January 31 marks the end of the “early bird” registration period for summer 2011 Pilates Therapeutics Specialization Programs in Scoliosis Management and Breast Cancer Rehabilitation.
The courses, to be led by Suzanne Martin, PT, DPT, a doctor of physical therapy and Pilates expert, are designed for certified Pilates teachers. Each course has been awarded 26 continuing education credits (CECs) for PMA-certified Pilates teachers by the Pilates Method Alliance.
Martin is an ACE-certified fitness instructor and cancer specialist and is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, the Pilates Method Alliance, and St. Francis Memorial Hospital Center for Sports Medicine. She has been presenting scoliosis and breast cancer workshops since 2001 for professional associations and education providers such as the Pilates Method Alliance, California Education Connection, and Balanced Body University, and has written articles on both subjects for Pilates Pro magazine and other publications. She is also the author of the “A Better You” column in Dance Studio Life magazine.
Both four-day courses will be held at Pilates Therapeutics, Martin’s private physical therapy practice, in Alameda, California. Scoliosis Management will run June 23 to 26, and Breast Cancer Rehabilitation will run July 21 to 24. Both include two months of mentoring and follow-up.
