PRI for Pilates took the show on the road to Webster Groves, Missouri last weekend. The iconic St. Louis arch was a perfect example of a beautifully domed diaphragm. Participants included PT’s, Personal Trainers, Pilates Instructors and an OT. The Pilates newbies to PRI were very receptive to the new concepts and how to incorporate PRI into their Pilates practice. There was great group participation, questions and comments especially from the Laurens, Leah, Tara and Cory.
James did a stellar job explaining appropriate diaphragmatic breathing and the the roles of the IO’s, EO’s TA’s and serratus to this group whose primary focus is the “core”. Sarah had everyone learning to drive in the left and make legal right turns. Donna led the lab integrating Pilates and PRI techniques on the Pilates reformer. We were honored to have Jen Poulin join us to learn how to begin to use Pilates equipment to further enhance her pelvic restoration expertise. Shout out to our host Kelly Ruesing who jumped through many hoops to be present even though she had a music gig in Indiana the same weekend. Special thanks to Nancy Hammond PRC for igniting the interest and bring PRI Pilates to St. Louis.
