Functional Anatomy and Kinesiology (FAK)

Knowledge of the human body is essential to prepare to teach Pilates. That’s why we require all students to take our FAK Anatomy course and exam, specially designed to provide the anatomical and physiological knowledge needed for safe instruction of functional and mindful movement.
The course is designed specifically for a movement coach and makes use of direct examples in coaching and mindset to aid both the client and the teacher.

Those already in possession of a university-level anatomy training certificate (physiotherapy, osteopathy, university anatomy course, EuropeActive certification, etc.) may opt out of the course, but for quality assurance, must pass the exam.

Before being granted any Corpus Pilates Instructor diploma, students must also achieve a successful result in the Corpus Anatomy & Physiology exam. The course can be taken prior to, in parallel, or after any of our Pilates programs.
