Due to the location of this workshop in a high level Rhythmic Gymnastics training facility, we have extended the original single day workshop into a 2 day in-depth dive into the training of flexibility at all levels, from beginners through to advanced performance athletes.
Day One focusses on understanding the nature of flexibility, how to assess each individuals particular restrictions and the order of progression of which restrictions need be worked on for optimal efficiency and safety in flexibility gains. We explore the importance of the breath, how to work with ‘bone-on-bone’ restriction, the nervous system (on multiple levels), the fascial system and the influence of muscle tone on mobility. We explore how each of the components of flexibility can be worked with intelligently to create lasting change in flexibility. The exercises in this level are suitable for all attendees, and many teachers who have not moved well for years discover are surprised and delighted that carefully chosen assessment and ‘treatment’ techniques can open up their range in a pain free way!
Day Two includes a revision of Day One – with a discussion of ways of including the various techniques and progressions in a class situation and we run a ‘real time’ mobilisation session to get everyone feeling great. We also look at seemingly innocent common habits that contribute to a reduction in flexibility. The rest of the day is spent exploring how to use modifications of the techniques to train dancers, gymnasts, contortionists and martial artists into the extreme positions that they require for high level competition in the safest way possible. Safely improving and maintaining extreme range is highly dependent on subtle segmental stability of local stabilisers to control joint position, and understanding this can not only help performers achieve phenomenal range safely, but this can also help extend their career potential, and live a pain free life following retirement from competing. Do not worry if you struggle with your mobility! We will have several well trained Rhythmic Gymnasts along as demonstration models so you will not feel obliged to perform any movement that is not part of your normal repertoire.
2 Day Pointe Intensive – Level 2 Teacher Training in LEIRIA, PORTUGAL
2 Day Pointe Intensive – 23rd – 24th April 2019Progressing onto pointe is a big step for many young, aspiring ballet dancers, signifying a leap into the more professional world of ballet. In saying this, pointe work can be tricky for some feet. While some may find it hard to fully rise over the block of the shoe, others may be dealing with excessive mobility within the major joints of the foot and find that they have very little control over their ankles. Since every dancer is different, the journey onto pointe is going to differ for every dancer.
