I'm SJ Walls the creator of the Clinical Pilates Specialist® Diploma. I've over 23 years of experience teaching Pilates in both fitness and clinical settings. I'm the owner of the Rehab Hub in Glasgow, Scotland (UK), a large multidisciplinary clinic of Podiatrists, Physios, Sports Therapist, Massage Therapists and Pilates studio. As well as lecturing post-graduate professionals to take their teaching to the next level I am a qualified Podiatrist and Sports Therapist with a specialty in MSK. I have a Masters in Global Public Health (MPH) with research interests in health inequalities. Additionally, clinically my research interest are rheumatology and biomechanics.
My courses are built on everything I have learned as a Pilates Teacher, Podiatrist, Sports Therapist, Researcher and Lecturer. The Clinical Pilates Specialist Method is different from what you learned on your foundation trainings. On your foundation training, you are taught the foundations but many of this may feel disjointed. The Clinical Pilates Specialist Method teaches you to look at your client/patient as a whole person, taking your training and understanding to a deeper level and be able to work with healthcare providers in managing specific health conditions. it builds on your initial training and takes that to the next stage to have you the go to clinical pilates specialist in your area. The Method draws on my 23 years of combining the Pilates Method with a fusion of what I have learned as a Podiatrist, Sports Therapist and Pilates Teacher. They have a heavy biomechanics focus
My courses are post graduate training intended for Health Care Professionals (HCP) (Physios, Doctors & Podiatrists) already working in MSK (or looking to). Heath & Fitness professionals with a minimum of a level 3 qualification (ideally Pilates) - already working with or looking to work in a more rehab setting. Sports Therapists looking to bring new methods into their practise.
