– Learn how to recognize posture deviations and experience that it all starts from the floor and the kinetic chain.
– Know the difference between why we do not start lying on the mat, like traditional Pilates, which can be dangerous for many students with back pain or injuries, and why we start with standing functional tri-plane movements to activate all core muscles.
– Learn all the ‘essential’ movements and exercises to be a truly a fantastic trainer.
– Learn the importance of breath control with all three planes of movement to achieve completely different results.
