About Polestar Pilates
Polestar Education is a worldwide provider of rehabilitation-based Pilates curriculum, high-calibre Pilates teachers and successful Pilates studio prototypes. Polestar’s teacher training programs are offered on an ongoing basis in cities all over the USA and through licensee arrangements in over 28 countries. Polestar-trained Pilates teachers can be found at medical facilities, health centres and fitness facilities all over the world.
The Polestar Pilates curriculum, designed by Physiotherapist and Orthopaedic Certified Specialist Brent Anderson, is based on a scientific foundation, as opposed to an anecdotal one. Drawing on his extensive background in rehabilitation and movement science, Brent Anderson has expanded on Pilates’ principles by adding manual skills, advanced body awareness, and principles from motor control theory. The Polestar Pilates method draws on the sciences of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and motor control, and integrates scientific research findings in the areas of orthopaedics, sports medicine and movement science.
Interactive versus Authoritative
Polestar’s teaching method is interactive, as opposed to authoritative. The educational approach incorporates discussion facilitation, labs (doing, observing, teaching), problem solving (utilising case studies and deductive reasoning), teaching practicals (group dynamics and individuals), analysis skills, and the principles of neuro-linguistic programming (modelling, sequencing and structuring information, and maintaining appropriate learning states). The Polestar Pilates method recognises the whole person – physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually.
Polestar is an international community of research-oriented movement science professionals, transferring advanced knowledge to our clients to improve health and well-being, through the application of Pilates and various methodologies of movement science.
Impact the world through intelligent movement, which fosters awareness of self and community.
