Pilates and Hip Replacement

In an ideal environment a basic Pilates program should be started two to three months before
the operation. When this is possible it makes the post operative period easier for the client and
helps to reduce the recovery time.
The post operative Pilates program can start either at the same time as the physiotherapists
program or when the client has been signed off from this program. This very much depends on
the physiotherapist and the client. I prefer to start when the physiotherapist signs off the client.
I think it is important to remain in contact with the physiotherapist during the initial stages of the
Pilates program. Pre-operation, Post-operation , nine week stage, twelve week stage and progress to a normal exercise program taking into consideration the protocols set out by the original surgeon. In our case pilates will be the main form of exercise. We should recommend extra activities that will include balance and sensible aerobic activity.

We need to help:
-increase fitness and endurance
-reduce risk of falling
-increase muscle strength
-improve bone quality and strength
-maintain a healthy weight
-reduce risk of other health conditions

activities not recommended after total hip replacement:
jogging. basketball. football. soccer. baseball. squash. hockey
high impact aerobics. martial arts.

Finally, the pilates based program is ideal for the total hip replacement client but the approach has got to be creative.

During the workshop we explore ways to be creative.

Let´s have fun with the „34“ Classical Mat Exersices (5h)

Some schools of thought feel that the mat work routine must be performed in the same sequence that Joseph Pilates laid down in his book ”Return To Life Through Contrology".
Like so many things in life, a routine that is continuously repeated in the same way over and over again begins to loose its focus and appeal and meaning.
Over the many years of teaching I have realised that many of the exercises are unsuitable for the level of experience and for the physicality of many of my clients and students. Initially I teach the less demanding exercises, modified or abandoned others until the client or student is ready both physically and mentally ready to perform them safely.
For the proficient and long term clients and students who have mastered the thirty four exercises, changing the routine,linking different exercises together, making up sequences and working with a partner adds a new dimension to the work. Also, importantly, it creates and element of fun and enjoyment.
While changing the exercises and making up sequences and having fun, it is very important not to lose sight of the original exercise.
The Pilates principles,what ever changes are made to the exercises and to the sequence of exercises, are to be adhered to.

Alan Herdman Workshop

21. March 2020  -  "Pilates and HIP REPLACEMENT"


Alan Herdman: "Once you understand the Pilates philosophies, I personally guarantee that you will carry yourself differently for the rest of your life."

Alan Herdman studied at the London School of Contemporary Dance and was working as a teacher and dancer when, in the late 1960s, he was invited to New York to learn about the Joseph Pilates Method. There he worked intensively with Carola Trier and Bob Fitzgerald, two instructors who had been trained by Pilates himself.

Although well-regarded amongst New York’s dance fraternity, Pilates was unknown in the UK at that time and Alan returned in 1970 to set up Britain’s first-ever Pilates studio. Among his first clients were actors, dancers and singers, but word soon spread as doctors and physiotherapists began recommending Pilates to patients struggling with chronic injuries. Alan now lectures on Pilates around the world, and he has written several successful books, including The Pilates Directory (2004), The Gaia Busy Person’s Guide to Pilates (2003), Pilates for Men (2007) and The Complete Pilates Tutor (2014). He runs a training course for Pilates instructors in London and supervises courses in both Athens and Istanbul. As well as running his own studios, he and his assistants teach in dance schools and designated Pilates studios internationally.
Alan is the Chair of Pilates Method Alliance UK Chapter, designed to foster professional interaction and continuing education opportunities for Pilates professionals. He is invited each year to present at the PMA Conference, as well as Balanced Body’s international Pilates On Tour.

"Breast Cancer Recovery through Pilates"
"Everything a teacher should know about breast cancer and rehabilitation in a 2 days course. How to help a woman after mastectomy and during the journey of reconstruction."

Mastectomies and breast reconstruction surgeries are on the increase in recent years, since breast cancer affects far too many women.

Early detection tests for breast cancer can save lives. The same applies to mastectomy, which even though “uncomfortable” has helped thousands of women to “get back” to their lives.

When a woman has a positive attitude towards surgery, she feels the same about reconstruction. Moreover, psychological support is significant the same as exercise which has to begin 4-8 weeks after surgery It is necessary to say that mastectomy does not affect the muscular system at all. Reconstruction can cause the muscle to shift without sacrificing muscle structure. Bear in mind that mastectomy itself is not associated with movement development. Any kind of exercise and especiallyPilates as well as Yoga, which is possibly the most integrated exercise and spiritual balance system, is the ideal choice for women having undergone mastectomy.

The Crawling Fitness® Training:

  • Builds the musculature of the body with its three - dimensional movementsentire body and promotes coordination and flexibility.
  • Trains strength, suppleness and flexibility
  • Trains abdominal, back and shoulder arm muscles maintaining the natural curvatures of the spine
  • is a functional body training without weights in functional muscle chains
  • is a coordinatively demanding fitness training
  • is fun and also offers for the experienced fitness fan one challenge.

