Do you know that teaching with the fascial system provides Pilates instructors a unique advantage? Research shows that fascial lines, continuities and systems create more strength than with muscle tone by itself. Learn about the nature of fascia and how teaching with fascial intent drives efficiency, effectiveness and quality into all our exercises. Teachers will learn not only the anatomy, its importance from womb to birth to adulthood, but also the compensatory patterns that can hinder our improvement.

Learn access, tensioning and decompression methods for these compensatory lines and slings. Pre-activation of fascial lines gives stability to movement. Learn strategies of pre-activation through fascial tensioning of core, spine and extremities.  Come away with a new understanding of how pre-activation in either mat or apparatus work will help us successfully participate in Pilates without injury.

Not just for teachers and Pilates instructors!  ALL ACTIVE PEOPLE CAN USE THIS COURSE!

This is an 8 hour Continuing Education Credit class (NPCP and CaPTA).
