FFI™ Workshops

FFI™ Standing Functional Pilates workshop

Details: This 2 hour FFI™ standing functional Pilates workshop is aimed at Pilates teachers and Pilates lovers. In this workshop you will learn:

  • Over 20 standing Pilates movements
  • How to use the Pilates tower or Cadillac 
  • How to adapt the movements with a theraband
  • Closed chain Pilates movements
  • Weight bearing movements to improve bone strength 
  • Full body functional Pilates movements

This workshop will be led by Shane Nicoletti FFI™, Ireland's first male Pilates tutor.

Over the last 16+ years as a Pilates tutor in Ireland I have always maintained that the standing warm ups in your mat based classes are probably the most functional part of your Pilates classes.

When we do standing Pilates movements, the clients are learning to use their bodies in a functional environment, as opposed to lying flat on their back etc. 

This FFI™ Pilates workshop will teach you how to adopt a neutral spine and then add in movements that are functional to life: squats, lunges, pushes, pulls and twists. At the same time we will use springs or bands to challenge or assist us in the movements.

This workshop is ideal for all to do. Pilates teachers can then teach their athletes to add these movements into their strength and conditioning programmes.

FFI methods are not about beasting teams in the strength room with bootcamp style workouts, that would be easy. At FFI we focus on technique, safety and proper training effect. We promote corrective exercise in all our sessions so that we can work on the athletes weak points. If we can spot a weakness in a player and correct that weakness in the strength room, then we are sure we have stopped a certain possible injury on the field of play.
