Cadillac Fun (9a-1p)
In this exciting workshop, Blossom will explore the classical repertoire along with simple and effective twists created by her mentor, first-generation master Kathleen Grant. She will introduce some of her own concepts and exercises based on the traditional vocabulary. It will be a fascinating journey that combines old and new exercises on the largest piece of apparatus. The Cadillac is one of Blossom’s favorite pieces of equipment due to its incredible versatility. Come join us to witness her expertise and see how equal measures of fun and hard work come together on Joseph Pilates’ unique invention.

Wunda Straps (2p-4p)
Join Blossom in this workshop for an introduction to the Wunda Straps, a unique suspension system that attaches to the Cadillac. Kathy Grant took traditional (and not so traditional) Pilates movements and adapted them to the Wunda Straps to use in her teaching for decades. Blossom has found that this simple yet profound work is enormously beneficial for all her clients. They are wonderful props that can help the Pilates practitioner find a better connection between the upper and lower body, while also facilitating articulation of the spine, finding a greater lift in the torso and even addressing some asymmetries in the body. Wunda Straps will be available for purchase.

From The Feet 10a-1p
The health of our feet is critically important, yet rarely discussed. Blossom will share the techniques she has curated over the years to strengthen, realign and stretch the feet. The movements come from her own teaching experience, Kathy Grant, and other Pilates teachers. In this workshop, you will see how the feet are the structural foundation for our knees and hips. We will use our eyes, hands, balls, towels, and pads to connect the feet while investigating their role in balance and strength. We will also examine how the feet play a role in traditional Pilates exercises on equipment like reformer, Wunda Chair, Cadillac, and Barrels in addition to learning strategies for how to better incorporate the feet into your everyday Pilates teaching.

Barrel Exploration 2p-5p
During this workshop, we will dive into traditional and not so traditional Pilates vocabulary on the Spine Corrector, Ladder Barrel, and Baby Barrel. We will look at how their shapes round out the linear exercises in Pilates and give us access to the body in ways that other pieces of equipment cannot. In equipment sessions, the barrels can be a short addendum to a workout. After this workshop you will see how an entire workout can be done on a barrel, and even be improved as a result. We will explore the barrels’ unique shapes and demonstrate how it can be utilized to challenge and align the spine for a variety of students.
