Biomechanics of Pilates Exercises

In this hands-on workshop, Dr. Joe Muscolino discusses the biomechanics of Joseph Pilates’ 34 Mat exercises from his book, Return to Life Through Contrology. For each exercise, what joints are moving and how they are moving is discussed, as well as what muscles are contracting, and how they are contracting, as movers, antagonists, or stabilizers. The biomechanics of modifications are also workshopped and discussed.
