Anatomy & Physiology

If you don’t have any Pilates teaching experience and you’re starting your Pilates career from the beginning, welcome! This online Anatomy & Physiology course provides an in-depth introduction and everything you need to know to get started and succeed in this component of your teacher training.

You will need an introduction to anatomy & physiology before you begin your course. If you do not yet have a reasonable knowledge of anatomy and physiology, we suggest an eLearning module from YMCA/CYQ that you can purchase via our online store using the BOOK NOW button to the right.

Alternatively, every few months we offer a pair of Anatomy & Physiology workshops offering a practical and playful introduction to the human body.  They are designed for prospective Pilates teachers, graduates and practitioners from all schools who would like to gain a basic understanding of the fascial and nervous systems and their relevance to the moving body and our teaching practice.  The next one is on 29th April 2018 – see here for further information and booking.
