Deliver safe and effective Pilates sessions to a whole new client base by combing the Older Adult Award with a specific older adults Pilates workshop.
In the words of founder Joseph Pilates: “We retire too early… Our prime of life should be in the 70s and old age should not come until we are almost 100.” For those who practice Pilates, this popular form of exercise can be used to reduce stress levels, improve balance and strengthen the core. When it comes to age-related conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis, Pilates has been proven to be incredibly effective in alleviating the symptoms.
Our Level 3 Pilates for Older Adults course is designed to upskill current Pilates teachers, enabling them to safely and effectively work with this rapidly growing special population. It’s also incredibly useful for other fitness professionals wishing to expand their client base.
While on course, you’ll receive individually-tailored support from our expert team of tutors and assessors. This is also unlimited with no caveats, so you’ll be able to access as much help as you need.
