The Pilates Developmental Sequence™

Joe Pilates states numerous times in his writings that he looked at people and animals to help develop his method of body conditioning. In the 1940's and 1950's the physical therapy profession started to do the same process of looking at how humans learn to move in an effort to develop methods to facilitate and help those who were injured, had delayed development as infants or had a stroke or other neurological impairment. The developmental sequence was analyzed and integrated into certain therapy protocols especially for working with infants.

In this workshop we will:
  • Explore what the developmental sequence is.
  • Gain an understanding of why it should be in any exercise regime.
  • See how Joseph Pilates was 50 years ahead of his time by including this process into his method of exercise.
  • Develop an appreciation of how Pilates instructors can use the authentic method to help their clients reach the most functional levels available to them. You will learn how to understand and see how global movement patterns may be deficient in certain developmental processes and how to use the system to help your client retrain and relearn how to move in an integrated whole.
