This is a practically based course. The course format is comprised of live practical sessions. The course will involve understanding the benefits of Pilates classes and will enable the learner to utilize Pilates as an effective training modality and cross training tool. The Pilates Mat module preserves the essence of the mind-body system of exercises pioneered by the teaching of J.H. Pilates, enhancing it with more contemporary knowledge of exercise science, functional biomechanics, patterned breathing, pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization as it relates to individual life skills or postural scenarios.
This course is presented with an online and practical component. Practical attendance is compulsory. After successfully completing this theory and practically based module, the learner will be competent and eligible to conduct both one on one and group training classes as well as design and develop individual training programs for special populations with postural conditions.
