Workshops - April 1 & 2, 2023 image
Pure Pilates is excited to welcome Kelli Burkhalter Hutchins to Oklahoma City in April.  


The Pelvis:  Finding Its Place & Space
In this workshop we will deep dive into the structure and natural movement of the pelvis –and how imbalances like a torsion or scoliosis affect the whole body. We will explore how the body compensates in the pelvis and ribcage and how this can lead to back pain, and hip and knee injuries. We will spend time looking at these patterns to recognize these imbalances. We will discover how to address these issues in your teaching and educate our clients on how they can be more present and proactive in their everyday movement. Learning how to realign your clients on the equipment and mat can help prevent injury and enable better healing after an injury or surgery. We will look at different exercises on all apparatus to explore these imbalances.

Take Your Power Back: Discovering Your Upper Body Power
We will explore Pilates exercises on the equipment to better understand the role of the upper body and develop strength. We will look at some of the missing links that most of us have in our upper bodies and how we can focus on increasing strength in these areas while practicing Pilates. Starting your exercise sequence from these strengths will give a better connection to the whole body. Viewing the Pilates Method through this lens will increase strength and get you closer to uniform development.
