The 2 Day Practitioner Workshop is designed for rehabilitation professionals who would like to teach their clients the functional aspects of essential stretches and floor exercises.
These exercises are specifically chosen to address the most common rehab situations – such as lower back pain, shoulder and hip disfunction and a weak core. The approach is to teach the practitioner the fundamentals of specific movement with a view to progressing the client where they are able to manage a routine by themselves.
The course is conducted by Allan Menezes, the pioneer of the Pilates Method in Australia and author of “The Complete Guide to the Pilates Method” . The venue is held at a Central location and runs from 9am to 5pm (please note: the Melbourne Practitioner Workshop will be held from 8am to 4pm). Bring your workout gear for a fun-filled, informative day! (Lunch not included)
Pay in full 4 weeks or more prior to the course and receive a FREE Menezes Method: Theory & Warm-Up DVD, Joe Pilates’ 2 e-books: “Your Health” and “Return to Life through Contrology” as well as the online DVD “Pilates for Lower Back Pain” from the Pilates Institute.
Courses are designed for physiotherapists, osteopaths, MD, massage therapists, sports science/ human movement students or similar as well as Pilates instructors who have attained Level 3 Floor and Level 1 Reformer.

“Allan is a very professional practitioner who gave 100% of his time and knowledge. He was most approachable and I felt comfortable in asking questions. Learning another perspective on Pilates especially in relation to the management of necks and backs was particularly valuable. I was able to immediately put the principles into practice across the 5 weekday Pilates classes I teach. The feedback was positive. I recommend this course to other Practitioners who want to enlarge their Pilates knowledge”

“I would recommend this course for the high quality of information presented, the experience of the presenter. The inspiration and the dynamic energy of the course changes you in a short space of time in a very positive and challenging way”
Hannah J. Pilates/Gym Instructor
“Far superior than the DMA course (I attended). It is far more applicable and functional to clients that we see than any other pilates courses”
