Course Introduction Video

Introduction

Introduction

This course will revisit and review all repertoire from Reformer Part 01 then complete these movements and add additional repertoire to complete to all levels the MK Pilates full standard Reformer Repertoire. We give you all you need to safely and effectively take your client through the MK Pilates repertoire to all levels in a One to One personal training environment on a Studio Reformer.  You will also be introduced to the concept of group reformer sessions with sample progressive programmes provided.

Final Assessment: This involves a period of self-practice with an appropriate repertoire for your personal physical needs followed by a video submission of a self-practice session of 45 minutes covering the appropriate use of all areas of the Reformer with box-work.  This will be accompanied by a written programme with movement selection goals and a personal critique of your own technique.

Studio Equipment Foundation Diploma:  Some centres have a delivery format that has less Face to Face time due to local considerations.  When this occurs, the extra hours can be accrued through attendance of additional educational events in the subsequent months and years to qualify for the other levels of Diplomas.  Typically, a Foundation Diploma has less observed practice time and fewer tutor led group classes but educational content is not excluded.

Course Content

Course Content

  • Face to Face Tutor Time
  • Review of postural types
  • The opportunity to have your own teaching skills and personal practice technique assessed and discussed.
  • Movement modifications, purpose of adaptations and progressions for each movement.

Support Materials

  • The student Handbook and Workbook provided as downloadable PDF files to print at your convenience but required to be accessed either digitally or in printed format during your Face to Face tutor time. The Handbook displays versions of the movements with note sections for your completion during and after the education.  The Workbook provides master pages to be used to record your personal programme and to self-assess your recorded session.  It is recommended you familiarise yourself with this material prior to attendance wherever possible.
  • Video content is provided for this education covering all the repertoire as presented in your written materials with simple audio guidance.  It is recommended you familiarise yourself with this material prior to attendance wherever possible.

Assessment

Assessment

  • Completion of a Workbook documenting and outlining your session content. These will include details of your own postural imbalances if. This should be followed up with your observations, adaptations or alterations and future personal development plan.
  • The final practical assessment may vary centre to centre but the standard is to submit a video rather that to complete a face to face assessment.
  • Written self-evaluation of your video submission along with any changes you may make based upon the observation of the video content.
  • The suggested period for the completion of the first case study is no later than 3 months from completion of the course. You have one year to successfully complete the assessment processes after which MK Pilates reserve the right to request repeat attendance of elements of the course and may apply charges for this and any re-assessments after the one year period is over.
  • If a Michael King Pilates multiple choice theory paper has not been completed you may be asked to complete this at another agreed time to achieve your certification. As every situation is individual your Training Centre or Tutor will be able to discuss this with you but MK Pilates Administration will make the final decision as to whether the paper is required.  This element covers general Anatomy and Physiology areas to a Health and Fitness entry level standard of knowledge.

NOTE: the elements of assessment can be worked on consecutively with the assessment processes for any other MK Pilates courses. This is a teaching skills and knowledge based assessment.
