PHILLIP BEACH
CONTRACTILE FIELDS WORKSHOP 2-DAYS
17 – 18 October 2020

Phillip Beach grew up in Australia, Nigeria, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea. This poly-cultural perspective fostered a unique perspective on his areas of interest. After more than 20 years in London he now lives in the beautiful city of Wellington, New Zealand.

His workshops explore and consolidate the material presented in his book, Muscles and Meridians: The Manipulation of Shape. Workshops can be theoretical or directed towards physical training and manual therapy techniques that emerge from this approach to understanding movement.

The model is elegant and offers real insights as to how we move. Embryology and evolutionary biology are employed in this quest.

As an experienced Contemporary Pilates teacher and movement educator who ‘bridged’ across to Classical Pilates and continued to study the work of JHP, I would like to share my discoveries which I use with my clientele every day. What I view as ‘Classical Pilates’ today is fairly different to five years ago, or 2002 when I started my first comprehensive training. As I continue to explore various lineages and approaches globally, I do my best to educate clients and the community as to the true / original work.
