Introductory and continuing education workshops are designed for pilates instructors and fitness professionals and are a great way to expand your training and knowledge. Workshops are available through Calgary Pilates Centre which is the STOTT PILATES® Licensed Training Centre for Alberta. Most workshops qualify for continuing education credits from STOTT PILATES as well as other recognized organizations such as ACE and Can-Fit-Pro.
All exercise-based workshops incorporate the STOTT PILATES® Five Basic Principles along with cueing and correcting tips for teaching technique.
Depending on the length of the workshop you choose (from 1.5 to 6 hours), increasingly more material is covered and a greater emphasis is placed on exercise modifications, strategies for designing effective programs and development of cueing, eye training and correcting skills.
We offer workshops on the following:
In our Total Barre workshops you will learn how to apply the comprehensive alignment principles concept used in all Total Barre Programs. This includes understanding how to use the Total Barre template which provides choreography, and tempo for an hour Barre class. As well, discover how key movement segments are broken down in detail to provide optimum biomechanics and explore how to work with music, phrasing and counting as well as teaching strategies, exercise variations and modification to ensure classes are safe and effective for all participants.

This mindful movement workout, developed by the Merrithew Health & Fitness™ team, is based on the foundation that proper breathing is the key to a healthy, nourished and vibrant body. We use the breath to activate movement from the inside-out so we can concentrate on optimizing the core connection and mobility of the spine, hips and shoulder girdle.
