About BET PhysioPilates

BET PhysioPilates is a progressive, systematic therapeutic exercise system based on the Pilates method that follows the theoretical and scientific principles of re-training trunk stability, biomechanical balance, and the neuromuscular control of posture and movement. Re-training is guided by the principles of motor control and motor learning theory.

 

Overview of this Resource Package

This online resource is for participants who have attended BET PhysioPilates courses. All the exercise content utilized for treatment with this system is included for review purposes. These short video-clips may also be prescribed to patients for follow up home exercises. Additional resources are provided as ongoing support to practitioners in this system.

Disrupted neuro-motor control associated with pain, poor posture or altered biomechanics is a component of many chronic or recurring clinical conditions seen by physiotherapists. 

BET PhysioPilates is a progressive, systematic therapeutic exercise system based on the Pilates Method.  Musculoskeletal pain syndromes are evaluated in the context of the body functioning as an integrated muscle and movement system, with the control centered in the trunk.

This course is designed to address specific imbalances in neuromuscular control inherent in musculoskeletal dysfunction, facilitating the restoration of balanced posture, trunk stability, and pain-free movement. 

The participant will be required to develop competence with the exercise curriculum and thereby benefit from training their own ‘center’ while gaining a unique appreciation of the Power of Posture!

The instructors
Rochenda Howard
B.A. (P.E.), B.Sc.P.T., M.Sc.

Rochenda is a Physiotherapist and graduated from the University of Toronto.  Additionally, she holds a B.A. in Physical Education (University of Western Ontario) and an M.Sc. Research degree in Rehabilitation Therapy (Queens University, Canada).  

Rochenda has a special interest in muscle function and motor learning and in how biomechanical and muscle / movement imbalances contribute to painful conditions.  She has continued to pursue this passion for more than 25 years, focusing exclusively on the development of a PILATES–based Physiotherapy treatment system. While living in Hong Kong Rochenda had the privilege to work extensively with Julia Ellis (RBS (TTC), FISTD, ARAD), a gifted ballet teacher, choreographer and Pilates ‘guru’ and together they founded the successful BET Pilates Centre in 1994. They were the first to introduce Pilates in Hong Kong and East Asia and the first in the region to offer an exclusively Pilates –based Physiotherapy approach.  In 2013, Rochenda returned to her native Toronto and established a small PhysioPilates clinic in the West- end where she continues to maintain a full-time practice. In 2006, Rochenda published the first rigorously designed research study on a Pilates - based physiotherapy intervention, the results of this study presented at several conferences internationally. 

Rochenda is a passionate educator having co-developed the BET Pilates training curriculum and she has been active internationally teaching and mentoring Physiotherapists in this system since 1996.

In her spare time, Rochenda enjoys competitive swimming, outdoor activities, cycling, travel, spending time with her two daughters and a good espresso.
