MOVEMENT SCIENCE PRACTITIONER: PILATES

Pilates 2.jpg

CHANGE MOVEMENT. TRANSFORM PERFORMANCE

If you are a movement professional working in fitness and wellness, this new series will help you to enhance your offering by understanding your clients’ movement patterns and delivering targeted interventions to promote health and build performance. Utilising techniques developed from 25 years of research and applied in professional sport, you will learn to re-evaluate the way that you observe, interpret, and coach movement.

 

The series will help you to deliver targeted movement retraining, applying principles of movement science to build robust movement for your clients. You will expand your existing repertoire exponentially as you build a more sophisticated movement toolkit. You will gain insight to deliver targeted, bespoke interventions to transform performance, and enhance quality of life.

GET AHEAD OF THE CROWD

This series will not only allow you to attract new client groups but also re-imagine how you work with every existing client. You will see every exercise and its potential in a new way.

 

It is ideal for practitioners looking to elevate their skillset and evolve their business.  These skills will allow you to confidently apply movement science to build robust movement health and ongoing goal achievement.

Above is overview and from there can take two pathways, our MSP Series for Pilates and movement therapists or Fitness Professional Series (coming soon).

PART A

Movement, Analysis

And Retraining

This is the first of a series of modules for professionals working in fitness and wellness to improve movement and performance in their clients with a focus for Pilates instructors and other movement therapists

 

The module represents a part of the Comera Movement Science suite of Movement Science practitioner courses - blending functional anatomy, biomechanics, and neuroscience research for improving healthy movement.

  • Enhance your movement analysis using movement science

  • Give you and your studio a competitive edge

 

FOLLOWING THIS COURSE, YOU'LL UNDERSTAND

  • How you can use a movement observation framework to evaluate patterns of movement in any Pilates repertoire, exercise, or functional movement

  • How multiple muscles contribute to any one particular activity and how changes in patterns of muscle activation and coordination can influence movement efficiency

  • How to apply targeted retraining to improve movement efficiency, using adapted repertoire

  • The principles and processes of Movement Training Strategies for:

    • Alignment and coordination

    • Control strengthening

    • Performance efficiency

PART B

Understanding & Facilitating Movement Options

COMING SOON

Part B will take the skills of observation and interpretation from Part A, refine them, and apply them to a range of different regions. The series will progressively develop practitioners understanding of the muscle classifications model with a specific focus placed on the hip and lower leg, the neck and shoulder, and the trunk.

Part B comprises a series of three modules which cover the observation and retraining of muscle synergies  for a variety of regions of the body, including the trunk, hip, lower leg, neck, and shoulders. The modules are as follows

  • Part B Trunk Synergies

  • Part B Hip/Lower Leg Synergies

  • Part B Neck and Shoulder Synergies

 

These are taught modules with face to face and live online elements. They will each last 2 days.

 

Designed to ultimately enhance the ability to observe and optimally cue each individual, Part B facilitates Pilates instructors to support the long-term, whole-body, movement efficiency of their clients.

PART C

QUALIFICATION &

CERTIFICATION

COMING SOON

The final element of the MSP series sees instructors attain Movement Science Practitioner status. On completion of Part A and the respective components of Part B, this last stage represents an assessment process supported by elearning content.

Part C is the culmination of the MSP Pilates series and, once completed, you will be a fully qualified Movement Science Practitioner. This assessment process will test the skills you've learned throughout this series, providing you with a qualificaton that is recognised across the world.
