Pilates For Children

10 min - Tutorial


Pilates has a positive impact for children and Dawn-Marie Ickes gives us information we can use to organize our approach to teaching children. She tells us the things to consider, like what the child likes to do, which can really make a difference when designing a program. She also explains how Pilates creates tools and habits they can use for the rest of their lives, and how it is beneficial for all, including young athletes and special populations.

If you are interested in working with children, the Pilates for Children and Adolescents; Manual of Guidelines and Curriculum is highly recommended before you start a program.
What You'll Need: No props needed

PE classes were always discouraging for me as a child since I was not interested in basketball and relay races. If Pilates had been introduced, I am sure it would have been more enjoyable. Now that I am a teacher I try to teach my students basics with Pilates and Yoga. I find that the children react positive to it. It helps with concentration, flexibility, and balance. It certainly does help the students become more relaxed! They become aware of their breathing techniques. I do not use props since I only do it when I have a few minutes to spare.
Really cool! I just got my 5 year old and 3 year old their own mats for Christmas!
