Pilates for Scoliosis


Pilates for Scoliosis with Level III Master Instructor Jessica Schultz- 3 CECs

Scoliosis affects six to nine million people in the U.S. alone. Learn how to help clients with this common misalignment of the spine using props you probably already have in your studio. Learn the difference between a C-curve and a S-curve, and how to approach those clients individually using traditional mat and Reformer exercises. Scoliosis can be intimidating to both properly diagnose and teach in a traditional Pilates session. This course will make it simple and give you the tools to confidently modify sessions, communicate with clients and create a workout plan that improves posture, alignment and quality of life.

Course Objectives:

1. Learn the difference between a C-curve and a S-curve and how to approach both when working with a client.

2. Learn how to help a client stabilize and balance their spine when performing traditional mat and reformer exercise with towels, small balls, and wedges.

3. Learn what homework to teach a client, including specific breathing patterns, to practice in between sessions so they can continue to improve their posture and alignment.
