How to book a course/workshop and pass your exam?

Send your email to administration@biopilates.fr with:
• First name
• Name
• Adress
• Name and date of the course or workshop you want to attend

You will get an answer in 24 hours.

How to pass your exam?

You have 6 months to pass your exam.

What will I be asked to do for my practical exam?

The following areas will be evaluated:
1. Postural analysis.
2. Stated focus of workout.
3. Five Basic Principles: taught separate to the Warm Up on the Matwork and applied to all the exercises.
4. Teaching manner and energy (attitude, motivational, verbalization skills). You are guiding your subject with control and develop a rapport with your subject.
5. Ability to cue: use of imagery, verbal cues, and kinesthetic cues (touch) to aid in guiding your subject through the exercises and transitions, cues should specific to your subject and be a combination of muscular and tactile cues and imagery to achieve movement to incorporate and reinforce all basic principles.
6. Ability to correct: use of imagery, verbal cues, and kinesthetic cues (touch) to ensure correct alignment and proper execution of exercises; knowledge from course(s) to achieve dynamically stabilized, conscious and safe movement.
7. Knowledge of content, knowing the relevant repertoire of exercises and the corresponding movement and breath patterns, minimum number of exercises for each piece and level.
8. Exercise progression and rationale for the exercises chosen, applying adaptations and modifications as necessary.
9. Rhythm and pace of the workout: fluidity, using transitions from one exercise to another, choosing a pace that challenges the individual without compromising the Five Basic Principles or causing overexertion, and cueing in a manner that encourages proper timing of movement and breath, the workout fits the required amount of time for the exam.

What do I need to know for my written examination?

The written exam consists of 50 multiple choice, 4 fill-in-the-blank or matching type questions, and 25 muscle identification questions. It will take you approximately 2–3 hours to complete the exam. However, you are not required to finish within a specified time limit. The exam tests your knowledge of the following:
1. Muscle origin, insertion and action (please refer to list of muscles in the Mat & Reformer Support Materials book)
2. Recognition of diagrams of individual muscles
3. Concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions of specific muscles during specific movements and exercises
4. Movements that make up exercises and their proper anatomical descriptions
5. Order of Essential and Intermediate Mat workout (Matwork, Matwork & Reformer or Mat, Reformer, & CCB exam)
6. Order of Essential and Intermediate Reformer workout (Reformer, Matwork & Reformer or Matwork, Reformer, & CCB exam)
7. Ideal postural alignment and groups of opposing muscles
8. Poor postural alignment and muscular imbalances
9. Modifications to exercises for poor postural alignments
10. Programs to accommodate poor postural alignments
11. Proper set up of equipment, starting positions, movement patterns, and major intent or goal for each exercise
12. Five Basic principles – anatomical descriptions and purpose
13. Proper anatomical terms must be understood and used in all the relevant categories above.


Functional Anatomy

The Functional Anatomy course fully prepares students for that program. Additionally it can serve as a refresher or for anyone needing to fulfill the anatomy prerequisite for the Intensive program.
The classroom-style presentation utilizes visual aids and hands-on techniques providing students with a thorough review of anatomy basics which can be applied to all repertoire, as well as functional activities and movement.
This course uses lectures, demonstrations and group activities to teach basic anatomy fundamentals. There is a focus on anatomical terminology, which includes anatomical position, planes of motion, types of movement, names and locations of the majority of the bones in the body, locations and actions of joints, major muscle groups and the individual muscles’ origin insertion and action. Select exercises from the STOTT PILATES® repertoire are also broken down and analyzed in terms of the functional anatomy at play. Participants will deepen their understanding of the body and enhance their teaching with improved exercise selection and programming.

What you will learn:
• Anatomical position and the importance of it
• The bones that make up the axial and appendicular skeleton
• Names and locations of bony prominences and landmarks
• Terms of direction and relationship and their application to movement
• Types of joints and the movements available at the joints
• Types of muscular contractions including the application of force
• Origin, insertion and action of muscles
• Application of functional anatomy to chosen exercises and movements

Prerequisite:
There is no prerequisite for this course.
