Deepen your knowledge and understanding of motor control, motor planning, muscle activation, strength and biomechanics, with specific application to the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip, thoracic, cervical and scapular.

We explore and master these foundational principles and how they relate to pain, pathology, injury, overuse conditions and sport with the use of mat and reformer repertoire.

We equip you with the clinical reasoning, movement analysis, specific exercise prescription, detail and the care required to treat patients and clients of all capacities – from those with chronic pain and disease through to elite athletes and high level clientele.

The UP Edu syllabus goes far beyond the text book approach, delving into the ‘why’ behind mat and reformer based repertoire. Essential for all physiotherapists and health professionals working in the hospital, community, private practice, rehabilitative, elite sport and group class setting.
