More about Anatomy Camp
Anatomy Camp is an in depth look at anatomical/kinesiological and fascial studies for aspiring or current teachers of Pilates, Yoga, Dance, Somatics and Bodywork as well as anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the body. Each level is taught in a single weekend workshop and is layered in a way that creates accessibility for all levels of students. We have created a playful way of learning about the body especially designed for tactile learners and movers by combining building muscles with clay, layering them on skeletal models and utilizing the experiential movement study of the Franklin Method. Level 1 is required for anyone in the full Teacher Training Program at Pilates Education Lab. Both levels are highly recommended for all current and aspiring teachers.

Our Level 1 Anatomy Camp offers a “hands on” experience of building muscles with clay and layering them on small skeleton models. Information covered includes basic muscular-skeletal systems with a focus on the muscles that support the spine/trunk, pelvis, shoulder girdle and core musculature. There is also detailed information, taught through the Franklin Method, on the mechanics of breathing, core engagement and the pelvic floor.

Our Level 2 Anatomy Camp offers a deeper perspective on the mechanics of the deep 6 rotators, shoulder girdle, knees and feet. Again, clay muscles are layered over skeleton models to make the visualization easier. This workshop includes some experiential anatomy through movement and some discussion of muscular firing sequences. The Franklin Method is utilized to dive into the experiential anatomy of the Feet and Shoulders. This workshop also delves into the study of our fascial system by identifying fascial lines and the concepts of fascial hydration and dehydration.

Dear Friends of PDP,

As many of you know, we are in the midst of building our biggest show to date – Hover Space.  It will premiere at Z Space in SF Nov. 30th-Dec. 3rd, so please save the date! We are thrilled with the progress on the show and had a successful residency at Z Space last month in order for our fantastic set designer, Sean Riley, to build a prototype of the floating stage.  We are well on our way to completing this exciting show.

We are still shy of our fundraising goals, and are reaching out to ask for support.  We have launched our Kickstarter campaign (kickstarter is an online fundraising platform) and would love for you to take a look.  Whether to donate, or just get a sneak peak of a fun video of rehearsals and the “hover floor”, please check out this web link:

In addition to Hover Space, I have been immersed in Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s latest work, Red Black and Green a Blues, which will premiere at YBCA next week.  See the information below.

Thank you for staying in touch with PDP.  We hope to see you soon.

Marc Bamuthi Joseph/The Living Word Project

Directed by Michael John Garcés
Produced by MAPP International Productions

From 2008 to 2010, Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s the break/s: a mixtape for stage stormed across the U.S. with wildly popular performances in 16 cities. The Washington Post exclaimed, “Rarely do word and movement mesh so seamlessly and elegantly that the audience is left with the thought that drives them. But such is the case with Marc Bamuthi Joseph whose stories put sound and gesture on a single continuum of expression.”

Now, Joseph returns with a new evening-length work building on his signature mix of fierce and poetic text, dance, music and film: red, black & GREEN: a blues (rbGb).

rbGb reunites seven artists from the break/s — writer/performer Marc Bamuthi Joseph; director Michael John Garcés; choreographer Stacey Printz; musician Tommy Shepherd; documentary filmmaker Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi; media designer David Szlasa; and lighting designer James Clotfelter

Joining Joseph onstage is rising star of the contemporary art world Theaster Gates (featured at the 2010 Whitney Biennial, MCA Chicago and the Mllwaukee Art Museum) who created the richly layered and dynamic set from repurposed materials; and triple threat dancer/actor/singer Traci Tolmaire.

red, black & GREEN: a blues is a deeply collaborative performance work that begins with the question “What sustains life in your community?” As both a performance and an immersive installation, rbGb brings forth inclusive, challenging and inspiring definitions of sustainability in the voices of people often excluded from the mainstream “green” movement. Ultimately, the message is clear — LIFE is LIVING.
