The Functional Anatomy course is geared toward students needing to refresh their knowledge in anatomy or for students who are required to fulfill the anatomy prerequisite before entering the Intensive Program.
The classroom-style presentation utilizes visual aids and hands-on techniques providing students with a thorough review of anatomy basics that can be applied to all repertoire as well as functional activities and movement.
This course uses lectures, demonstrations and group activities to teach basic anatomy fundamentals.
There is a focus on anatomical terminology, which includes anatomical position, planes of motion, types of movement, names and locations of the majority of the bones in the body, locations and actions of joints, major muscle groups and the individual muscles’ origins, insertions, and actions.
Select exercises from the STOTT PILATES® repertoire are also broken down and analyzed in terms of the functional anatomy at play. Participants will deepen their understanding of the body and enhance their teaching with improved exercise selection and programming.
