As a Pilates teacher it is important to understand that experiences imprint themselves on the body. Every body has been injured in some form or another and some more than others. More and more we see our clients coming to classes with every day or acute injuries and so it is necessary, if you want to be a great Pilates teacher, to have an understanding of these injuries so that you can truly help people move better and ultimately heal.   In this weekend intensive we cover a vast repertoire of the more common injuries we keep seeing as instructors in this modern world. We will explore what happens in the body with these injuries and how to treat them to the best of our ability with assessment, analysis and movement. 

We will look at: Strains and Sprains; Osteopenia/Osteoarthritis;  Disk Herniation/Degeneration and Facet Compression; Bursitis, Rotator Cuff Tendinosis; Plantar Faciatis; Hip Replacements; The Knee: Arthritis, Replacement, Alignment, Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) tears; Pregnancy (this is not to replace pre and post natal training) .

These are just a few examples the variety of impairments your clients may have.  Even when presented with a case not on this list you will be able to know what to look for and how to research thoroughly. We will teach you to be able to asses your clients thoroughly and to deal with all injured clients sensitively and with confidence, to help them move better for their body and all of its beautiful nuances.
