Join Kathi for a workout that utilizes a Long Pole to open the shoulders, relax the neck and lengthen the spine. It’s a wonderful workout to do every morning since it gives you a tall, easy posture. As Kathi’s students demonstrate, you can do this workout seated on a mat, low stool, slightly higher on a chair or standing. Each position provides a different aid or challenge to the spine by providing more or less stability for the body. You’ll begin by warming up with shoulder rolls, moving into deliciously opening side bends and then twists, while Kathi explains how to cue for maximum effectiveness as well as what movement issues this work is useful for. Enjoy! For info on training with Kathi visit: KathiRossNash.com.

    I too have learned from Kathi.
    Although, It is my opinion, it is irresponsible of the teacher to be wearing “high heels” during a rehabilitative exercise regimen/program.
    Joe’s work is so astounding to the body that all that teach should be respectful of.
    The fact is well known it was serious business for Joe and expected such behavior from all who entered his gym..

    Kathy is truly a knowledgeable and well known in the Pilates movement.
    I’m sure her clients and others love this show.
    Not sure Joe would approve of her efforts.

    I am a profession as health care provider take what I do serious. Bodyworker, injury specific and teacher of Joe’s original method.
    The women on Kathi’s right is in a obvious injury cycle in her shoulder movement. Without the attention to detail in her *powerhouse could lead to more discomfort/injury.
    The body is truly a miracle and as long as we are alive our cells are regenerating.
    WITH the proper attention during during movement, our bodies will rehabilitate in no time enjoying the deeper levels of exercises Joe developed.
    Lets get real.
