Help Clients Move Better By Conducting Assessments and Identifying Compensations

As a health and exercise professional, one of your main goals is to help your clients move better. How can you know what really is keeping them from optimal movement? The answer is through movement assessments. In this course led by Tanya Thompson, founder and owner of Pilates Unlimited – the Art of Movement™, you will learn how to conduct comprehensive body and postural assessments. You will also understand common compensations that occur when clients perform exercises and the reasons why they happen. With this knowledge, you will able to identify discrepancies and restrictions, and will be able to incorporate vital movement principles and assessment exercises into your client-specific programs.

You will learn:

  • A comprehensive movement assessment program that can be used for all clients taking their restrictions and state of mind into consideration
  • The 5 movement principles
  • A comprehensive understanding of postural assessment
  • The differences between a movement assessment and a postural assessment
  • To view, assess and correct compensations


Excellent course with lots of helpful information on performing postural assessments, and on recognizing compensations, why they happen, and how to correct them. Tanya, the head instructor, was fantastic and I would have preferred her teach the entire course, rather than having a substitute instructor on a few of the sections. But overall, I am very pleased with what I learned from this course, and highly recommend it.

Fantastic presentation!

thank you! great course!

Great information but the handouts were not helpful to learning the subject and this felt very advanced.

Great course, very competent instructors, a manual included, very detailed explanation of the manual material, and very visual demonstrations. Good deep dive into anatomy.

Excellent coverage of the topics and great detail and application to client work
