Description

One to two percent of the population, mostly women, possesses a significant scoliosis, the lateral curvature of the spine. Using evidence-based sources, learn about the natural causes of asymmetry, studying the differences between normal and abnormal anatomy that define categories, and classifications of scoliosis.

Learn the differences between functional versus structural scoliosis, and their varying causes. Train your eye to the individual differences each client uniquely owns, their “scolio-cues” for correctives. Learn functional assessment techniques that help to direct intervention for the biomechanical implications of curvature not only at the separate spinal curves but throughout the whole body.  Create a profile to help you and your client better understand their present postures and strategies.  

As a Pilates Method Movement Educator, you can and should be part of the modern multidisciplinary care team.  Learn new exercises, modalities and a NEW APPROACH to helping your clients with scoliosis and spinal asymmetry! 

Enrollment Fee includes:

  • 3-day intensive* with snacks and some meals included
  • a certificate of completion and professional recommendations as appropriate

               * Seoul is 4 days. 

For attendees at the Kuala Lumpur Event in August, the cost is $800.  Register with bAlign Pilates Studio in Kuala Lumpur.
