Anatomy & Physiology Starter Course for Pilates teachers and students

This anatomy and physiology online course provides a practical introduction to the human body.
It is designed for those planning to undergo Pilates teacher training who have no pre-existing  anatomy knowledge.  It is also suitable for students and graduates who feel they lack this fundamental understanding, or would like to revisit the basics of the skeletal and muscular systems and their relevance to movement.
Students can expect to finish the course with a much better anatomical understanding  of the meaning of commonly used terminology you will hear and use from the very start of your Pilates teacher training.
Unlike many anatomy courses, this is specifically designed for prospective Pilates teachers and movement professionals. You will learn about the human body and it’s relevance within the scope of the Pilates teachers practice.
The workshop is split into two sections:
  • introduction to the muscular system
  • introduction to the skeletal system
You will gain a basic understanding of:
  • The human skeleton: bones, joints and relationships between them
  • Planes of motion such as “frontal”, “transverse” and “Sagittal “ A’s well as joint action such as flexion, extension, pronation, supination and so on
  • Muscles, their locations in the body and their functions
  • Muscle contraction types – concentric, eccentric, isometric
