Fascia Works

The Inside Job of Fitness Introducing the Fascia and the Innerworks of Pilates

The Fascia Works workshop introduces the important role of the connective tissue in movement, the very reason Pilates technique works. This latest science which now rocks the movement and therapy world is introduced on a level that is easy to understand and underwrites both Pilates, therapeutic movement and dance conditioning.

This workshop explores the lates research on connective tissue and how it applies to movement. Marie-José will present the most recent discoveries with her unique ability to grasp the details that can give us all a deeper understanding of what we do and why it works. This workshop is open to instructors of Pilates, Gyrotonic®, therapeutic movement modalities and dance conditioning.

SmartSpine One Day Therapeutic In-Service

Teaching and treating with the SmartSpine™ System, the must have teaching aid/treatment tool to get the “upper hand” in your clients’ progress. Your upper hand.

This day 2, on site in-service, is geared to the clinical practice or therapeutic environment. The objective is to place an effective treatment tool in the skilled hands of the practitioner. The SmartSpine™ is designed to be used heated during treatment, or movement education and adds another dimension in proficiency and success when it comes to the process healing.

The SmartSpine™ technique and approach is grounded in the current research of fascia. It is through this connective tissue that restorative movement is processed and communicated. The language is the warmth introduced during the movement using the fascial system as the intelligent delivery system. Grounded in current research in the field of fascia, the SmartSpine™ System uses the fascial properties (thermal reception, proprioception, and interoception) as an effective delivery system to promote improved movement learning. The SmartSpine™ System has become an important interface between the fascial potential and therapeutic movement learning.
