Spring Comprehensive Series - Glendale, AZ

The Polestar curriculum, designed by physical therapist and Orthopedic Certified Specialist Brent Anderson, is based on a scientific foundation of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and motor control, and integrates scientific research findings in the areas of orthopedics, sports medicine and movement


Our teaching method is interactive, helping you assess the whole person - physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. The educational approach incorporates: discussion forums, labs (doing, observing, teaching), problem solving (utilizing case studies and deductive reasoning), incorporates hands-on teaching (group and individuals), assessment skills, principles of neuro-linguistics (modeling, sequencing and structuring information)


The comprehensive series consists of 6 two-day (16 hours) course modules and teaches the practical skills needed to become proficient with Pilates exercises, assessment techniques, movement sequences, and the application of the Polestar Principles (the Polestar Principles course must be completed first). Case studies will be reviewed and you will design an exercise or treatment plan based on the information in the case study. You will learn over 90 exercises and their variations for Pilates equipment. The Pilates Studio and Pilates for Rehabilitation series are taught together, and include breakout sessions for rehabilitation professionals during each module.
