COURSE DESCRIPTION: Learn the Pilates approach to movement with core-centered exercises that create strength and flexibility. The classroom lab dissects why we do particular Pilates Mat exercises with regressions and progressions for patient populations. The Peyow Aqua Pliates basic level program converts the original Pilates approach to standing and moving in the water. By land or by sea, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Pilates Method, and walk away with a full tool kit of applications for patients.



1)  Choose one of the Pilates core principles and teach three exercises appropriate for a patient with lumbar pain.

2)  Demonstrate and compare benefits of segmental spinal movements from the mat and aquatic repertoire.

3)  Explain why the exhale breath on each exercise is not focused on the “exertion” phase in the Pilates Method.
