How to "modify" Traditional Pilates for your client using Precautions and Contraindications

  • The Houstonian Club 111 North Post Oak Lane Houston, TX, 77024 United States (map)

Traditional Pilates provides a full body workout for all clients. That said, some clients may have health conditions that we as Teachers need to navigate around. We need to be aware of and familiar with the Precautions and Contraindications as we teach and keep clients safe but, getting them as functionally moving as their body will take them.

In this 2 hour workshop, participants will learn about these contraindications and learn how to break down or build the Pilates exercises to fit these clients needs and still challenge them and get them stronger. Learn and understand why you would omit certain exercises and how to assess for that client that day. Using all the apparatus as well as mat this workshop will give you the tools as well as give you the understanding to be confident and safe with clients.

This workshop shows how by breaking down the exercises, the purpose is still there and the challenge of the work continues for the client. Teachers teaching contemporary, classical or any style will see how to keep their client safe and moving! Includes manual and handouts. 2 CEC's given
