Pilates for Pregnancy and Beyond
Pregnancy is a highly physiologic state. Week by week a woman's needs are changing, so it is important to be knowledgeable and confident about how to teach these clients. In this 3 hour workshop, we will discuss common conditions associated with pregnancy as well as the postpartum period. This course includes a comprehensive study of pre and postnatal physiology including the musculature of pelvic floor. We will learn how to teach Kegels properly through imagery and breath. You will learn safety precautions and modifications to keep your clients fit and healthy for all 9 months of pregnancy and how to get them back in shape safely postpartum. Diastisis Recti is a common condition post pregnancy and if it is not assessed early the woman will always have a "mummy tummy" or protruding abdominal wall. Many traditional ab exercises can increase a diastisis so it is imperative that Pilates instructors know why to modify for this condition.

Pilates for Back Care
Back pain is one of the most common reasons Americans go to the doctor. In fact, conservative estimates say that 80% of all Americans will experience some sort of back pain in their life! Many people start practicing Pilates as a way to deal with their back pain so it is our job as Pilates instructors to know what common conditions are out there and how to best serve clients who have these conditions. In this 3 hour workshop we will learn about 4 of the most common conditions- Disc Herniations, Sciatica, Spinal Stenosis, and Spondylolisthesis. We will go over what is contraindicated and what is safe for clients who have these conditions. You will learn how to progress a client with back pain and how we can help these clients move their bodies pain free both in and out of the studio.
