will illuminate the teaching of Pilates with the techniques of his protégé Kathy Grant.
Kathy Grant studied closely with Joe Pilates in the 1950s and ‘60s. Over the five decades that followed she developed her own sophisticated and highly intuitive approach to his method. She was supremely skillful in guiding movement with her hands, ‘listening’ to the rhythm movement and finding subtle nuances to enhance alignment and movement education.
Now Maria Earle can pass that knowledge on to you. During 13 years of mentorship in New York City, Kathy entrusted her deep understanding and creative approach to the classical Pilates exercises to Maria.
In this workshop there will be cats, sand tunnels, weathervanes, whistles and hums. You will come away with protocols that provide a framework for the apparatus and mat sequences. You will deepen your understanding of the method and be able to teach specific functional movement skills. You will be able to deconstruct the Pilates lexicon, and ultimately move more authentically through the use of sound, imagery and props.
