MINI WORKSHOP: The Pelvis, Hip and Thigh



Class Fee* Class: $230.00 (Early) $245.00 (Regular)


 SAT 11:30am - 6:00pm



Use the Anatomy in Three Dimensions™ system to deepen your understanding of the hip and thigh muscles and how they work to create stability, mobility, strength and power in the lower body. Together we review the bony landmarks of the pelvis, hip joint and femur and build all of the muscles in the area. You will come away with a clear three dimensional view of the relationships in this area and how they work together to create functional movement.



Our mini workshops are ideal for short anatomy intensives on specific musculature and function. Combined, these individual segments satisfy the comprehensive course and anatomy requirement for Balanced Body Pilates instructor training programs.
