Pilates for Performers with Larissa Kelloway

 

It’s hard enough to stay “show fit” when you have access to all your regular classes and coaching sessions, let alone in a global pandemic. If you are looking for an easily transportable, small space friendly activity, Pilates is perfect for you!

Lifted from the extensive work Larissa has conducted with performing artists as part of her PhD research project, she will walk you through a 50 minute Pilates based mat class that has been specifically designed for performing artists. Focus areas will include spinal articulation especially in the thoracic spine, rib mobilization and breath facilitation, trunk and pelvic control for dynamic stabilization, head and neck posture strengthening and awareness, and whole body integration.

This class will be offered at an intermediate level, but participants of all levels are encouraged to attend.
