Pilates for Scoliosis
Pilates for Scoliosis, a 2-day workshop with Erin Myers, offers invaluable training for Pilates instructors working with scoliosis clients. You’ll learn to analyze scoliotic bodies, create diagram sketches, and place pads to help decrease rotation and lateral curves. Scoliometer usage is taught in conjunction with how to apply that data to corrective movements.
Erin’s research backed scoliosis movement principles are taught, empowering both the instructor and client to confidently workout together and for the instructor to safely give at-home exercises to the client. Muscle testing is covered to help you figure out what muscles need to be worked, and what need to be released. This guides the instructor to help their client get out of pain, can help stabilize curves, and will help the instructor to develop a game plan for the initial lessons and years of subsequent lessons that will follow. Certificate of completion given at end of course.
Hosted at NeXa Studios May 27th and May 28th, from 9am-4pm each day.
