APPI’s Pilates & Hypermobility Online course provides an in-depth look into the application of Pilates based exercises for the hypermobile client. This course will present a scripted class plan for the hypermobile population and an in-depth review of the myriad of hypermobility issues from hypermobility to Hypermobility Syndrome to Ehlers Danlos and Marfans disease. The course will then proceed to a series of specific exercises looking at how to work clients with hypermobility disorders into the neutral and then the hypermobile range. All aspects of the course are backed up with relevant research and clinical application of the course founder.
Following this course you will be able to:
- Deliver a Pilates class for the hypermobile population
- Identify the differences between flexibility, hypermobility and hypermobility disorders
- Accurately assess for a hypermobility disorder
- Given a case scenario of a hypermobile client, the learner will be able to design an appropriate exercise program for the client.
