The Scapulohumeral Rhythm, Rotator Cuff, Shoulder Impingement and Pilates

with Karen Clippinger

(6 NPCP CECS, formerly PMA)

Many Pilates programs focus on the large muscles of the shoulder with inadequate emphasis on the small muscles of the scapula and the rotator cuff that are key for detailed technique and injury prevention. This workshop will increase your understanding of and ability to recognize coordinated and disrupted movement between the scapula and upper arm (scapulohumeral rhythm). These concepts will then be applied to classical and novel Pilates exercises.

Karen Clippinger has a masters degree in exercise science and is a professor emerita at California State University, Long Beach, where her course topics included anatomy, body placement and Pilates for dancers. Prior to her University employment, she worked clinically for 20 years with a wide range of clients in sports medicine clinics and at Loma Linda University Medical Center. Ms. Clippinger has lectured for BASI Pilates for 21 years and has given over 400 presentations for numerous prestigious organizations at various international and U.S. sites, authored a textbook titled Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology, co-authored Pilates Anatomy, and has several classes on Pilates Anytime.
