Title – The Jill Hinson Method for Breast Cancer Teacher Training Workshop
Presenter – Jill Hinson
Breast cancer effects 1 in 8 women (1 in 833 men), which means it is likely you will have clients who will be diagnosed with breast cancer or will come to you as a survivor. The Jill Hinson Method for Breast Cancer Teacher Training Workshop will offer you a toolbox of knowledge about breast cancer and how to safely teach clients afflicted with this disease. You will be introduced to breast anatomy, subtypes and stages of breast cancer, breast cancer surgery, breast reconstruction, chemotherapy, radiation, lymphedema, and exercise after surgery.
While encouraged to teach with compassion, you will learn contraindications, modifications, and tips for working with a client who is battling breast cancer. You will learn how to measure for lymphedema and how to assess ROM, and receive case studies to explore. We will have fun with movement while learning the 10-Week Method created by Jill to offer a studio or home-based fitness program, working four components of exercise important for all bodies; this includes aerobic, ROM, balance, and strength training with Pilates.
This workshop will briefly introduce you to Core Compassion Compassion Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit offering post-rehab Pilates scholarships, and how you can get involved.
Time – 9:00am-3:00pm

Title – The Organ to Spine Connection
Presenter – Amy Taylor Alpers
The human spine is amazing. It’s strong and flexible and powerful. It houses and protects the entire spinal cord, and it also includes openings for all the spinal nerves to exit the spine and innervate every organ in the body. We know that Joseph Pilates was clear about how important a healthy spine is. He wanted you to bend front, back and sideways, twist, and roll it. He said “If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.” Why is this so important though? What difference does a strong, flexible spine actually make to your health?
In this workshop we’ll explore how each vertebral segment of your spine correlates to specific areas of your body, especially organs. A spine that articulates beautifully – naturally and normally as it was designed – therefore stimulates and cleanses every organ and system in your body. Then we’ll look at Pilates exercises from this perspective – discovering how Pilates affects health by directly affecting specific organs through spinal articulation, and consequently how tightness, rigidity, fear, and lack of flexibility at any place in the spine would directly negatively affect certain organs and systems as well. From your brain to your lungs to your colon, from your endocrine to your circulatory to your digestive system, and more, a healthy, flexible spine is the key to your whole body health in so many ways.
Time – 9:00am-3:00pm
