Starting with the foundations and fundamentals of Pilates, we aim to marry functional anatomy with the modified original Pilates exercises in a safe and effective way. In doing so, we provide participants a true understanding of Pilates method and a deeper understanding of functional anatomy arising from that.
This 5 day intensive training course is aimed at professionals already involved in the health/fitness industry or candidates with previous anatomy and physiology training at college level (ITEC level 3 or FETAC level 6).
