Pilates Training

For Allied Health Professionals

How Pilates Enhances Your Allied Health Busines

  • Pilates is great not only for musculoskeletal purposes, but also as a cross training tool for athletes, women’s health (pre and post natal), neurological conditions and paediatrics
  • The Pilates repertoire provides you with exercises which bridge between basic activation and higher level, more functional exercises – offering more effective rehabilitation tools for your clients
  • Instructing Pilates gives your hands a break from treatment adds variety to your week!
  • Increase your business’ productivity and make use of dead times in the clinic
  • Physiotherapists earn professional development hours to contribute to ongoing PD
  • Exercise Physiologists earn CPD points through ESSA

How Pilates Can Help Your Clients

  • The Pilates repertoire contains a wider range of exercises and progressions to use for your rehabilitation programs
  • Pilates teaches clients correct abdominal bracing which is essential for spinal health
  • Learn how to get your clients to activate their Transversus Abdominus in all forms of exercise
  • Pilates can be used as a form of corrective exercise to strengthen the weak points of a particular exercise. For example, if a client tends to tip forward or round their back during a squatting movement, Pilates can help target the lumbar spine extensors and hamstrings in an isolated and safe manner that will allow those muscles to increase in strength
  • Pilates helps teach clients how to use the correct mechanics and movement patterns when performing exercise, which helps to prevent injury
  • Fantastic form of strength training to aid weight loss, toning and flexibility
