Students will acquire a profound understanding of how the human physical anatomy is applied to the movement science.
Principal points of study are:
- The 8 principles of KinetiCode®Pilates methodology.
- Basic principles of Dynamic Postural Alignment and posture assessment: pelvic, rib cage placements, breathing techniques, scapular stabilization, head- cervical placement and correct posture, common types of faulty posture.
- Anatomic movement analysis: axes and planes and movement terminology.
- Movement relation to space: movement directions and possibilities (flexion, internal–external rotation, etc.)
- Myology: study of the muscular system, names, positions and in correlation with the large muscle groups, insertion, etc.
- Myology:study of the muscular systemwith names, positions and relationships of the large muscle groups, insertion, etc.
- Osteology: understanding the two main skeletal sections: the axial and the appendicular skeleton.
- Exercise Physiology: study of the effect of physical exercise, types of muscle contractions and their relationships.
- Components of physical training: sliding filament theory, length-tension relationship etc.
- Training Skills: elements to design programs, teacher skills, etc.
