A great course to review all the anatomy I learnt in my initial training as a Pilates teacher. . Really good to go back and revisit anatomy with years of teaching under my belt and this course is presented so well, integrating anatomy knowledge into Pilates movement and as a result functional movement to help me help my clients better. All the of-course online courses I have done have felt like giving myself a treat....time to delve back into what I love! Thank you for making it all so accessible!
