Description

When I started my Pilates training, I knew zero anatomy. Literally, nothing. I was intimidated — big time. When I began my Pilates teacher training course everyone seemed to talk-the-talk. I listened and nodded pretending I knew what they were talking about and hoped I didn’t get called on. Needless to say, this was not a great way to begin my training. I was in over my head.

I want you to have a different experience. I want you to walk into your first Pilates course with the confidence and knowledge to crush it.

This course will:

  • Build your foundational knowledge of anatomy,

  • Teach you to use the correct anatomical language that will be used throughout your Pilates teacher training courses,

  • Give you the skills to understand the anatomy of an exercise, which will allow you to teach directly to your client’s needs,

  • Set you up for long-term success and give you the confidence to teach with knowledge.

If you don’t know what muscles an exercise targets, how can you give a client a well-balanced, educated workout?

Who this course is for:
  • Individuals with an interest in becoming a Pilates instructor
  • Existing Pilates instructors who want to understand anatomy better
  • Individuals who are interested in learning more about the human body and movement
  • Pilates lovers who want to understand more about the body
