Every Body Pilates Offers Workshop with Irene Dowd


Every Body Pilates, in Belmont, will host a weekend workshop with anatomist, dancer and movement-imagery pioneer Irene Dowd on March 10 and 11. Dowd will present her workshop, “Our Dynamic Pelvis,” on the musculo­skeletal anatomy of the lower trunk, pelvis and hip joints. Students will experience the movement possibilities of the pelvis and discover the most effective muscular-use strategies. “This will be a Pilates-based exploration of the many ways in which our pelvis functions to both enhance the freedom of our limbs and the stability of our core,” says studio owner Kirsten deFrees.

Every Body Pilates is also offering Redcord suspension exercise lessons for both groups and individuals and will soon feature Redcord education for movement professionals. “Redcord has two vertical suspension points, which allows 360 degrees of mobility to build greater strength in multiple planes of movement,” says deFrees. “These exercises can isolate and stimulate impaired neuromuscular connections and create balance between muscular and joint systems.” Redcord can be useful for chronic pain, injury recovery and athletic-performance enhancement.

Every Body Pilates is located at 50 Leonard St., Ste. 2A, in Belmont. For more information, call 617-484-3311 or visit
