PRACTITIONER WORKSHOP

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. You will also receive the Practitioners Manual ebook which includes specific exercises, and extends the knowledge you gain in the course.

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.

This purely functional approach to Pilates also focusses on:

  • core stability (focusing on lateral core stabilization!)
  • joint stabilization,
  • breathing techniques
  • muscle isolation
  • muscle balancing
  • why exercising with ‘neutral spine’ can be bad for your back!

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 course is held at a Central location and runs from 9am to 5pm over 2 days. 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. Please check with us via  email or call (02) 9410 0274 if you are not sure of your eligibility.

If you would like an in-house Practitioner course anywhere in Australia or New Zealand, we require a minimum of 8 attendees (10 for NZ). Please email ALLAN MENEZES on allan@pilates.net for further details

Testimonials:

“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”

    This was great for where I am in my practical knowledge. The workshop is so clinically applicable in manual therapy private practice – learnt a new range of appropriate exercises to use in my clinic.

  5. 5 out of 5

    Good pre-course information. Perfect daily schedule – gave enough time for discussions + questions. Learnt how important breathing is + how it influences movement + core. Can now teach specific biomechanics in a functional environment to help patients prevent pain + symptoms. Absolutely recommend to learn importance of core + biomechanics of everyday movements!

  6. 5 out of 5

    Would recommend to anyone!! Absolutely fantastic!! Very good explanation of theory + biomechanics behind exercises. Allan was great and able to have time to discuss and run through challenging exercises and progressions + good focus on mobility before stability. I will be using this knowledge in everyday practice to show my patients. A great understanding of the body + simple biomechanics to acheive better stability + mobility,

    Very useful workshop – great explanation and great adaption for pre-fit and progression. The pre-course information presented was great and the daily schedule was followed. The most valuable thing I learnt during the course was the importance of breathing.

  8. 5 out of 5

    The workshop was informative and I learnt that it is important to have constant reminders/upgrades and corrections as an instructor. There was amazing knowledge available and Allan was excellent in providing supervision during the practical part.

  9. 5 out of 5

    We learnt about the B-Line & to focus on breathing techniques. I would recommend this workshop to other people because of Allan’s knowledge.
