Workshoptag in Salzburg mit Amit Younger

The Shoulder Joint- How to stabilize an anatomically super-mobile joint?

The shoulder joint is a muscle dependent joint. No other joint in the body has so much mobility or is required to perform such big range of motion (under normal circumstances) Of course; there is a price to pay…instability, weakness, tightness, impingement syndrome and all kinds of imbalances.

From the Cat, to Up-Stretches, to the Twist; intermediate and advanced repertoire of Pilates requires good organization of the shoulder girdle, good shoulder mechanics and a lot of strength…

In this workshop we will look at the structure of the shoulder joint and how it is closely related to the position of the shoulder girdle and to the function of the scapula. We will then put it into practice- looking first at how to re-organize the trunk and the shoulder girdle for optimal performance; then look at open-chain strengthening exercises and finally, closed-chain (weight bearing) exercises.

Pelvic-Lumbar Stabilization

The Pelvic-Lumbar area or what we call “The Core” is an area of major concern to Pilates teachers. Different schools teach different approaches to stabilizing the core and physiotherapy protocols tend to influence our understanding and decision making as well.

This workshop will look at how we stabilize the Pelvic-Lumbar area in different movement scenarios and examine what is required in order to counteract forces that pull on the body while performing Pilates exercises. We will learn how to engage hip-joint, pelvic and abdominal muscles simultaneously and how to ensure that the centre of the body is strong and supple without creating tension and compression in the rib cage or spine.
