Continuing Education with Basi Pilates

Pilates for Injuries & Pathologies

Friday, November 30, 2018 to
Sunday, December 2, 2018

This three-day certificate course presents a Physical Therapy approach to working with clients who have injuries, physical limitations, or movement dysfunctions. Focusing primarily on the cervical and lumbar spine, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and foot, the course covers functional anatomy, biomechanics and a review of current literature. Specific injuries and pathologies, such as disc disease, post-surgical conditions, rotator cuff syndrome, tendinopathies and osteoarthritis, are examined. Students learn about precautions and/or contraindications for these conditions, as well as exercise options and modifications to the original BASI Pilates repertoire. Course participants learn safe ways to work with clients who suffer from some of the most commonly encountered pathologies and injuries, via lectures, discussions, demonstrations and practice.

DAY ONE OBJECTIVES:

1. Review anatomy, biomechanics, and current literature related to the spine.

2. Learn precautions and/or contraindications for common spinal pathologies.

3. Understand which exercises from the Pilates repertoire are appropriate for specific spinal injuries/pathologies.

4. Learn modifications to original exercises and/or new exercises appropriate for clients with spinal issues.

DAY TWO OBJECTIVES:

1. Review anatomy, biomechanics, and current literature related to the shoulder complex and hip.

2. Learn precautions and/or contraindications for common shoulder and hip pathologies.

3. Understand which exercises from the Pilates repertoire are appropriate for specific injuries/pathologies.

4. Learn modifications to original exercises and/or new exercises appropriate for clients with shoulder or hip issues.

DAY THREE OBJECTIVES:
1. Review anatomy, biomechanics, and current literature related to the knee, foot and ankle 

2. Learn precautions and/or contraindications for common knee, foot and ankle pathologies.

3. Understand which exercises from the Pilates repertoire are appropriate for specific injuries/pathologies.

4. Learn modifications to original exercises and/or new exercises appropriate for clients with knee, foot and/or ankle issues.

Innovations in Pilates Reformer

 
Tuesday, December 4, 2018 to
Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Anthony Lett, author of the popular book “Innovations in Pilates” will teach and present on the major themes from his book. This 2 day course will cover important themes in the education and development of any serious Pilates teacher or advanced student.

“Innovations in Pilates” details the integration of Therapeutic Muscle Stretching on the Pilates reformer. It has been described as the ‘missing element” in Pilates repertoire and teacher education. Anthony’s course will introduce you to the latest research in stretching biomechanics and neurophysiology in practical ways that will give you new insights into the Pilates system and dozens of new and effective ways of using your reformer. Whether you teach in a clinical or well-being based Pilates model, the work will enable you to increase the effectiveness of your programs and offer and new and exciting class formats. With the latest 3d analysis of movement, the course will also clarify and develop your anatomical knowledge in theoretical and experiential ways.

 

It is going to be a weekend jam-packed with information designed to inform, improve and challenge the way that you think about and teach your Pilates work!

 

This course is approved by the PMA for 12 CECs
