This Home Study Course is designed for nurses (LPN, RN, NP) that want to learn the foundation principles and philosophies of the late Joseph H. Pilates including his history, the benefits of Pilates, the specific techniques applicable to the nursing profession and a few basic Pilates exercises that can help patient and nurse alike. It covers topics such as “What is Pilates?”, “The Order of Exercises” and “The Pilates Scoop” amongst others, helping to de-mystify and qualify this amazing method of movement. The program illuminates Pilates benefits for all who practice it and discusses ways that it can help the nurse and patient overcome those nagging backaches and neck-aches most often caused by muscular mis-use and over-use. Several Pilates exercises are taught in detail to establish a foundation of understanding and basic physical fitness upon which to build additional Pilates training courses. PIA Pilates Essentials for Nursing Course is a pre-requisite for all other PIA Pilates Courses.
