Spring Fling Day 1 (May 4th)


Welcome to our 4th annual Cotrone Pilates Spring Fling!!

Day 1

8-9 Cathy Barker Strack Presents:

1942 Pilates Mat work

Experience the mat exercises as they were taught in 1942. Cathy will use notes from a dancer who took Pilates classes at Jacob's Pillow in 1942. We will turn back the clock and enjoy the selection of mat exercise Joe Pilates taught to the students each morning before they started their dance routines.

9:15- 12:15 Dana Santi Presents:

Front, Side and Back Body

As it is ideal to use all four sides of your body at once, sometimes understanding the focus of one versus the other during specific exercises can be helpful in our own practice and our teaching.

12:15-12:45 Lunch

1-3  Frank Zito Presents:

Upper Body Workshop

The founder of The Men of Pilates Facebook page will present a neoclassical upper body workshop. Included will be presentations on arm springs, trapeze, push up device, and more. Every Pilates practitioner should be able to push and pull their body. Frank will give you the tools to achieve it for yourself and your clients. 

3-5 Susannah Cotrone Presents:

Arm Chair Workout for the Whole Body

The Arm Chair offers us multiple exercises creating a workout for the whole body. Let’s explore the repertoire and then recreate those moves using the wall, weights and Cadillac.

5-6:30 Cathy Barker Strack Presents:

An Afternoon with Joe
