2019 Corso di Aggiornamento (refresher training)

The 2019 refresher training will be a special one dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the CovaTech® Pilates® Studio foundation.

The course theme will be "The psoas, the neck and the core. Understanding and working with fundamental muscles for the balance".

Outstanding Guest Presenter will be Madeline Black, international master teacher unanimously considered one of the top Pilates expert in the world. 

Also known as the "Teachers' teacher", Madeline Black was able to synthesize the science movement, osteopathy, physical therapy, Yoga and Gyrotonic©, creating a multidisciplinary approach to Pilates.

Her contribution to the 2019 Corso di Aggiornamento is the outcome of the professional encounter with Anna Maria Cova who is also curator of Madeline Black international best selling book "Centered".

Madeline and Anna worked on a theme which unites a double analysis: the one on the posts muscle and the one on neck muscles. Two are of fundamental importance for the body balance and for the correct execution of Pilates technique. Based on that, the 2019 refresher training will be articulated into two workshops: 

  • "The psoas as a core muscle."
  • "Eliminate neck stress in Pilates."
