Type: Online Course

Item: C910360CEC

Description

Not all Pilates exercises are beneficial for the general population. You will look at the reformer differently after this session. You'll see how it can be utilized to correct body mechanics, and discover how to analyze postural issues and corrective exercises. This course is for the instructor who wants a deeper knowledge of deviations.
