Develop Programs Promoting Cervical, Pelvic and Spinal Health to Help Relieve Pain

Do your clients experience pain in their hips, neck or spine? Help them improve their health and function in these areas with this course focused on kinetic chain training. Led by Tanya Thompson, founder and owner of Pilates Unlimited – the Art of Movement™, you will delve into axial skeleton anatomy and musculoskeletal chain reactions. This course will focus on three areas of learning: safe cervical training for optimal neck health; hip, pelvic and spinal anatomy and their joint movements; and the musculoskeletal chain reactions that occur with a lateral pelvic tilt combined with an anterior pelvic tilt or posterior pelvic tilt. Furthermore, you will learn how to apply your theoretical knowledge to movement and create amazing programs that are client-specific and goal-driven.

You will learn:

  • An effective neck program that will encourage better alignment and functional strength within the neck
  • The anatomy of the pelvis, hip and spine in order to understand pelvic, hip and spinal stability
  • How to apply anatomical knowledge to exercises and movement
  • The chain reactions that occur with a lateral pelvic tilt combined with an anterior pelvic tilt or posterior pelvic tilt
  • How to create a program that is client-specific and will assist with injury prevention during training


Tanya Thompson is a top notch instructor. The material is comprehensive, quite useful and presented clearly. This is a challenging and time consuming course. It should be valued at much more than .4 CECs. (At least .6) The quiz questions are quite challenging. Take notes!

Tanya Thompson is a wealth of knowledge and explains important concepts in movement such that I can apply easily.

Tanya and her associate (Lemeeze?) were very clear and really know their subject. I used to do massage therapy and it's been years since I heard such articulate , clear comprehension of anatomy and , more importantly to put that knowledge into intelligent action. I now have a lot more tools in my tool box. I am very encouraged to really into the topic on my own and get some good results. Bravo.

It was very hard.

This course was very hard. The teachers were excellent and excited about what they were teaching. It should have been valued greater than .4 CEU's. I spent a lot of time completing it. Thank you for the opportunity to take this course online.
