Course overview

Mbodies Courses fall broadly into 4 categories

  1. Special Populations Workshops
  2. Fitness Product inductions and choreography
  3. Pilates Education 
  4. Clinical or Wellness Specialist Qualifications

Consistently accross all workshops is a foundation based on Joseph Pilates principles of exercise which are ideally suited to clinical and special populations education as well as to safe and controlled use of fitness products and equipment whether as part of a group exercise class or used in personal training sessions.

Special Populations Workshops

These workshops vary from one to three days in length and cover a range of topics including :

Ante Natal Exercise

Bone Health

Menopause wellness programming

Pelvic Health

Rehabilitation Following :

  • Breast Cancer
  • Cesaerean Section
  • Diastasis Recti
  • Pelvic Disorders

Fitness Product inductions and choreography

Mbodies delivers workshops on behalf of product manufacturers and distributors to ensure that the user understands the safe and effective use of the product and in addition is provided with pre prepared classes and choreography to allow the teacher to effectively deliver sessions using the kit.

Courses that fall into this category include :

  • CoreFitnessRoller Foundation Workshop
  • CoreFitnessRoller Pilates Workshop
  • Tye4

Pilates Education 

Mbodies does not offer entry-level pilates matwork training.  We believe that there are large numbers of good Pilates schools offering L3 Matwork courses and more.

We do however offer existing certified pilates matwork instructors from any school, the chance to train as a Studio Pilates Instructor or to take workshops focussing on more Functional, Standing or Rotational themes.

Our Studio Pilates course focuses on the exercise rather than on the equipment  i.e. rather than teaching every exercise you can do on the Reformer or the Chair or the Cadillac we take the Exercise itself i.e. Swan Dive and then you learn how and why to teach it on the Reformer, Cadillac, Ladder, Barrel, Chair or even the CoreFitnessRoller. 

We take the 40 most used Pilates equipment exercises and teach you these across the key equipment and we ensure that you understand how to effectively work one on one or in groups with different studio layouts (small and large) and sharing the space with other instructors.

Clinical or Wellness Specialist Qualifications

Mbodies Specialist Qualifications usually combine a number of themed stand alone Workshops or Modules which are completed in an agreed order by the instructor and there is then a summative examination and maybe case studies pulling the workshops together to allow the qualification to be awarded.

At present the 

Women's Wellness Specialist Qualification is the first of the specialist qualifications to be fully operational.
