In modules 1 through 4, we thoroughly break down each exercise, including the purpose and goal, muscle initiation and optimal alignment. We look at habitual movement patterns and imbalances, postural assessment, and how to modify fundamental mat exercises for individuals with the most common injuries and conditions, including pregnancy.
In modules 5 through 8, we go further into intermediate exercises, teaching skills, the how's and why's of exercise layering and progression, and how to program based on the needs of the client in front of you. We review the use of props to intensify and modify exercises on the reformer pieces of apparatus and go deeper into anatomy and movement science.
In modules 9 through 12, we bring it all together! These modules takes all the pieces and put it together. We break down advanced exercises into teachable components, cotinue to hone in on teaching skills, discuss advanced programming, and dive deeper into rehabilitative pilates. We discuss professionalism, etiquette, the business of Pilates and social media.
