Why Body Harmonics Education?
The goals for Body Harmonics education is to make top quality movement education accessible worldwide to anyone interested in learning the best ways to help others discover the power of optimal movement.
Body Harmonics education is science-based, hands-on, learner-centered education. Using a variety of methods—lecture, observation, movement labs, discussion and written materials—we aim to create interactive learning opportunities that encourage students to ask questions, seek answers, make suggestions and engage in a dialogue.
Body Harmonics courses focus on teaching students how the body works and delivering tools that are simple, straight forward and easy to understand which you can apply immediately. Tools that you need to help people move with as much ease and integrity as possible. From the current anatomy and biomechanic theory to step by step clear instructions, you are given a structure to work with that helps to improve your reasoning and critical thinking skills. You will be given lots of hands-on learning to embody the information.
We have extensive titles from Anatomy, injuries post-rehabilitation to special populations. These titles are designed to deepen your understanding of human body, problem solve and fine tune ways to effectively work with this complex structure and to get results. You will walk away with confidence in dealing with the general as well as injury populations.
These courses are suitable for Pilates, movement teachers and anyone who is interested in learning about the body and the optimal movement pattern.
Whether you want to dip your foot into a new subject area or fine-tune your teaching skills, these trainings will inspire you to be the best teacher you can be.
