Round Out Your Practice in a Barrel Exploration

Blossom Leilani Crawford,  Bridge Pilates, Brooklyn, NY

3 CECs (continuing education credits) from the Pilates Method Alliance


(Pilates teachers only)

During this workshop, we will dive into traditional Pilates and some not so traditional vocabulary on the Spine Corrector, Ladder Barrel and Baby Barrel.

We will look at how their shapes round out the linear exercises in Pilates and give us access to the body in ways that other pieces of equipment cannot.

In equipment sessions, the barrels can be a short addendum to a workout, but, after this workshop, you will see how an entire workout can be done on a barrel and even be improved as a result. We will explore the barrels’ unique shapes and demonstrate how it can be utilized to challenge and align the spine for a variety of students.
