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. Or possibly you are new to Pilates and want to get started.
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 25 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.
