The Core Explorer workshop series gives you a chance to dive deep and learn the relationship of the entire body and a powerful core. Core is beyond the abdominals. It is the whole body coordinating, integrating, and awakening!
In each monthly session, we will take a look inside the body with anatomical visuals and move through Pilates movements (and more) in a thoughtful, experiential, and fun way.
This course will leave you with a new view on how to approach movement. The material presented can be applied to any discipline and any person, regardless of experience. The workshops build on each other and so it is recommended to take all three - but this is not required.
