Mary Bowen

Pilates Plus Psyche (Learn to understand yourself and your clients better)
Joseph Pilates addressed the whole body in each exercise. I have added to whole psyche, conscious and unconscious, to the whole body. Hence Pilates Plus Psyche. This workshop can help you to diagnose, deepen and challenge yourself and your client to deeper levels of work. It extends Pilates work to engagement with the unconscious by using Jungian typology, learning our psyche’s structure. Mary will teach the principles of Jungian typology with the tool of graphics. Figuring out our own type and our individual client’s type can give us a blueprint to determine which teaching approach is best and how to understand why we might be having a problem with a client (and vice versa), with staff or with another teacher. 

Remember To Yawn
The goal is natural involuntary breathing. We need to watch the animals and learn from them. Mary will introduce attitudes and exercises for connecting with the animal in ourselves to help to unlock manifold tensions around breathing. Sound will be used as an “unlocker” of the breath. Some discussion will happen around the role of our unconscious in breathing … letting go. How does one let go? This is a huge subject which needs to and will be addressed in taking up breathing. The Yawn is your best hope. 

Lifelong Pilates & The Body Part I
1) Less Effort/More Release and How Aging can improve your Pilates practice: Mary will describe with demonstration her own evolution over 50 years of practicing Pilates, from the over-eagerness of youth to the mellowness which comes in one’s 70’s. Ego is no longer at stake and a greater partnership with the body and respect for what body can teach us emerges. 

2) Less Performance/More Experience: There will be discussion and demonstration of the difference between directing the performance of Pilates exercises and experiencing them, with many examples of both. The goal here is less mind control and more listening to and watching the body, especially the spine’s, capacity for leadership. 

3) More Spine/Less Mind: Introduction of new spinal release exercises using the cadillac as a starting point to experience pure release. Mary will demonstrate how it is not necessary to shrink with aging. Rather if one is motivated to discover and allow spinal release, it is possible to elongate. Just like the cat. Mary will teach the use of springs in various new exercises using the cadillac in order to facilitate an experience of spinal release for those who cannot let go enough to find it for themselves. 

Lifelong Pilates & The Body Part II
1) Breathing: Animal Plus Human – The Yawn, its Enormous Importance: The goal is natural involuntary breathing. Mary will introduce attitudes and exercises for connecting with the animal in ourselves to help to unlock manifold tensions around breathing. Sound will be used as an “unlocker” of the breath. Some discussion will happen around the role of our unconscious in breathing. Letting go. How does one let go? A huge subject which needs to and will be addressed in taking up breathing. The Yawn is your best hope. 2) Chronic Tension Patterns in the Body: As breathing is customarily blocked by tension, so is a natural experience of our bodies. Tensions from head to toe - how to propriocept them, focus on them and learn new ways to release them. 3) The Most Common Pelvic Imbalance: Mary will discuss and demonstrate the most common pelvic imbalances, a variety of reasons as to why it is so and exercises we can learn to do to correct it in order to prevent and avoid pain later in life from pelvic misalignment.

What's Going On With Your Pelvic Alignment
If there is time Mary will discuss and demonstrate this most common pelvic imbalance, a variety of reasons as to why it is so and exercises we can learn to do to correct it in order to prevent and avoid pain later in life from pelvic misalignment.
