Workshops: Explore and engage at our studio!

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hosted frequent workshops based on our clients' needs and wants. Led by industry pros, clients got to try new skills and build on existing ones. We plan to revive these workshops once it is safe to gather in numbers again. For now, here's a sampling of what we offered in early 2020. 

During the golf off-season, we joined forces with Helen Kurtin of St. Louis Golf Academy to deliver a completely personalized golf fitness training experience in our Des Peres studio. Read Helen's bio.

 

Class goals:

  • improve mobility

  • improve range of motion in joints

  • increase rotational strength, speed, stability, and stamina (Helen’s “4 Ss”)

Each session included a warm-up, golf-specific exercises, and golf swing drills. Each client was given complimentary access to additional exercises and swing drills that they can do at home or at the gym using MyTPI.com and the Coach Now app.

Pilates trainer (and pregnant!) Christina Castellano offered a Prenatal Pilates workshop. Because Pilates encourages the participant to focus on breathing, concentration, and core strength, it's a nearly ideal exercise choice for pregnant women.

As pregnancy progresses, the internal environment of the woman’s body changes dramatically and results in the internal organs pressing up toward the chest, which may make breathing more difficult.

 

Along with the importance of breathing, maintaining proper control of the pelvic floor muscles is fundamental to Pilates. These benefits may be more important during pregnancy, where well-conditioned muscles involved in the birthing process may result in quicker recovery, less medical intervention, and fewer complications with later urinary incontinence, organ prolapse, pelvic pain, and misalignments.

 

Postural benefits may alleviate lower back pain associated with uncontrolled pelvic tilt and sciatic pain.
