Pilates with Small Equipment

Included Course: Pilates with Small Equipment

Learn key skills to vary your Pilates classes and engage your students

This 1-day practical workshop is worth 6 CIMSPA CPD / 6 REPs points

The course is packed full of ideas for using small mat equipment to create lively, varied and challenging classes that will really engage your participants.

You’ll learn how to use equipment to isolate and intensify the work of core muscles, and to improve exercise execution by enhancing kinesthetic awareness and understanding.

Written by a team of our expert tutors and including a comprehensive manual to refer to, this workshop is hands-on, experiential and fun! You will learn the skills to teach Pilates based exercises using half-foam rollers, bands/tubing, stability balls, and small soft balls. You will also look at exercise variations using the full foam roller, the weighted ball and the Pilates ring.

We strongly recommend that you buy one of each of the pieces of equipment covered so that you can practise the exercises as you learn. You'll find purchase details in the Pilates shop on our website.
