Let's Take it to the Studio and Dive in Deep

Applied Anatomy and Kinesiology for Pilates Practitioners
September 11 - November 20, 2022

I meet too many teachers looking for continuing education in anatomy and too many clients who haven't been educated about their bodies.  Most training programs cover some anatomy, but is it truly infused into your teaching? Learning anatomy is useless if you can't directly apply what you learn in the studio and grow your client list. 

Somaphyx aims to fill the gaps in your teaching practice and transform you into a body conscious mover. This 10 week immersive mentorship brings A&K + Mvmt Fundamentals to life inside the studio with expanded content designed to train your eye and hone your teaching skills. 

  • Learn the magic art of cueing without overloading your client and how to quickly change your cues for the body in front of you. 
  • Never guess on springs or reps again after learning how different apparatus work with the biomechanics of the body. 
  • Learn how to create progressions and regressions that target your client's goals and keep them coming back - all without hours of preparation time.
  • Create pre-and post-rehabilitative programming as well as challenging workouts for all your clients' needs. 

The most sought-after teachers are ones that can change a body because they understand the body and how it moves, what it needs and its possibilities. You can be that teacher!

You "Don't Do"Anatomy

But you've gone as far as you can without it.

Pilates teachers aren't doctors, and we aren't expected to be. Yet the best teachers have a sixth sense about the body as a complex system of simple machines. Your career as a teacher depends on your body smarts and your connection with every client you teach.

Put Your Flashcards Away

Memorizing anatomy terms won't give you the tools your clients need.

Nor will memorizing choreography make you able to teach to the body in front of you. Most anatomy programs fail movers because we can only learn through movement. I've expanded the curriculum of A&K + Mvmt Fundamentals with studio equipment Video Breakdowns, Curated Assignments, Live Group Seminars and more.

Who Am I, Anyway?

Just a Teacher that LOVES to TEACH!

Danica Kalemdaroglu

I have been a movement educator for over twenty years. I found Pilates through my undergraduate curriculum as an injured dance major with years of misuse. Pilates did what years of physical therapy couldn't and became my passion. Using Pilates to heal my body has shaped my teaching method and approach. Guided by the classical method of Joseph Pilates, I teach to educate each body of their individual movement potential.

What the Cool Kids Have to Say

You Can Be One, Too!

“ I learned some anatomy during my teacher training but the Somaphyx workshop went into much more detail. Also we did not have any anatomy textbooks to reference during teacher training so having the reference with detailed images helped me to better understand the function of bones, joints, muscles etc. and gain better insight on their relationship.”

Lisa Deveaux

“There were innumerable things that were valuable in this course. I really valued Danica’s anatomy knowledge and how she was able to relate it to queuing clients to their bodies not to any particular shape or preconceived idea of what the activity was. Her honoring of the technique through its basic intelligence was clearly evident and her ability to translate her knowledge to our needs was exceptional ”
