The Things That Mat-ter Course
In this course we will take you through the repertoire of the Pilates mat work.. The repertoire presented in this course can be used in a multitude of settings; from a Pilates studio, to a gym, to a health clinic. This course is suitable for students beginning their Pilates teacher journey and who are looking for a course that will provide them with more than the superficial mechanics of the repertoire, but rather understand the exercises fully. The work is designed to better allow teachers to modify and adjust the repertoire for clients at different levels and capacities.
The course is also intended to provide existing teachers with an opportunity to review their repertoire, cues and modifications. The course provides teachers an opportunity to reflect on their experience as teachers and to help them draw the connections between the patterns of movement that go beyond performance of exercise. We want to teach you to recognise patterns within clients’ bodies and in the repertoire itself. The course has clear guidelines for each exercise showing the focus and purpose, teaching tips, modifications and contraindications.
The principles are overlaid to allow teachers to understand how to progress a client through various levels and relate the exercises to each other and to understand how these relate to other exercises on the mat and apparatus. This course is designed for movement and fitness teachers as well as allied health practitioners who are wanting to draw deeper connections from the movement patterns that they observe on a daily basis.
The course consists of several sections including:
Section 1 – Pre-Movement Principles
Section 2 – Pelvic Curls
Section 3 – Supine Sagittal work
Section 4 – Supine Transverse work
Section 5 – Seated and Rolling
Section 6 – Side Lying
Section 7 – Points, Planks and Pikes
Section 6 – Prone
In each section there is a series of videos for each exercise progressing from a beginner level exercise to more complex exercises involving coordination and endurance. At the end of some sections we have included a video with a flow showing how the various exercises can be built on each other to create a series.
At the end of the course there will be a quiz which you must complete in order to receive your certificate of completion. You will also find various program sheets at different levels that can be used as a guide for how to make a program and for practice.
