Our most recent United Pilates Collective Meeting; SF Bay Area Chapter, was held at Absolute Center in Lafayette. Thank you to all those that were able to make the meeting! www.absolutecenter.com
We began with a demonstration by Katie Santos on the new CoreAlign, a great new machine that will soon take the pilates world and beyond by storm. It was invented by Jonathan Hoffman; www.hoffmanconcept.com and will be produced and distributed by Balanced Body; www.pilates.com. CoreAlign units will be available sometime in February. Ken Endelmen from Balanced Body was in attendance to answer any questions about the CoreAlign.
Then, Elizabeth Larkam was kind enough to delve deeper into the cueing on the CoreAlign as well as showing us exercises that are directly translated from Pilates on to the CoreAlign.
Then everyone had a chance to have playtime on the CoreAlign.
The main business meeting followed with a re-cap of the PMA Teacher Training Summit that was recently held in Dallas. You can read the official report and more at http://www.pilates-pro.com/.
We hope to announce the January date for the next UPC meeting soon, we are awaiting confirmation from our host studio. Meetings are held every other month in different locations. For more information, to start a chapter in your area, or to join the UPC; visit www.unitedpilatescollective.com.
