Learn More About This Pilates for Older Adults Course

Intro

“We retire too early… Our prime of life should be in the 70s and old age should not come until we are almost 100”, those are the famous words of Pilates founder, the eponymous Joseph Pilates and it’s hard to argue with his outlook, especially considering what he was able to achieve with his own body.

Mat-based Pilates offers a wealth of benefits including reducing stress levels, improving balance and strengthen the core. It can also prove incredibly effective in alleviating the symptoms of age-related conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis. As a population, we are living longer than we ever have done before and staying active well into our older years. As a Pilates instructor, your role is to ensure that continues and that you’re helping as many clients as possible.

To aid your development, we’ve created Level 3 Pilates for Older Adults and it provides a perfect upskill opportunity for Pilates professionals. Essentially, this combines the Level 3 Exercise for Older Adults course with a specific hands-on workshop designed to help you adapt Pilates exercises for a rapidly growing special population.

As standard, you’ll receive access to LES (Learner Engagement System). This innovative online platform is where you’ll complete your home study work, assisted by bespoke digital and hard copy manuals and unlimited phone and email support from a dedicated tutor.
