JPilates Convention 2024
Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th January 2024

With the on-going success of our Annual Conventions, we are delighted to be holding a winter and summer convention again in 2024!

The programme promises to ensure each session provides new challenges, creative movement ideas and up to date research guaranteed to inspire and develop your knowledge and skills as a Pilates teacher in both group classes and 1-2-1 contexts.

Each session will be brimming with inspirational variations and innovative adaptations designed to enrich and enhance your Pilates teaching. You will leave energised and motivated with new concepts and strategies to use with your clients. Join us for drinks after and have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with other teachers.

As always, recordings of the sessions will be available for you to refer back to after the event.

The Programme

The Standing Mat

I first heard of the Standing Pilates repertoire from Kathy Corey who talked of how it once was an integral part of early Mat classes in New York before the exercises were lost to the mainstream. 

Performing the Mat exercises in standing greatly increases the functional challenge, balance, whole body integration and foot & ankle alignment & strength. The series offers inspiration and variations, especially beneficial for those who cannot perform the exercises on the floor.

Proprioception- The Forgotten Sixth Sense

According to the Encyclopedia of Neuroscience, “proprioception, or kinesthesia, is the sense that lets us perceive the location, movement, and action of parts of the body. It encompasses a complex of sensations, including perception of joint position and movement, muscle force, and effort.”

Proprioception gives us the ability to not only carry out everyday activities but also to perform any high-skilled activity. It allows us to move with excellent agility, fluidity, coordination & balance. Without proprioception we could not even scratch our nose as we would not be able to find it!

This session will explore how to improve proprioceptive feedback in Pilates & then challenge it further for all levels of ability.

The Pilates Pole Returns!

Years ago, it made its first appearance at our Convention-and now the Pilates Pole is back with fresh ideas and new variations!

The Pilates Pole (or simply the broom handle!) is such an amazingly simple prop, bringing profound changes in movement as it helps to enhance natural alignment and centre connection taking your client’s practise and technique to a new level.

The Pulling Power of Pilates

Using the force of Pull, this session will take your Mat to the next level, increasing challenge, strength and activation and at the same time, increase awareness and deep connections. Get ready to work every single atom in your body!

The JPilates VIPs

This session will explore how effectively teaching the 3 most fundamental points in all the exercises will bring clarity, simplicity and success to your clients’ movement. It will enhance your observation skills & give you a clear pathway to guide your teaching cues.

“The JPilates convention is a mix of knowledge bombs, Pilates practice and pure fun! Jo covers so much in one day, it was incredible!”
