The Real Pilates Standards of Training are distinguished by our focus on 4 key elements. Your weekly assignments are designed to develop your skill in each of these areas as well as your Anatomy, History and more.
WEEK 14 ANATOMY
Anatomy Course Overview:
And we’re back again! This week we are on to joints! The information from last week should help you organize this week’s info--remembering the names of the bones as well as the terms from Week 1 will help you this week. Again, you’ll head to Vimeo (using the link below and the password “rpttanatomy”), make your notes, and then head to canvas to answer this week’s questions.
