Pilates Instructor Training For Rehabilitation Professionals
CALIBRATE Clinical Pilates Instructor Training began as small workshops in Melbourne, Australia, for groups of physiotherapists who wanted to expand their knowledge of Pilates for rehabilitation. In the early days, the focus of these workshops was the application of Pilates repertoire to specific joints or pathologies.
It soon became apparent that many clinicians were frustrated that their prior education and experience was overlooked when they sought to undertake more comprehensive Pilates rehabilitation instructor training: participants were still required to work through many “levels” of training before rehabilitation was even discussed. Despite hours of training in basic anatomy, these rehabilitation professionals were essentially rote learning exercises... This wasn't what they were looking for.
Clinicians were used to practicing their skills with an emphasis on clinical reasoning and evidence-based practice; they wanted the acknowledgement that they already had some very good tools in their tool-kits. Hence the comprehensive CALIBRATE Clinical Pilates Instructor Training course was developed.
CALIBRATE Clinical Pilates Instructor Training seeks to build on the prior education and experience of all rehabilitation professionals. The course encourages each practitioner to integrate Pilates into their own paradigm for therapy and body work.
