History will remember this momentous feat. Over the course of three intense days, Alpine’s PTs are immersing themselves in the rigors of attaining Level 1 Pilates Reformer certification through Balanced Body Pilates.
In a room where all eight of our physical therapists seek to take our treatment skills to a higher level, the energy is palpable.
Professional instructor Roger Gonzales Hibner a formerly renowned dancer who is now a nationally recognized Pilates Master Instructor fluidly vocalizes the next exercise sequence. He does so with a style and grace that matches the moves his trained and toned body has repeated for years while practicing and teaching Pilates.
It won’t be long before our three-day training session ends and testing begins. Our aim? To bring a whole new level of patient care to Missoula, Montana, through a team of physical therapists who are professionally trained and certified in the Pilates Method. That’s Alpine PT.
Yes. It is well known that Alpine has always been a leader in Pilates-based rehabilitation. However, attaining certification among all our professional staff stamps excellence on our reputation. Yet it doesn’t stop there. Both our clinic managers, Sam Schoeneman and Angela Listug-Vap, are pursuing the requirements to become fully trained Pilates faculty instructors.
Check out a few pictures of our therapists during our training class.
