The BodyTree Difference

prehab-trainer-fitness-training-continuing-education-personal-trainer-pilates-teacher-training-anatomy-biomechanics-pathologyThe BodyTree Academy (BTA) believes in teaching excellently.

We want to help you help others move well and with ease.

This is why in the BTA Pilates Matwork teacher training program (Mat TT), the Matwork exercises are taught hand in hand with Prehab Trainer™. The BTA Approach is a client-centric approach. We believe in teaching the bodies (clients) presented, as opposed to mindlessly applying a fixed sequence of exercises to any client.

During the Mat TT, you will learn a critical thinking process. This process is imperative for you to teach a class that is relevant, meaningful and effective for your clients.

You will understand and learn how to do each Matwork exercise well and what each exercise’s primary intention is. But more importantly, you will:

– Learn how to look and “read” a body (your clients’), visually and through palpation
– Make informed judgements about what you see
– Know what you can do to address the issues e.g. a Release, Stretch, Activation, Modification/Progression

You will also learn about class design and class programming so that your clients can benefit maximally from your Pilates Matwork classes.

This solid foundation in the BTA Mat TT is the prerequisite for the BTA Comprehensive TT.

The BTA Pilates Matwork teacher training program is UNIQUE because:
