What does China,Turkey, Singapore, England, Tunisia, Brazil, Cananda, and Alpine Physical Therapy have in common? Balanced Body University (BBU) Faculty! Yes, Alpine PT’s Sam Schmidt MPT, is in Sacramento, California, completing her BBU Faculty Training for Pilates.
Sam has been faculty for CoreAlign for the last four years, so it was a natural fit and need for her to step up for the leadership in Pilates education in the mountain west region. Sam is working with the industry’s top Pilates company and world’s top Pilates instructor this week to ensure the highest level of Pilates education to her instructor training program for Pilates.
Notably, Sam was fortunate to be able to room with Tatiana Trivellato of Brazil who happens to be the only other PT at this training. Tatiana is currently living in Baltimore where her PT husband is studying at John Hopkins University. This delightful couple may be leaving for Africa and a PhD program in the next year, unless Sam can convince them to instead head to Sam’s environs in Missoula, Montana!
For Sam it has been a great couple of first days, learning from Education Program Director, Nora St. John, of Balanced Body University as well as other experts in the field who are attending the course. Sam exclaims, “We even did a factory tour and saw new cutting edge equipment to one of Joseph Pilates’ original reformers!”
Sam and Alpine Physical Therapy together with The Core Studio at Alpine will be offering comprehensive Pilates certification starting February 8th and 9th. Along with this scheduled “Mat 1” course, there will be several courses offered throughout 2014.
Sam will continue to bring CoreAlign to the world too. You are also invited to find CoreAlign instructor trainings at www.Pilates.com.
Stay tuned on this excited, international event and what Sam will bring back to Alpine PT afterward!
