OOV PILATES APPARATUS CLASS
This course will explore how using a device like the Oov can facilitate overall improvement in Functional Movement. This course will also take traditional Pilates exercises and apply them to the Oov. During this course, participants will explore the concept of creating stability through improving mobility, as well as, the role that Disassociation plays in enhancing stability training.
Balance Training will be utilized as a means to effectively enhance motor learning and improved performance.
Techniques such as Sequential Training, Proper Queuing, Regression/Progression, as well as an understanding of the concept of Tolerance and Effective Loading will be provided as a means to assist instructors in teaching complex multi-plane movements.
The “Four Pillars of Movement” and their relationship to efficient performance will be the cornerstone to teaching Functional Movement. Faulty or inefficient Movement Patterns will be identified in regards to postural type. Strength, speed, power, and agility are more effectively achieved if the client can maintain Motor Control, Stability and Endurance, and these will be the basis of all exercises in the Oov Fundamentals Course. Therefore, the focus of all the exercises presented will be on Eccentric Activation for Greater Strength and Control through Low Threshold, Slow Movement Training
Students will also be given information for the structure, as well as, the queuing techniques to facilitate a group Oov class.
The Oov Fundamentals course is the prerequisite to all other Oov courses, including 3D Assessment, Rehabilitation, Pilates Apparatus, Performance, Sport Specific and Manual Therapy. This course gives the practitioner the ability to diagnose and address the individual’s movement through Proprioceptive Neuro-Plasticity at an unprecedented level. Students will learn the nuances of adding or removing load and resistance to increase mobility or to increase fine motor control.
This course will start to identify Direct Clinical Deficiencies, such as Axial Control of the Skeleton, Gait Pattern Dysfunction, 3 D Sling Deficiencies and Compromised Articular function. Detailed and Specific Exercises that address the Correction of these deficiencies will be covered.
