SJ Walls MRCPod
BSc (Hons), PgD, creator of the Clinical Pilates Specialist Method (CpS), Pilates teacher of 23 years, Sports Therapist & MSK Podiatrist.
I'm SJ Walls the creator of the Clinical Pilates Specialist® postgraduate CPD training. I've over 24 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 therapists, Massage Therapists, Pilates Teachers and a Pilates studio.
As well as lecturing post-graduate professionals to take their teaching to the next level I am an HCPC registered Podiatrist and Sports Therapist with a speciality in MSK. I have a Masters in Global Public Health (MPH) with public health research interests in health inequalities. Additionally, I am currently undertaking my PhD specialising in rheumatology & biomechanics.
My courses are built on everything I have learned as a Pilates Teacher, Podiatrist, Sports Therapist, Researcher and Lecturer. The CPD courses differ from what you learned in your foundation training. In your foundation training, you are taught the foundations but many of these may feel disjointed. The CPD courses here aim to teach 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 CPD courses draw on my 24 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.
