Description

Olga Tamara (Authentic Pilated Education Australia) will lead this four hour workshop which is designed to teach instructors how to incorporate the Classical Pilates intermediate / advanced mat and tower repertoire into a challenging "tower class" for healthy clients. Group classes are commonplace in the Pilates landscape and we need to be aware how to best incorporate the Pilates system into an uplifting and challenging workout.

This material will be a delivered with combination of discussion and interactive practical experience where attendees will participate, and learn the exercises and repertoire, using Classical Pilates Techniques on the Tower - Mat.

The Movement Refinery has recently opened in North Fitzroy and is a beautiful space dedicated to furthering the Pilates experience for clients and supporting instructors through paid and free workshops (facilitated through MPTN).

Private sessions with Olga are also available on Sunday 6 August - 1 hour $150 paid directly to Olga.

If demand calls for it, we can add a second session on Sunday 6 August.

We are in the process of applying for PDP's with both PAA and APMA and will keep you updated.
