Brand 4 : Mbodies Exercise & Female Pelvic Health

Pilates clients are often reluctant to discuss with their Pilates instructor their needs for guidance with pelvic floor dysfunction exercises; whether that be bladder control exercises, stress incontinence exercises, or other pelvic floor therapy for incontinence.  Yet we know from discussions with Physios on our Women’s health physiotherapy courses, that incontinence physiotherapy (which involve exercises for urinary incontinence and more specifically Pelvic floor exercises for bladder control and stress incontinence exercises,) are highly successful in reducing the dysfunction.

The Mbodies Pilates & Female Pelvic Health brand is led by Alexandra Chapman who is a private and NHS employed Women’s Health Specialist Physiotherapist as well as a fully certified comprehensively trained Pilates Instructor. 


There are four stand-alone courses currently delivered in this section:

  1. The Pelvic Floor & Core: Foundations in Anatomy & Function
  2. Dysfunctions in Pelvic Health: Can Pilates help?
  3. Diastasis Rectus Abdominis: Core Restoration Using Pilates
  4. Functional Progression of Pilates Programming for Pelvic Health Conditions

The four modules when combined, together with formative and summative assessments, deliver the Mbodies Pilates and Female Pelvic Health Specialist Qualification.    Modules 1 & 3 are also two of the 6 modules that comprise the 2021 Mbodies Women’s Wellness Specialist Qualification.

All four modules are taken as Online Only training:
