The Gateway Pilates program is designed to provide an introductory understanding of Pilates and the Polestar approach that encourages successful, result-driven movement experiences.
As it is derived from science-based body mechanics, Pilates offers the tools to produce efficient exercise in a way that strengthens, rehabilitates and prevents injuries. In this program, selected Pilates Mat and Equipment exercises are taught to provide practical and applicable knowledge of form and sequencing techniques. It serves as a gateway to realizing the complete benefits of accurate exercise.
Beginning with at-home study preparation, the program shifts into experimental labs for well-rounded and collaborative learning. You will experience a variety of movement sequences throughout the courses that can be immediately incorporated into health and fitness programs.
This three-hour online training is a requirement for all who attend any of the Gateway Pilates training courses. The online course fortifies the fundamental principles and history of Pilates, and consists of three lectures: Pilates history and evolution, Polestar movement principles, and professional ethics and scope of practice. Each of these sections is followed by a brief written exam online.
