The Red Thread

The book not only instructs how to execute the goal of each exercise, but how to build with variations and challenge each exercise, preparing the body for the next exercise to come.

The Red Thread

The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat gives to you over 35 years of experience in the Pilates Method Mat in one book. The book not only instructs how to execute the goal of each exercise, but how to build with variations and challenge each exercise, preparing the body for the next exercise to come. The book explains how and why to choose a variation to suit the needs of the student. It includes a comprehensive look at the connection between not only the Prior Exercise and the "Thread" that binds them, but the "Thread" that runs through the link between the Spinal Function of the exercise's predecessor. The book includes the purpose of each exercise, which enables you to "break it down" so the Purpose remains unchanged and the Method preserved. The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat offers Teachers tips on how to spot, what to look for, the Don't, Do's and Major Benefits of the exercise. The 1400 plus photos are taken both from the traditional vantage point and from the Teacher's view. The Pilates Method is also presented in easy to read Charts. These Charts breakdown, in simple form, what to "Add Next." This will enable you to create a perfect workout to strengthen what is weak and challenge what is strong. The Charts offer a multitude of vantage points to build the work from. These include Spinal Functions and cover a vast range of injuries. "My hope is that The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat will give both the Teacher and the Student insight into the Method we know as Pilates, the tools you need and elicit critical thinking. I hope it gives the insight needed to understand that the Pilates Method is NOT just a list of exercises and why, at each level of the work, one exercise follows another. The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat presents an understanding that this Method is NOT black and white, but a beautiful colorful canvas as unique as the body before you."

Red Thread of Pilates

"The Red Thread of Pilates - The Mat"(c), by Kathryn Ross-Nash, is a comprehensive resource of the Pilates Mat Repertoire. But it's SO big, it contains SO much detailed information, it can be hard to wrap your head around all of it. The Study Guide is full of tools I created for myself and my Facebook Study Group to help get the most out of "The Red Thread"(c). It's designed to help you do an organized, self-paced study of Kathi's book. You'll find charts and indexes not contained in "The Red Thread" to help you comprehend the different threads and Kathi's Add Next system. Then worksheets for each exercise, detailing all the variations and the Performance Order of the whole repertoire up to that point. Lastly, a Progression Checklist to help you keep track of which of the hundreds of variations you've explored. These tools helped me get the most out of my investment in "The Red Thread of Pilates - The Mat"(c). I hope it does the same for you.

"The High/Electric Chair is a crucial apparatus in the building of a strong Pilates Foundation. I didn't appreciate its versatility until my son came to me with a football player who had shattered his collarbone. This boy was a high school senior and the break had occurred a week prior to opening day. My sons' belief in the Method and his Mother was greater than mine, but he was right. There was a way for me to train this boy, who couldn't lie down and had never trained before. "A Chair is a Chair, what you do on one you can do on the other" was what I had been taught. My Teachers were right. Mat & Reformer were out (no lying down). He couldn't do Baby Chair for obvious reasons. We couldn't do the Wunda Chair...he would have killed himself! So off to the High Chair we went. On this amazing apparatus, where Stability is honed, I translated the entire Method and created a safe workout, while avoiding the injury. The young man was strong and fit when he returned to the field for his final three games, I stood yet again in wonderment of Joe Pilates genius and grateful for the tools he left us." Unique to the Red Thread (R) Book Series, you will not only learn the how of each exercise, but the why, when and what. This book contains photos and instructions that will guide you through each exercise with ease. There are never before seen variations Ms. Ross-Nash personally translated to the High Chair, through the application of her Red Thread (R), that will build stability, strength, Powerhouse, alignment and deepen your understanding of this brilliant method we call Pilates.
