Jennifer M Stacey, MS is excited to be teaching:
To Stretch or Squish?: Recognizing the Stretch Reflex: How to deal with it and use it to our advantage in Pilates at the Pilates Method Alliance conference in October 28, 8:15 – 10:15 am in Indian Wells, California. https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6310819913271431168

Instantly access your centers and release hypertonic muscles!

Is stretching appropriate? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Did your back ever spasm after you stretched it? Do you feel ‘guarding’ in the area of an injury? Welcome to the stretch reflex! The stretch reflex often makes it difficult to recover from injury and bad posture, as it can vary day to day. 

The stretch reflex can also be beneficial if we use it in the correct manner. In Pilates, the stretch reflex is involved with animating the center through proper biomechanics, side back breathing and reaching the limbs long through space. Using imagery such as “When in doubt reach out” “reach the wall” or “opposition” often results in automatic recruitment of the two centers of the body. It is the key to allowing functional interaction of the various fascial and muscular interconnections, synergies and slings. We can optimize our relationship with gravity and enhance performance through the use of these interactions.

Once you know how to recognize and deal with the reflex, you can enhance mobility, flexibility, function and performance.

Learn how to magically address problems and enhance Pilates’ performance immediately in this fun, transformative class.

Sunday, March 12, 12 – 3 pm: “Opening the lower back ribs and the pelvis and “scoop” will follow. Lead with the lungs and honor the psoas in Pilates.”   

Raisa Punkki. Teaser.

What is the secret to moving from the deep center? How can you perform The Hundred, The Nasty Five and The Teaser with a flat stomach, and a neck free of tension? How do you perform the Footwork and Leg Springs with proper pelvic and spinal alignment? Releasing the lower back ribs! You will perform Pilates on all of the apparatus, and skills inspired from Moshe Feldenkrais® and Physio-Synthesis® that free the ribs. Experience a profound transformation of your posture and movement, freedom in your neck, back, hips and legs. Releasing the lower back ribs (thoracolumbar region) allows the body to optimally perform Pilates and movement with a free neck, a flat stomach, aligned pelvis, hips, spine and rib cage. Use the posterior lateral breathing to stabilize, mobilize and suspend your spine and ribs.

Discover the secret to moving from your wings and Serape. Effectively use the two “centers” to enhance performance, prevent and address injuries, back and neck problems. Align your arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, hand and fingers to connect to the armpit and wings while performing Pilates on the Mat and various apparatus.

There are two centers of the body: The cylinder of the trunk and the lower scapular area (“wings”). To recruit the main center (the cylinder) you have to recruit the wings. To recruit the wings you need to align the upper limb. The key to recruiting the trunk and wing centers is correct alignment of the fingers, hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and shoulder.
