Virtual recorded course with Juan Nieto

We are very fortunate to have Madrid-based Juan Nieto provide TWENTY video modules about Chronic Low Back Pain, which you can access for up to 12 months once you’ve signed up, in your own time and place.

Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) is a multi-dimensional problem, and under this premise we will approach it from different perspectives to design optimal rehab & training programs for people suffering CLBP.

This course presents the most up-to-date and evidence-based reasoning and intervention tools: movement, motor learning, biomechanics, neuroscience, cognitive sciences, communication and of course Pilates will be our allies to achieve the best results for clients with CLBP.

Learn more about how to give a better treatment plan and recovery to clients who suffer from chronic pain.

The 20 video modules provide you the evidence-based framework to help you find your own effective movement interventions to improve workload capacity, facilitate pain modulation, and increase variability. They each vary from 20 to 60 minutes in length, depending on the topic.

Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from previous participants in this incredibly enriching learning experience:

Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from previous participants in this incredibly enriching learning experience:


‘Juan’s Chronic Low Back Pain course is amazing; he examines all the aspects that may be affecting chronic low back pain from the latest research, with comprehensive examples. The virtual presentation works well: videos that you work through by yourself. I thoroughly recommend it to any Pilates instructor or movement teacher.’

‘I like the format, being able to absorb the information better. Juan is very clear in his delivery and with a great background science support and experience. It makes me rethink heaps my way of teaching, somehow unstructured it, a little bit scary, but happy to be in this journey.’

Juan Nieto Polestar Pilates Training Educator
Juan Nieto

Juan Nieto PT, DO, PMA-CPT has been developing his career as movement therapist and trainer since 2002. Initially he started working intensively as a manual therapist. This experience led him to explore the movement-related sciences as a complement to his treatments.

He became a Polestar® Pilates certified instructor in 2003 when he discovered the true potential of the Pilates method as a rehabilitation technique. From then Juan has been focused on researching and developing therapeutic and performance applications within the Pilates environment.

In 2004, Juan co-founded SLINGS and manages movement studios in Madrid and Barcelona. In 2009 he debuted as Polestar® educator and licensee for Spain. During the last 10 years Juan is a frequent international lecturer specialized in rehabilitation through movement and athletic performance.

In 2016 Juan founded Runity, a new start-up born to revolutionize the way the world runs.

After thousands of hours of experience, research, study and education, Juan has defined his very particular way to address treatments and trainings, based on these three principles:

  • No movement nor learning: no therapy.
  • Rehab and training involves progressive overload and increasing movement variability.
  • Movement development from isolation to whole body integration.

Juan’s background and education summary is impressive:

  • Degree in Physical Therapy
  • Master in Osteopathy
  • PMA Certified Pilates Teacher
  • Polestar Pilates Instructor in Studio, Rehab and Mat
  • Running Technique Coach
  • Massage Therapist
  • Level I Gyrotonic instructor
  • Franklin Method Teacher
  • Kinetic Control Practitioner
  • Anatomy Trains Practitioner
  • FMS & SFMA Practitioner
  • Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner
