Foundational Core Workshop 
Workshop Learning Objectives + Anita's bio
 
Learning Objectives
  • The deep connections of breath support, core support, organ support and spinal tone are accessible if we quiet down the outer turning into the inner core.  Accessing core connections helps to free up our joints, facilitating free and fluid movement.
  • Learn the differences between deep and superficial tissues, moving through ways of accessing the diaphragm, transversus abdomominus, multifidus, pelvic floor, psoas and all the organs (contents) within the abdomen, bringing awareness to our inner landscape sensing on another level.
  • Learn key foundational +  functional movement concepts that can be integrated into your practise as well as to share with your students if you teach.
Anita Seiz is a movement educator. She comes from a background of dance in classical and contemporary styles. She began teaching Pilates 12 years ago having graduated from Boditree's comprehensive program in 2002.
In 2004, she graduated with distinction from Long Beach Dance Conditioning's Advances in Pilates Technique training under Master Instructor, Marie-Jose Blom.
This prompted further study under Eric Franklin, who emphasizes postural and biomechanical imagery techniques - she certifed in the Franklin Method in 2005.
Anita received her certification in Movement Analysis (2008) through the Laban Institute of Movement Studies (LIMS). She had the rare opportunity to assist and guest instruct on the Laban/Bartenieff and Somatic Studies Canada (LSSC) Vancouver program under the Direction of Janet Kaylo (2009/10). 
 
Laban Movement Analysis provides a broad framewok through which to observe, cue, and dialogue about movement.  Pilates is the application through which she uses Laban Movement Analysis and Re-patterning to expand movement potential. www.anitaseiz.com
