Pilates for Technical Artistic Sports Workshop
Focus on Gymnastics
In conjunction with the Canadian Championship Artistic Gymnastics
Offered by Ann McMillan MS PMA-CPT
The extreme mobility and strength demands of gymnastics convey a unique challenge to athletes, who strive to achieve great range with precise control. Because it improves their core power and alignment, Pilates training can help athletes perform better and prevent injury. They gain better posture and movement control.
In this workshop Ann McMillan shares her insight in combining the latest advances in Exercise Science with Pilates to guide technical artistic sports coaches, therapists and athletes towards improved and healthy performances.

A true pioneer, Ann McMillan was the first instructor to bring Pilates to the province of Québec when she opened the Centre Pilates de Montréal in 1992. She discovered Pilates while pursuing a dance career in New York City in the 80’s, and went on to complete her Master’s thesis in Exercise Science at the University of Montreal where she continues to lecture today. Her graduate work was the first to establish a scientific link between Pilates and improved dynamic posture in ballet dancers.
