Anatomy + Movement

Understand the structure and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments as well as the origin, insertion and action of the major muscles in this course.

To complete your Pilates Certification, you must complete two Anatomy workshops; Anatomy of the Limbs and Anatomy of the Trunk. There is no specific order as to which course to take first.

Anatomy: Movement of the Limbs

Good teachers know the names of muscle groups, great teachers can use their understanding of anatomy to create better programs for their clientele. In Anatomy of the Limbs, you will study all major muscle groups pertaining to your major upper extremity joint movements and muscles and their primary actions in the body. We will then apply this knowledge to the Pilates repertoire. Memorizing the names of muscle groups will not enhance your teaching but learning anatomy while moving your body will.

Anatomy: Movement of the Trunk

Good teachers know the names of muscle groups, great teachers can use their understanding of anatomy to create better programs for their clientele. In Anatomy of the Trunk, you will study all major muscle groups pertaining to your skeleton, spine extension, lateral flexion, rotation, stabilization, hip flexion, hip extension, hip adduction, hip abduction and their primary actions in the body. We will then apply this knowledge to the Pilates repertoire.
