We all know that the success of Pilates is partially due to the positive effect we make on individuals who come to us seeking improvement of minor aches/pains/injuries. Sometimes we are able to determine their problems are postural or due to poor alignment. However, it is a fact that Pilates Studios are seeing more and more cases of a rehabilitative nature. It can be intimidating if we are working with a client who has an injury or disease that we, as Pilates Instructors, do not understand. We need the tools to be able to create a strategy of what to do, as well as understand what not to do, to avoid exacerbating their condition.   The ultimate goal is that our client will learn to move better, function free of pain, and enjoy efficiency of movement.

Pilates for Injuries & Pathologies is the product of my 17 years of experience as a physical therapist and my study of Pilates with my mentor, Rael Isacowitz. I have witnessed, both first-hand and through research, that Pilates, when used appropriately, can be a highly effective tool for therapeutic purposes. Pilates exercises and principles can help patients recover from injuries and surgery, as well as optimize function in those suffering from chronic conditions. This 3 day course is designed to equip the Pilates instructor with the information and understanding needed to achieve this. BASI is committed to preparing teachers of the highest caliber who are able to perpetuate and preserve the gift of Pilates.

Many Pilates professionals have expressed to me over the years that they do not have a medical background and often lack a clear understanding of injuries and pathologies. They long for practical explanations and exercise suggestions regarding work with injured clients. My course strives to provide just that.

I look forward to seeing you at BASI HQ in October for a challenging & informative weekend!
