What are the additional Pilates Kinesiology modules/short courses?
(These modules can be taken as additional modules with the Certificate in Musculoskeletal Anatomy, or taken as separate short courses.)
This focus of these modules consists of examining anatomical and biomechanical relationships within the body during Pilates movements. There is less focus on inert anatomical structures and more on how joints and muscles interact to create movement.
each module/short course takes approximately 3 hours to complete
each module is approved for 5 professional development points with the Pilates Method Alliance
on successful completion of the quiz, students will receive a certificate of completion
Familiar Pilates exercises are analysed as a means of understanding key principles of biomechanics and the complex mechanical and physiologic interactions of muscles and joints that occur during movement. Students will gain a deeper understanding of Pilates exercises, instruction, biomechanics, and an introduction to Arthrokinematics (the study of anatomy, function, dysfunction and treatment of joints and articulations) and Osteokinematics (Osteokinematics describes the motion of bones relative to the three cardinal (principal) planes of the body: sagittal, frontal, and horizontal.)
Our goal is to help you to grasp these basic concepts with simple dot points wherever possible, and 3D imagery so that you can expand and apply them to any Pilates or movement-based instruction. In essence, you will come to understand Pilates exercises with far greater depth as well as the principles of functional anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology.
Having developed a good anatomical background in the “General Principles of MS Anatomy” course, (or another similar course) students learn to transform the static images of human anatomy into dynamic, three-dimensional movement, and to understand what happens in this miraculous process.
