Scolio-Pilates® Professional Seminar: Modules 1 & 2

Friday, 30 August - Sunday, 1 September 2024

Sense of Power Pilates is excited to be hosting Pilates ITC’s Continuing Education event and to welcome Helen New, Master Scolio-Pilates® Instructor and Principal Educator for Australia to deliver Modules 1 & 2 of the Scolio-Pilates® Professional Certification Program in Sydney.

This 3-day course was a sell out success in 2023 and is back by popular demand for 2024 having received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback about how valuable, informative and practical the course is for Pilates teachers and/or allied health practitioners.
Read on for all the details about the Modules themselves and register now to avoid the disappointment of missing out on the opportunity to specialise in Scoliosis within the Pilates rehabilitation context.

This course is a building block and lays the foundation for the Scolio-Pilates® Module 2. You will receive a strong base in the anatomy of scoliosis to help you understand what is happening under the skin that creates the changes we see and experience with scoliosis on the surface and with movement. With this understanding, you will be better equipped to make the best scoliosis specific exercise choices.

Topics to be covered include:

  • What is scoliosis? Who it affects and its effects on the systems of the body
  • Experience scoliosis! What it feels like to do Pilates with scoliosis
  • Anatomy of Scoliosis
  • Understanding functional v structural scoliosis
  • Defining the convexities and concavities
  • Theories and laws of movement that apply to scoliosis
  • The first 5 exercises for scoliosis

Prerequisite: Module 1

​We will dive deeper into understanding the anatomy of scoliosis and use that understanding to define the curves of scoliosis (3, 4 and thoraco-lumbar curves). Once we define the curves we can begin to understand how to correct those curves towards neutral. We use scoliosis specific corrections and scoliosis specific exercises to aid us in bringing our clients towards a more balanced system.

The scoliosis specific exercises begin with corrections in the basic positions of prone, supine, side-lying, seated and standing. Once the corrections are applied in the basic positions, we add movement to these corrections either on the mat or with the assistance of the Pilates equipment. Come learn why Scolio-Pilates®, a form of Pilates that allows for modifications to assist the client with scoliosis in the Pilates studio, is now being used by children’s hospitals, physical therapy clinics and Pilates studios worldwide to help with the management of scoliosis.
