Workshop Series: Pilates Matwork: Towel Workout with Michael King

Included Languages




Join Michael and Malcolm in his new workshop where he takes a towel and shows how to use it in your Pilates Movements as well as some specific stretches but standing and on the mat. If you are looking at how to create motivational sessions using household products this workshop will do that. We will bring new ideas that will allow you to can take away the understanding of how a simple tool, when used with the Pilates Principles, repertoire, and goals of the method can expand the client experience and benefits. A standard length bath towel is ideal but not so thick that when rolled up you cannot grasp it in your hands.
