. Sandy Shimoda
This class on the Chairs, Barrels and Pedipole is directed at Pilates instructors who are looking to enter Vintage Pilates’ teachers program: The Work, led by First Generation Teacher Jay Grimes. The class covers the exercises and skills that are required for entrance into the program. (There are 3 videos on this topic. You can find the other 2 here: Chairs Flow Assessment & Barrels Flow Assessment). Sandy takes Andrea and Ken through the session as she would for an actual assessment, watching to see that each of them know how to set up, how to practice the exercises, and how they might adjust the exercise for their own body. She also offers notes on what she is looking for in an assessment, for instance, where a movement originates or what she wants to see in a body as it works. Apparatus covered includes: Spine Corrector, Large Barrel, Pedi Pole, Wunda Chair, Electric Chair.
