Scolio-Pilates® is a three-dimensional exercise program for scoliosis. The program is designed to elongate the spine towards neutral with strengthening techniques to support the spine in its new alignment.

MODULE 1

 

This course is a building block and lays the foundation for the Scolio-Pilates® Module 2: The Professional Seminar. 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

PDP Approved: PAA 8-points

See below for upcoming deliveries. 

MODULE 2

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.

PDP Approved: PAA 14-points

MODULE 3

Prerequisite: Module 1 & 2 and successful completion of a case study.

 

Module 3 is a 4-day deep dive into the nuances of scoliosis specific exercise correction. 

Topics to be covered include: 

  • Review the positioning and wedging techniques from Module 2 while adding to your understanding with more details about how we can encourage the scoliotic spines towards a more neutral patterning. 

  • Understanding the breathing techniques that can be applied to your scoliotic clients as they are either resting or active to open up the space of the lungs to encourage healthy pulmonary function. 

  • Take a deeper look at how the connective tissue is impacted by scoliosis and also, how the scoliosis is impacted by the connective tissue. We will learn how to best have these two systems work together instead of in opposition. 

  • Work with scoliosis models to help assist your understanding of assessment as well as exercise and wedging application. 

Case study: 

  • A sample case study will be sent to you when you register for the course so that you can submit your own case study for review. 

  • Your case study will include a client scoliosis history, a thorough description of 10 visits, photos and/or drawing that supports your work, questions that have come up as you work with your client. 

Deadline for applications is 11th Feb 2024. 

Max number of attendees is 10.
