12:00 PM - Pre and Post Natal Pilates with Lanette Gavran

There has been a great deal of scientific research more recently to do with pre and post natal information. The research is interesting because there is support for both a very conservative exercise approach and evidence that women are capable of a great deal during pregnancy. 

We will present the best Pilates repertoire and programming options for each trimester for Matwork and Studio. In addition we will also cover common issues for Pregnant women such as SIJ pain, pubic symphysis pain, leg and foot cramps, carpel tunnel and back pain.

To top and tail the session we will explore the latest research findings for post natal women - the importance of continuing Kegals post nasally, etc.

12:00 PM - Deborah Lessen's Chair with Lanette Gavran

Deborah Lessen is a protege of Carola Trier and a beloved New York based Pilates Instructor of over thirty years of experience. Her Pilates High Chair is an evolving product of research into one of Joe Pilates experimental chairs that involved a converted wheel chair with springs attached from above the chair, and Deborah's experience with one of Carola's chairs that has long since disappeared from general view. 

Deborah's High Chair is located in the Pilates Canberra Studio in Barton, and the only other of these chairs in Australia sits in the Melbourne Aligned For Life Studio at Moonie Ponds. These chairs offer a very different outcome to other Pilates Chairs using the traditional Pilates Chair repertoire, and also the chair has specific repertoire that has been created by Deborah to maximise the chairs' dimensions and features. 

Lanette has travelled to New York City a number of times to learn from Deborah as well as being involved in the Australian High Chair workshops that Deborah taught in Melbourne in 2017. Much of this repertoire will be taught and explored in this workshop, as well as how to appropriately program using the Deborah Lessen High Chair.
