Reformer Intermediate and Advanced-Short Course
This course builds upon your existing knowledge of the Reformer and both Reformer Essentials and Reformer Intermediate and Advanced must be completed in order to be eligible for the government accredited unit of competency PILEQU501 Teach Reformer Repertoire.
This course will introduce an extensive repertoire of Reformer Intermediate and Advanced exercises. You will also learn about using the Reformer for injuries in the major joints of the body such as the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. This course will assist you to effectively use a Reformer in your rehabilitation work as well as advancing clients who require a challenge.
The repertoire we have included in the Intermediate/Advance curriculum covers traditional Pilates Reformer exercises as well as some developed by Tensegrity Training developed to extend students in working their bodies on the Reformer in Multiplanal ways and with attention to spinal articulation.
We believe that clients need to move in all Planes of Movement and be challenged in their transitions between various joint actions and movement processes.
If you want to get out of the Sagittal Plane this is the course for you.
