20 years ago when I started my Pilates training, I knew zero anatomy. Literally, nothing. I was intimidated — big time. When I began my Pilates teacher training course everyone seemed to talk-the-talk. I listened and nodded pretending I knew what they were talking about and hoped I didn’t get called on. Needless to say, this was not a great way to begin my training. I was in over my head.

Give you the skills to understand the anatomy of an exercise, which will allow you to teach directly to your client’s needs. Set you up for long-term success and give you the confidence to teach with knowledge. If you don’t know what muscles an exercise targets, how can you give a client a well-balanced, educated workout?
