Research Forum - Adriano Bittar, Rafaela Noleto and Anne Willet
Why is RESEARCH Important to the Pilates Teacher?
The research on Pilates is finally catching up to Joseph Pilates original ideas and methods - 60 years later! Learning about the evidence
of teaching effective Pilates is critical to creating positive outcomes in our clients. High quality instruction, based on current
evidence, allows Pilates to evolve along with the advances in modern science and keeps Pilates from becoming an exercise fad. High
quality research will keep Pilates at the forefront as a relevant exercise choice for our aging population and for all ages, pathologies
and abilities. Expect from the Research Forum that a panel of specialists discuss the research about Fletcher Pilates developed so
far, in topics such as breast cancer, fascia, breath, dance, occupational health, etc.
