Friday 2:00pm – 5:00pm “Keep Your Head on Your Shoulders”

  • What is your placement in space?
  • What do you do in life?

How does this create tense shoulders, neck, and upper back?
Good questions! We will dive into placement and range of movement, then we mobilize, stabilize, and strengthen those functions and translate it into your Pilates vocabulary by going through two series of exercises.

  • ‘ITW’ – This is a progressive exercise series which addresses posture. It strengthens your whole ‘back’ body and specifically your mid/upper back in relation to your shoulder/arm rotation. This series creates awareness and strength for you the client and awareness through observation for you the teacher.
  • Shoulder/neck and SI /sacral/ lower lumbar treatment with the foam roller.
    A Progressive movement series which mobilizes, actively stretches and strengthens. It will inform you where your asymmetries are and how to work with them in your Pilates practice and get a more balanced result.

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.”
