In your teacher certification you are taught how to teach the basics of the Wunda Chair repertoire, but to understand the subtleties and the nuance of movement, and connections in patterns, requires experience in working with the apparatus and clients. This course is designed to provide absolute beginners and experienced teachers the skills to draw connections and put their knowledge into context.
The repertoire and resources are comprehensive, providing teachers with opportunities to identify modifications and vari
ations for various common movement dysfunctions eg tendinopathies, flat feet and osteoporosis. It will give you teaching tips and contraindications for each exercise. We also explain how the repertoire relates to other equipment in the Pilates method.
The repertoire review and additions are not necessarily about advanced Pilates exercises. In the Recovering your Chair workshop we instead take an in-depth look at the work that is often needed for the average client participating in studio or semi-private settings and how you adapt the repertoire to the person in front of you.
The course has clear guidelines for each exercise showing the focus and purpose, teaching tips, modifications, contraindications. We also explain to you how the repertoire relates to other equipment in the Pilates method.
The online experience is supported by:
- A comprehensive manual
- Program sheets to allow participants to practice the repertoire with flow and rhythm.
- Opportunities for Face to Face tutorials where participants can explore the provided programs and repertoire, as well as discuss applications and modifications which have been applied within their teaching practice. These tutorials Face to Face tutorials allow experienced teachers to work together constructively in order to deepen their knowledge and network.
Who is this course for
Pilates teachers or other health professionals who have done their basic training and are now looking for inspiration and more depth when teaching the Wunda Chair repertoire. In the course we reference exercises from the Mat and Reformer repertoire, so prior knowledge of this repertoire is useful.
