In this video Moses Urbano demonstrates how to conduct a lesson with a healthy beginner. Moses goes over important questions to ask the client, and explains why and how he designed the workout based on the answers received. After assessing his student Tim's condition on the Reformer, he conducts the rest of the lesson on the mat with focus on engaging the Powerhouse and increasing flexibility in the spine and hips. You'll get a good idea of how much attention to give the client's individual needs, how to cue, and how much emphasis to put on technique without overwhelming the student and sacrificing movement - the perfect cocktail for making your beginners feel accomplished and craving more!

    A few years ago Moses was visiting a friend near my home in Florida and was kind enough to stop by my studio to give me a lesson just before heading back to the other coast. I learned so much from him in that one lesson and I learned a lot from watching this lesson today. He demonstrated some fresh ways to break down the exercises for beginners. Moses is a gift to the Pilates world!

    One of the best pieces of Instruction I have seen of the combined and co-ordinated use of the hip movement in the Pilates Mat Methodology.
    The Gentleman demonstrating must be any Instructors delight!
    Can we possibly see much more of Mr Moses Urbano detailed Instruction of the entire Mat series of exercises?
    Thank you indeed Mr Urbano.
