Programming Pilates for Youth
June 25 - 27, 2014

This course has been created by the PMA’s Pilates 4 Youth Committee to facilitate the growing interest in, and need for, teaching materials and safety guidelines for working with the children and adolescents of our communities. This course was a great success in Miami in 2013. Join us for the west coast edition!

By participating in this course attendees will:

  • Learn how to work with specific age groups and why each group needs to be worked in specific ways  
  • Understand how to work with the youth population safely  
  • Learn how to develop a program in a number of different settings (school, studio, youth center)
  • Experience what it is like to be a participant in a "youth" class
  • Practice teaching a sample class
  • Develop sample lesson plans
  • Earn 12 PMA CECs

The PMA’s new book, Pilates for Children and Adolescents, which complements the coursework, will be available at the event, and the course will be delivered by the book’s authors!
