The trapeze serves as a special part of the training on the Pilates Trapeze Table. The addition of the sling has evolved over the years into a useful teaching tool for focusing on spinal movement with stability and mobility. Madeline Black will lecture on the balance between mobility and stability of the spine. Classical use of the trapeze will be presented with specific cues for enhancing the controlled movement of the spine. Along with James D’Silva, Madeline Black will demonstrate a series of innovative movements using the sling for balancing the strength and mobility of the spine.
