Polestar Pilates Teacher Training

Educator Highlight : Misty Woodden

Two of my inspirations are Runity and the Oov. These two trainings align with the Polestar principles and have given me new avenues to explore movement and enhanced my rehab “toolbox.” Runity has given me assessment and teaching tools to not only help my clients with their running, but has also improved my own running.

It has also been awesome in several of my clients’ home programs. Read More
