Introduction

This level 4 Advanced Certificate in Instructing Mat Pilates (Awarded by Active IQ) training course will take your pilates teaching to a new level. By it’s very nature pilates taught at an advanced level, using the classical mat principles, involves detailed analysis of the anatomical, biomechanical and physiological outcomes of each exercise and an in-depth analysis of a clients movement patterns. In order to teach pilates as a form of movement progression, correcting dysfunctional and compensatory movement patterns your knowledge of biomechanics, kinesiology, physiology and your ability to visually and verbally analyse movement has to be at the highest level. 

To take this advanced certificate in instructing mat pilates, you must be an experienced Pilates teacher with a full national qualification in Mat Pilates at level 3, together with a minimum of 12 months teaching experience after certification date. You must have an advanced ability to analyse and communicate exercises using the pilates method. The nature of the delivery of this certificate will challenge your current level of knowledge and progress your skills and understanding from level 3, through level 4 anatomy & physiology and beyond. You will develop a deep visual ability to understand and breakdown movement, micro control and correct movement patterns and the ability to analyse and communicate movement in detail across the pilates method and exercises.

To complete the advanced certificate in instructing mat pilates you will attend 4 advanced modules at level 4 and the choice of an optional module of either pre and post natal or exercise therapy. If you are a Drummond graduate and already hold or have attended one of the options modules in the previous 24 months this module learning can be accredited into this certificate as prior learning. The core modules are 1) level 4 advanced anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, 2) advanced movement analysis, kinetic chain function, dysfunction and compensatory movements. 3) Advanced level 4 Pilates analysis, teaching, progression and adaptation, 4) standing pilates and small equipment and an optional module of your choice.
