Back Care Workshop

1 hr 50 min - Workshop


"90 % of all adults in the USA will suffer one episode of serious lower back pain in their life."

Brent Anderson is the leader in our industry when it comes to back pain and Pilates (he wrote his dissertation and received his Ph.D on the subject). This workshop is full of valuable information and demonstration. We have broken down the workshop in ten digestible chapters that you can start and stop at anytime and always return to for reference.

Learn to identify the needs of a client with lower back pain.
Gain a visual understanding of the discs and facet joints and the actions they perform.
Become more comfortable working with individuals with mechanical low back pain.

Lecture and Practical:
Brent intersperses practical experience with lecture throughout each chapter so the experience of learning feels rich and continuous throughout this workshop.

Wrap up the workshop with a practical demonstration of Brent teaching a Reformer for back care class.

This is a workshop you'll refer to over and over again.
What You'll Need: Theraband

fantastic workshop, love the all the talk of movement from bones... would be great to see a back care workout on mat or even ball as not everyone has reformers... thanks to PA for bringing in Brent... he speaks my language..

Worth the wait. I have put Mr. Anderson up in the same hero status along with Rael! You can never have too many heros!
I will watch this several times over I am sure. Sure hope he returns in the near future for more classes and lectures.

I have just bought this workshop , please can I clarify that there is unlimited access? eg. it isn't going to disappear a few months down the line. (I have bought things from other sites and occasionally this is the case.) I am so looking forward to watching this and inspired to hear the comments above, I will feedback also :)

I found this workshop to be extremely helpful and thought Brent's presentation was easy to understand. Very helpful as my clients sometimes prefer use of layman terms as opposed to anatomical. Only problem I encountered is I could not access the quiz after having viewed the entire workshop. No big deal as I plan to view several times?
Heather ~ You have unlimited access to this workshop and you will be able to watch it as many times as you like. We will not be taking it down in a few months.
Tamara ~ We are aware that our system is not detecting that iPad users have watched a chapter. You can not view the quiz until our system has detected that each chapter has been watched (a PMA rule). If you wish to take the quiz please email me at and I will manually mark that the chapters have been watched or you can watch the workshop on any device other than an iPad and it will mark the chapters as watched. We are working to fix this technical bug.
I just bought the workshop, but get about half way through each chapter and the video stops. can you tell me what I need to do to correct this. Love the workshop so far!
Rosemary ~ I have just sent you an email that suggests solutions to the playback problem. If anyone ever has a playback issue please email me at
