Intermediate - Springboard, Mat & Props


This class is taught by:

Irina Semionova

Certified Instructor.
 
Pilates for Irina is an adventure of physical and mental discipline. Irina was introduced to Pilates by her friend (and future teacher) in 2008. This event completely changed her life direction. Since then, she has been working on improving her body movement and physical capabilities.

Growing up in Russia, Irina always actively engaged in physical exercise like swimming, figure skating, running, tennis playing. After immigrating to America Irina experimented with many different workouts but never felt at home until discovering Pilates. After five years of practicing and learning how much Pilates has to offer, Irina, with the support and encouragement of her mentor enrolled in the 2013 Balanced Body Pilates Instructor training program. After broad training she graduated in 2015 and was certified in 2016.

Irina believes that Pilates is an improvement to anyone’s life style and she hopes to share this knowledge and experience with others. She understands the practice of Pilates can be of benefit to both teacher and client. Irina believes that Pilates is a life time journey. She is also aware that with practice she and her students are prepared to face the future with confidence.

Cody Jussel

Senior Instructor.
 
Cody discovered Pilates many years ago as a means of enhancing her dance practice and overall body awareness for more efficient movement. However it was not until the birth of her daughter in 2007 that she got serious about her Pilates practice. Not only did Pilates help her rebuild strength postpartum but also allowed Cody to discover a deep inner body connection that helped bridge the inner and outer world, connecting mind to body in the most profound way. Cody has taught the Pilates method since 2007 and has had the opportunity to work with a broad spectrum of clients from professional athletes post-surgical rehabilitation and everyone in between.
 
 
Cody holds a master’s degree in kinesiology with an emphasis in adaptive sports and orthopedic rehab/corrective exercise and is certified through the Midwest Pilates Institute teacher-training program, formerly a branch of Core Dynamics, in mat and all apparatus, as well as a post certification study in Mastery Technique from Kathleen Konklin. Additionally, Cody holds a certification from the Pilates Method Alliance, the national certifying board for Pilates instruction in the United States.
 
 
Cody is a level 1 CrossFit trainer and has obtained continuing education credits in Rock Tape application, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Functional Movement Assessment (FMS), and has spent over 500 hours of observation in various physical therapy clinics.
The wall mounted springboards are a great way to get a total body workout utilizing springs based resistance (which can make exercises more achievable and also more challenging, depending on the circumstance and level of the class). The springboard repertoire was originally modified from the original Cadillac exercises, but has been expanded to include familiar favorites from the Mat and Reformer, as well as a lot of exercises you can’t do anywhere else. Most Springboard classes also include some Mat and & Props repertoire for flow.

Intermediate - Pilates experience required. Intermediate level exercises will be the focus (with any necessary modifications).
