Anatomy Education for Exercise Professionals


Anatomy education for Pilates teachers and students with Theo Botha and Dr. Mark Vella 

Movement Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) knowledge is fundamental to successful practice for health, exercise and movement professionals, no matter their level, experience, or specialization. And whilst anatomy is an essential core subject for these professions, it creates anxiety for students, many of whom do not originally come from a medical or scientific background.

The better you understand movement and the anatomy of the human body, the better you can teach it. And the better you can teach, the greater your ability to bring change in someone’s life and wellbeing.

Upon completion of this program you will be able to analyse exercise and movement patterns, and better correct, progress and adapt your client’s programming with a scientific basis. Furthermore, you will be able to work with greater confidence and ability with special groups and needs, such as those retraining from injury and imbalance.
