Applying Pilates for Postural Rebalancing with Sally Anderson
We all have postural challenges within our genes, from habitual movements, ways we might compensate, and for a whole host of different reasons. Understanding and maintaining optimal posture is a key to good health, good function, and feeling well. In our modern world, postural issues are being further exacerbated by technology, sitting, stress and so much more.
Sally will present efficient ways to understand, assess and correct postural dysfunctions, integrating Pilates matwork, apparatus, and small apparatus including arcs and wedges.
This highly practical workshop will provide repertoire, applications and sequencing for postural improvement.

Brisbane: Boutique Pilates Method Studio
Application of Strength in the Pilates Studio with Benjamin Rashleigh
11am – 3pm
With the intention of creating better understanding of strength techniques that can be applied when working with the Pilates method, you will come away with very specific techniques that are invaluable for client progression. Participants will learn how we can use these techniques to not only efficiently build strength, but also better mobility and end-of-range specific strengthening that can be applied to a multitude of functions, from sports/arts specific conditioning to daily life needs – for example, picking up that heavy storage box from the top shelf of the cupboard.
Workshop content includes:
- the benefits of strength specific training
- how the body builds strength and its response and adaptiveness to environmental stimuli
- the Overload and Specificity principles of training
- muscle contraction types and the nature of muscular force through each moment of contraction
- flexibility vs mobility
- strategies, application and exercises of the Pilates method
- discussion and Q&A
Participants can expect to walk away with a better understanding of breaking down and applying strength building techniques with the Pilates method and how this relates to their specific, identified and chosen goals.
Melbourne: Aligned For Life CBD
Centred to the Core for Posture, Pain and Performance with Kath Banks
10am-2.30pm (includes 30 min mid session break)
Designed for all movement specialists across Pilates, Fitness and Allied Health industries, this is a post-graduate workshop deepening understanding and providing reasoning, strategies and solid understanding of the most central aspects to the Pilates Method. Kath specialises in bringing the relevant research, science and integrations that cross the sectors of fitness and clinical needs with Pilates, and isn’t afraid to blend and unite the modalities for best outcomes.
This workshop focuses on how and why ‘centring or being centred’ is an essential primary principle of movement that will change your clients progress, motivation and achievements.
Being centred is all about creating a balance. A balance within the musculoskeletal system and a balance between strength, stability, mobility, flexibility and stiffness, to optimise movement efficiency and postural control, increase lumbopelvic and torso stability. Not only does this provide protection for the joints, but it also enables our whole body to be more reactive to the forces applied to it. Becoming more aware of our centre of gravity and creating balance around this point also aids awareness and proprioception, optimising the ability to transfer body weight when moving through space in general life and when performing specific physical activities and sport.
