Saturday 10:00 – 11:00    Mat Class

Saturday 11:15am – 2:00pm Mat Work Progressions – Before the Hundred


roel2Peter will present the series ‘Before the Hundred’, inspired from his many years studying with Master Teacher Kathy Grant. This is about building physical awareness and teaching the sequential stabilizers that become stabilizing energy patterns. This workshop will facilitate and scaffold our understanding of your own approach to Pilates as well as how you individualize the Pilates method when you teach.

Saturday 2:30 – 5 pm     Mat Work into Periphery

Peter learned from both Kathy Grant and Romana Kryzanowska that while they followed the Pilates method that Joe created, they were not stifled by it. When a student needed an exercise to be individualized, that is what they did. Pilates is always developing. Peter will teach how to apply the knowledge from the Mat Work Progressions on the other apparatus. This is about building physical awareness, incorporating sequential stabilizers that become stabilizing energy patterns on all types of Pilates apparatus (Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, Reformer).

As usual, we will have a small and fun party on Saturday evening.


Sunday 10 – 11:15 am     Pilates Mat Class

Sunday 11:15 – 5 pm      Applying Mat work to the Reformer

The Pilates Mat work informs us about the vocabulary on the reformer. It is simpler in the sense that we deal with 2 ingredients, our body and gravity. This gives us a unique opportunity to focus on our technic. Build a clear mind towards the movement sequence within an exercise. How and where to stabilize and initiate the movement. Where is the/your energetic pattern throughout the movement and how do we teach it. We will go from basic to advanced into choreography since continuity and the flow within the movement challenges our coordinative strength. We will correlate roll-up/down to for instance up stretch and long spine. Bridge to pelvic lift to semicircle to high bridge. Tree to teaser. We will deconstruct and with our new-found information, reconstruct.

From Pilates Anytime about Peter

“So interesting to see the definite influence of both Kathy Grant and Romana K. It’s a wonderful combination. Very refreshing that it does not all have to be “one way”.”


“Wonderful class! Clear and precise teaching. My body feels wonderful. Back and hips are open.”