Crawling Fitness® training is an intelligent workout that trains the body and brain alike. It detects compensatory creep paths and compensates for them through the even use of arms and feet in contact with the ground. The organism thus uses its feedback loops and thereby receives information that represents an extension of the range of motion. The resulting stability keeps the body in balance and spares it from minor injuries.

Through its three-dimensional exercises, the training places a strong focus on activating the spine and thereby improving the supply of muscles and organs.

The Crawling Fitness® training is an ideal complement for u.a. Yoga, Pilates, Gyrokinesis and other body training methods.

PILATES Trainigsworkshop für Radsportler

Für Radsportler, egal ob Rennrad oder Mountainbike
Kursleiterin: Nadine Teiwes (selbst aktive Rennradsportlerin)
Wann: TBA - Auf Anfrage
Zeit: Sa 10-13Uhr
Wo: Dynamic Arts Studio |  Kartäuser Str. 13
Wieviel: 50€
Welcher Radsportler kennt das nicht:
  • verspannter Nacken,
  • Ziehen im Rücken,
  • zu wenig Kraft auf der Pedale auf langen Strecken,
  • verkürzte Hüft- und Beinmuskulatur?!

Sicher merkst du gerade bei langen Fahrten die Auswirkungen der Radposition, das ist ja auch normal, aber auf kurzen Strecken muss das nicht sein.

Dein Körper dankt dir für Ausgleich und Unterstützung:

  • öffnende,
  • rückenkräftigende Bewegungen
  • Streckung der verkürzten Hüftbeuger

Gleichzeitig profitiert neben deinem Körper auch deine Radleistung davon:

  • effizientere Kraftübertragung auf Beine und Pedale
  • längeres Halten der Fahrposition
  • mehr Kraft aus Rumpf zur Verfügung

So lernst du hier im Workshop welche Übungen sinnvoll und effektiv sind und wie du sie sauber ausführst und lernst auch verschiedene Geräte und Hilfsmittel kennen- manche auch zu Hause einsetzbar, manche nur hier vor Ort

Pilates - Mein Hallux - Mein Fuß - Mein Bindegewebe

Für Jederfrau und Jedermann

(Oder wie Pilates Training und Co. hier unterstützen kann)

Einer der Hauptgründe für Hallux Valgus Probleme liegt laut Experten in der Neigung zu schwachem Bindegewebe sowie zu laxen Bänder- und Kapselstrukturen des Fußes.

Auf der Hypothese, dass sich diese Schwächen nicht nur auf die Fußgelenke beschränken, und warum Frauen, bedingt durch ihren Zyklus besonders anfällig sind, baut sich dieser Workshop auf und möchte so auch wieder die Verbindung der Füße mit dem ganzen Körper herstellen. In Theorie und Praxis werden wir uns dem Thema Füße im Allgemeinen und dem Hallux Valgus, 1. bis 2. Grad im Speziellen von dieser Seite annähern. Sie kennen ihren Ausprägungsgrad nicht? Spätestens nach diesem Workshop werden sie es wissen und mit einigen Infos und Anregungen im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes wieder einen Schritt weiter sein.

Pilates & Faszien

Für Jederfrau und Jedermann

(Oder wie Pilates Training und Co. hier unterstützen kann)

Joseph Pilates wollte schon damals mit seiner Methode nicht einfach einzelne Muskeln trainieren, sondern immer den gesamte Körper fördern. Was in vielen Aspekten im Pilates-Training fester Bestandteil ist wird heute durch die neuesten Erkenntnisse aus der modernen Forschung wissenschaftlich untermauert: das Miteinbeziehen des Bindegewebes, speziell der sogenannten Faszien ist der Schlüssel zu einem außergewöhnlich wirkungsvollen ganzheitlichen Training und geschmeidiger Vitalität.
In diesem 10-stündigen Kurs haben Sie die Möglichkeit ein in diesem Sinne verfeinertes Pilates-Training kennenzulernen. Wir werden elastisch federn und hüpfen, uns strecken, dehnen und räkeln, dabei Kraft und Stabilität weiterhin fest im Blick behalten.

mit Cordula März-Brendel (BASI-Pilates Trainerin)

Bitte Trainingskleidung und Handtuch mitbringen, da wir getreu dem Motto "Reden ist Silber, Bewegen ist Gold" mit einem halbstündigen Workout beginnen!

Kursdatum: TBA - Auf Anfrage
Kurszeit: Sa 10 – 13h
Kursort: Dynamic Arts
Kursgebühr: 55,- € (zu zahlen am Kurstag)

Wer Lust hat nach dem Workshop, oder auch ohne Teilnahme an einen 10er Allegro Kurs zum Thema „Fuß“ oder "Faszien" zu belegen, kann das gerne melden. Nicht vergessen, es können nur 6 Teilnehmer an einer Allegro-Gruppe teilnehmen.
