Location: Nicole Piller Pilates & Yoga Studio: 6 Woodrow Ave., Toronto
Pelvic Power for Core Integration: (1:30–3:00 pm)
This workshop will provide you with an understanding of the pelvis, how the bones of the pelvis move, and how balanced movement of the pelvic bones not only supports healthy function and alignment of the pelvis and organs, but also of the spine, knees, shoulders and feet. In this workshop you will learn:

- Effortless alignment and balance for the pelvis and the whole body by learning and having an embodied experience of how bone rhythms of the pelvis create safe and efficient movement.
- How the pelvis supports good posture and how to train good posture.
- Increased freedom and flexibility in the hip joints, low back, and even the knees!
- How to effectively work and strengthen the pelvic floor using imagery with ball and band exercises, and in everyday activities (no equipment required!).
Healthy Spine: Imagery & Exercise for a Healthy, Strong & Flexible Spine: (3:30–5:00 pm)
The spine is a masterpiece of design that has many muscles, ligaments, and over 100 joints. Many people suffer from debilitating pain associated with the spine. In this workshop we will look at what influences spinal health, the design and functions of the spine and use imagery with movement exercises to increase mobility, strength, decompress the spine and relieve tension.
In this workshop you will learn:
- Imagery exercises to strengthen muscles, joints, and intervertebral discs of the spine.
