In this teaching tips video, Lori Coleman Brown and her student Dominique demonstrate how they have been working her shoulder blade and rib connection to awaken the non-dominant side of her body. Dominique has scoliosis which you’ll see is dramatically improved through the muscular activation shown here. The unique tweaks to classical exercises Lori uses will help you to see the possibilities available to you within the system to achieve your clients’ goals. For instance, Lori allows Dominique to find her own internal connection which means at times working a normally square exercise at an angle which helps her to unwind her asymmetry; the lesson being that it can be useful to move away from the cardinal plane for a client who is not symmetrical.

      Hello. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate the opportunity to clarify my intentions and improve.

      My thought here is that this video was made from a specific perspective. The Pilatesology viewer is invited to bear witness to this particular teacher/client relationship. I wanted to show this process in real time. What my holding space for a client to do their internal work in the present moment can look like.
      If you were interested, you could watch again and see if you can notice how and when Dominique responds and changes. This is an area I’m really interested in- tailoring the work to the individual. Sorry if it was boring for you.

      Filming a presentation to move, energize and entertain the viewer is different. I love doing that too!!
