Assess and Design Effective Pilates Programs for Clients and Patients

Polestar’s unique Principles of Movement, and the Polestar Assessment Tool (PAT) integrated with the ICF model can effectively differentiate whether the movement limitations are strategic, structural or both. 

Dr. Anderson, author of Principles of Movement, has designed a simple, yet thorough algorithm to aid physical therapists with their functional movement assessment skills and treatment designs.  Dr. Anderson will be facilitating the workshop in a live-virtual setting. 

The Polestar Assessment Tool excels at analyzing each and every part of the body and then also giving you application to what we do as Pilates instructors.
