Workshops & Events

The New Year brings great honor to Pilates in Port's studio owner, Tricia O'Donnell.  After 22 years since her Pilates certification under the direction of Romana Kryzanowska and Bob Liekens, she will  be joining forces with Bob Liekens' The Pilates Standard.  
See below for more details.

The Pilates Standard (TPS) was founded by Bob Liekens and Petra Carlsson. The goal of The Pilates Standard is to honor the original method of Joseph H. Pilates, pass on his legacy and create highly skilled Pilates instructors.  Bob helped create the original teacher training program and manual of The Pilates Method in the mid 1990's alongside Romana Kryzanowska, protégé of Joseph Pilates.  He studied and worked with Romana for over 17 years.  Bob, throughout his lifetime, also studied hours of Joseph Pilates archival footage, trained thousands of instructors and  personal clients.  With Bob's passion for the body he went on to study yoga, anatomy, and painting to further develop his eye and understanding of the body.  Sadly, Bob passed away in October 2018.  He had just completed teaching his LEAP program with a handful of senior instructors, including Pilates in Port's Tricia O'Donnell. 

 

It is with great pleasure and honor Tricia was chosen by Bob to join a team of talented instructors to continue his work through The Pilates Standard. Tricia will begin with TPS' Continuing Education Teacher Training Workshops, developed by Bob.   We will begin in February with "Chair Progressions" and in March "Endings".  Tricia has also been honored to be presenting at the first annual Bob Liekens International Conference taking place in Milan, Italy March 2020.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE UPCOMING WORKSHOPS WELCOME
TO ALL PILATES INSTRUCTORS AND APPRENTICES

 

Sunday February 2nd at Pilates In Port

11am-2pm

"Chair Progressions"

COST:  $120

The objective of the Chair Progressions workshop is to review how to incorporate both the High Chair and Wunda Chair into the individual needs portion of the client's session.  This workshop will show how the exercises on the Chairs relate to one another and how to progress from the more stable supportive High chair to the less stable surface of the Wunda chair. This tactic allows the client a deeper experience and understanding of the body, with regard to the central principals of the Method.
