MOVEMENT ANATOMY FOUNDATION PROGRAM

Anatomy Education for Exercise Professionals

 

ABOUT MOVEMENTANATOMY.COM 

A solid understanding of movement anatomy is crucial for success in Pilates and other movement-related professions, regardless of your level of expertise. The better your understanding of human movement and anatomy, the more effective your teaching can be in improving someone’s well-being.

 

Although anatomy is a vital subject for such professions, we realise that it can be daunting, particularly for students who lack a medical or scientific background.

 

That’s where movementanatomy.com comes in. We offer a unique online anatomy certification program that is specifically tailored to the needs of Pilates teachers and other movement professionals.

 

movementanatomy.com was founded in 2021 by Theo Botha and Mark Vella. Our Movement Anatomy Foundation Course was specifically developed to be relevant and applicable to Pilates and movement professionals like you.

 

It is an essential fundamental for anyone studying, teaching or coaching Pilates, Yoga, Barre, ballet, personal training, dance and sports and conditioning, no matter your level, specialisation or experience.

 

You can complete our course with a Certificate of Competence in Movement Anatomy, endorsed by BASI, and can be awarded with 37 Continuing Education Credits from the NPCP. But more than that, you will graduate with a core skill that allows you to work with greater understanding, confidence and ability, to the benefit of your clients and your practice.

“The Movement Anatomy Course provided me with a clear and concise pathway, deepening my understanding of anatomy and movement analysis.”

Heather, United States, 2022

“This course is worth the 100 hours. The content is so well put together, and each chapter just flows so well into the next. The team behind this course are brilliant and really do make learning anatomy manageable & enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to upskill themselves.”

Cassandra, South Africa, 2022

 

“This course was superb in preparing me for my Pilates certification test.
My knowledge gained has made me a better instructor and my clients have benefited from learning their own anatomy as well!”

Julia, Germany 2024

 

“I am a BASI-certified mat Pilates instructor. I took the Movement Anatomy course to deepen my knowledge of how the body moves, and to have a better understanding of the relationship of this movement and the Pilates exercises.

I was impressed with the organised structure of the course. The chapters were clear and easy to follow. There were plenty of images and 3D images. I felt that the course followed a logical sequence so that each chapter added to the ones before.

I really can say that I learned so much more than I expected, and it has really helped in my Pilates teaching. Mark & Theo are wonderful instructors and always ready to answer questions.”

Helene, Netherlands 2023

 

“Thank you both for the patience that you had with me, for the dedication that you showed to all the students and for all the information that you shared with us with such a great passion!”

Daniela, Romania, 2024
