PILATES INSTRUCTION AND PRACTICE

Make the connections in the Pilates work by understanding how the exercises are linked through your fascia from one end of the move to the other. As a Pilates teacher, Anatomy Trains will let you see where your clients are not moving, so you can cue them to full participation.

How Do I Start?

Kickoff your education with Anatomy Trains by reading Anatomy Trains Fourth Edition by Tom Myers. You’ll learn how the muscles are functionally linked in ‘myofascial meridians’ through the fascial webbing.

We also have a number of On Demand Learning courses geared towards movement professionals available on our website here.
