This two-day continuing education course instructs on the application of the Pilates method for special populations in women's health, including pelvic floor dysfunction (with a focus on incontinence), the pre-natal client (focus on appropriate exercises during each trimester), the post-natal client (focus on diastasis recti) and the menopausal client (with a focus on osteoporosis).

Pilates is a system and philosophy of exercises based on the work of Joseph Pilates (1883-1967) that focuses on precision and optimal alignment. This approach requires the client to focus her mind on the exercise in order to increase motor control. Women are attracted to the Pilates method because of its gentle but effective nature. Offering Pilates as part of your therapeutic offerings is a great marketing tool to physicians and to the community as well as an effective method for instructing specific muscle re-training.

This course includes practical labs with a heavy emphasis on exercise. Participants in this course will be able to utilize all instructed techniques immediately following the course.
