General Information

Trigger Point Pilates Level One Matwork Class

Trigger Point Pilates Level One Matwork Class

For Pilates Background Instructors / PTs /Core Instructors / Sports Therapists / Physiotherapists.

  • Manuals given on training day.
  • Pre-arrival Paper to read and answer then bring to the course.
  • Visual, Verbal and Written assessment.

Before coming to the course pre-reading and recap on muscles and applied anatomy is advisable. I recommend you read a book. If you have a therapy background I recommend, Ruth Duncan’s book Myofascial Release.  Yes, it is for clinical therapists but it will give you a great insight into the world of Myofascia and may inspire you to start to train as a clinical therapist.

To understand the world of fascia more, read Anatomy Trains by Thomas Myers. It can blow your mind, if you’re not a great reader don’t panic. If anatomy is your weakness then go online and revise muscles and bones! Read a children’s educational anatomy book.

There is a pre-arrival paper about fascia to complete before the day and bring to registration, answers are in the text. This is just to give you an insight to fascia.

On the Day: Bring a pen & notebook. Wear warm loose clothing and workout kit. You will exercise barefoot. Drink water throughout the day otherwise you will tire as fascia needs hydration.
