Marcia Polas, Occupation Pilates Teacher, NYC
Have you ever been too tired after a day of teaching or training clients to get to your own practice, workout, or even run errands? As movement educators, we do a great job of focusing on proper form within our practices, but how are we using our bodies during all those hours on the job? Let’s face it, standing in a studio or gym for hours at a time cueing, correcting, and watching clients is its own form of workout. Neck strain, forward head position, bunions, and even low back pain can creep into our bodies – even our beautifully aligned, very aware, extremely strong and fit bodies! Before we know it, we’ve developed compensation patterns and put ourselves in jeopardy of all the things we are teaching against.
Occupational Pilates teacher and movement consultant Marcia Polas specializes in studying and retraining clients with physically rigorous jobs to use their bodies in an organized fashion while on the job, recognize the patterns keeping them from being effortless, and release their own fascial patterns. She works with bartenders, chefs, servers, hair stylists, make-up artists, actors, singers, dancers, and YES movement educators all over the country to recognize, correct, and repair the repetitive patterns taking a toll on them.
