MATWORK FOR SCOLIOSIS
The Pilates Matwork contains some of the most physically challenging exercises ever created! Even the most strong, flexible and intelligent are bedazzled by the classical exercises created by Joseph Pilates. Someone with a spinal curvature often finds the Mat exceptionally daunting, as did I when I first started learning from Romana Kryzanowska. Her genius, kindness, generosity and humor helped so many with scoliosis persevere and learn to love these exercises! Join me as we explore the Pilates Matwork and how to make the exercises accessible to the spinally curved, while keeping them fun and challenging.

About Phoebe Higgins
Phoebe Higgins, PMA Gold Certified, studied and performed with the School of American Ballet, Simonson Jazz Dance Technique, and The Kevin Wynn Collection, among others. From 1967-1968 Phoebe also attended ballet classes taught by ballerina and Master Pilates Teacher Romana Kryzanowska. Phoebe was reintroduced to Romana in 1976 at SUNY Purchase and began working with Romana to strengthen a spine weakened by scoliosis and a spinal fusion. Upon graduation in 1980 Phoebe went to work at the original Pilates Studio, under Romana's guidance. When that studio was forced to close in 1989 she began a program with chiropractor Howard Sichel in his office that over the years evolved into Power Pilates. In 2000 and 2005 repectively Phoebe was approached by The School of American Ballet and Ballet Academy East to organize programs to strengthen their teenage professionally geared students. Both programs proved most successful, with dancers avoiding injury and improving ballet technique. Since 2006 Phoebe has been teaching freelance, both to individuals and in workshops. In 2017 she was asked by her former student and friend Bob Liekens to assist teacher training for The Pilates Standard. This has been most rewarding as we bring this amazing program from Europe back to the USA.
