Course objectives

1. Discover the main PRINCIPLES OF MOVEMENT of the human body through Pilates method exercises.

“Concentrate on the correct movement each time you exercise, lest you do them improperly and thus lose all vital benefits.”
All movements of the human body are subject to certain anatomical and physiological laws. We do not want you to just learn the technique of all Pilates exercises by heart. In this course, we will teach you the essence of each type of movement through the principles of
movement. Soon you will understand that the Principles can be applied not only to the Pilates session. In the pool, in the gym, while running, jumping or doing any kind of physical activity, you can take advantage of these Principles.

2. Study and practice about 40 Pilates exercises in 7 basic body positions.

As a group class coach, you always make a workout plan. Depending on the level of the group, you will choose the load, the complexity of the exercises and the starting positions.You will learn how to choose the following parameters of Pilates training: range pf motion, speed, tempo, duration, type of breath, sequence of exercises. In the workshop we will practice the most effective exercises in each body position. After the workshop you will be able to create your own exercises according to the Principles.

3. Understand the safety features and precautions of common movements during the training session.

Safety precautions must be known to every fitness trainer. Some movements are not recommended for people with intervertebral disc hernia. Other movements will be useful for people with osteoporosis and harmful for those who have spondylolisthesis. In this course, you will receive all the necessary information on each type of movement restriction.

4. Descry the most common mistakes of trainers when working with clients

Disorders of posture, neutral position of the spine and other joints, excessive muscle tension, holding the breath and many other disorders often occur during Pilates session.Your clients have different training experiences and they can’t perform the same exercises the same way. You will learn how to manage your Pilates class so that both beginners and advanced clients will be equally comfortable.

5. Understand the anatomy, physiology and goals of Pilates exercises.

We will explore the following important topics: anatomy of the Spine and spinal joints, spinal movements, physiology of muscle contraction. Posture assessment and muscular balance: upper and lower cross syndromes. We practice Pilates not for Pilates. The goal of training is 

to improve overall health, improve joint mobility and muscle balance. The author of this course calls its approach "Pilates for life". The main goal of this training and the main principle stated by Joseph Pylates himself is the WHOLE BODY HEALTH.

6. Represent group instructor skills: demonstration and modification of exercises, leadership, cueing, time control, class planning etc.

You will learn how to compose a group class program correctly, include exercises in the right sequence, targeting required groups of muscles. You will learn how to choose a safe starting position for the best control of movements during group training. You will learn the author's techniques and apply them in practice during training.

7. Pass the practical exam at the end of the training 

Each participant will demonstrate his or her professional skills. During the first two days of the training, you will perform short tasks, and on the third day you will demonstrate a small part of the Pilates group class.
