Movement Principles

September 14-16, 2018

NEW! 16 hour course. The Balanced Body Movement Principles form the foundation of Balanced Body Education. They include the most important information on anatomy, assessment, biomechanics and foundational exercises needed to become a successful Pilates teacher, personal trainer or movement educator. The course mixes information on how the body works with basic exercises to illustrate the information in movement.

Broken down into five categories: 1) Whole Body Movement, 2) Trunk Integration, 3) Lower Body Strength and Power, 4) Upper Body Strength and Balance, and 5) Dynamic Flexibility, Rest and Relaxation; the Movement Principles provide a solid foundation for training in any environment, with any equipment. You will come away with a complete tool box for effectively training clients to recover from injuries, improve their general fitness and enhance their performance. The focus on practical understanding of common movement patterns prepares instructors to be excellent at problem solving, goal setting and learning new exercise techniques with ease.

This course is currently available as a starting point for any Balanced Body Education program (Pilates, CoreAlign, Bodhi, MOTR) or as continuing education and an excellent refresher for Balanced Body graduates.
