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 module is offered as a part-time or as a one-on-one module. The part-time module is offered twice a year with lectures generally held on Saturdays for 4-6 weeks. The one-on-one module is offered at extra cost as private tuition and suitable times are to be prearranged.
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.
