Return to Life Conference on the Isle of Mann:
Transitions the Space Between with Kathryn Ross Nash, June 2016. Kathi is one of the most sought out teachers of the work. Her unique style and dedication to the method has made her books a must have for all teachers. This workshop focused on the work of Romana Krysanowska. We explored how a true Pilates workout is one continuous flow of energy, building and deepening from beginning to end. It is not only the exercises but the space between them that creates this flow. Each transition, at every level of the work, is a carefully constructed link, an exercise that connects the work. These transitions if done correctly, not only keep your connection to the Powerhouse, but also introduce and hone exercises to come. We learned to increase flow, depth of the workout and how to move though the spaces between on the Mat and Reformer.
