Intermediate - Springboard, Mat & Props


This class is taught by:

Dixie Mills

Senior Certified Pilates Instructor.  

Dixie Mills has been teaching Pilates for more than twenty years. In 1993 Dixie became certified through the Pilates Center of Boulder, while pursuing an MFA in Dance Performance & Choreography from the University of Colorado. After graduating from both CU and The Pilates Center, Dixie got a chance to teach some of the healthiest and most athletic people in the country. The following year she moved to Seattle where she got a chance to stretch her rehab skills teaching at a studio near Microsoft. Dixie also worked with many teenagers in the Seattle area on building strength and coordination to support their sports or dancing pursuits (how wonderful to have the alignment, strength, flexibility, and connectedness that Pilates brings when you are young—please consider sessions for your teenager or college student!).

After 5 years of teaching clients, Dixie relocated to New York City, where she developed several continuing education workshops for Pilates teachers. She has since taught in Connecticut, New Jersey, Long Island, Philadelphia, Seattle, Virginia and Hawaii. Known as a teacher’s teacher, Dixie has great eyes for seeing the body’s quirks, and great hands and words for explaining how to reach your best potential.

Adam Lacey

Certified Pilates Instructor.
 
Adam has practiced manual therapy since 1992, specializing in Esalen Deep Bodywork and Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT), a functional movement assessment and training modality. Adam started his personal Pilates journey with Jennifer Eisele, who teaches Pilates at Agile Monkey and is a bodyworker specializing in Rolfing. Jennifer offered Pilates as an ongoing movement education to maintain the benefits of Structural Integration - Adam was inspired by the benefits of combining the two modalities and pursued advanced training in both. Adam is now a certified Pilates Instructor and is also training on the CoreAlign to further increase his understanding of functional movement.

 

Adam sees Pilates and CoreAlign as ongoing movement practices that perfectly compliment Structural Bodywork. With extensive anatomical training, and a keen eye for assessing postural imbalances, Adam brings great attention and focus to each private session and group class that he teaches.

 

Adam has been an uninhibited mover his entire life, enjoying climbing, hiking, biking and dancing. His ongoing movement practice includes Pilates, CoreAlign, Kundalini Yoga, improvisational dance and cycling.

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).
