This two-day workshop is a pilates-based exploration of the exquisite versatility and dynamism of our thorax, shoulders and arms. Irene Dowd will analyze the potential joint movements which the thoracic spine, rib cage, shoulder girdle and shoulder joint are capable of performing. She will lead participants through a kinesthetic experience of the muscles that produce movements of the thorax, shoulders and arms, with particular emphasis on removing impediments to breathing, mobilizing the scapula on the rib cage, and recruiting the rotator cuff and scapula muscles as needed in action. Steven Fetherhuff will lead participants through a daily mat class and will demonstrate various protocols on the pilates equipment which enhance function of the thorax, shoulder and arm. Both Irene and Steven will collaborate in reviewing common challenges, as well as approaches to modifying traditional protocols to avoid injury and enhance balanced muscle conditioning.
