About Movement Science Made Simple

Most movement teachers and fitness instructors have studied human anatomy, but it's difficult to make good use of that knowledge without some understanding of physiology and kinesiology. Movement Science Made Simple is a series of courses designed to teach Pilates and Yoga instructors the essentials of movement science in a way that can be immediately applied to one's practice and teaching.


In each course's Lecture component we will:

  • Review musculoskeletal anatomy in depth, including an overview of ligamentous structures
  • Learn joint structures, kinematics, and normal ranges of motion
  • Introduce basis concepts from motor learning theory.


In the Lab component we will:

  • Perform simple exercises to translate the lecture material into classical Pilates and Yoga movement
  • Look at different bodies to familiarize ourselves with normal variations in structure
  • Develop new ways of seeing and cuing movement based on a more complete understanding of the body
  • The MSMS Lectures draw on Jeremy's graduate studies in anatomy, physiology and kinesiology and Cara's experience as a dance educator and master Pilates teacher. To the Lab, we bring our decades of practicing and teaching Pilates, a deep practice of Yoga, and years of tutelage under such movement visionaries as Kathleen Stanford Grant, Irene Dowd, Barbara Mahler, and Nancy Topf.
