Workshop details

As Pilates instructors we know that many of our clients seek Pilates to help manage and alleviate pain, we ourselves may have found Pilates due to our own pain experiences.

Pilates allows us to re-wire and re-connect with our bodies and this course will further enhance your teaching with strategies and techniques to complement your existing knowledge. The aim of any session when working with a client in pain is adaptability- moving from effort to softness, from detailed attention to broad attention, internal focus to external, all with ease and flexibility.

We will look at pain through all it’s ranges, from low back pain to fibromyalgia, foot & ankle pain to sciatica, sports injuries to chronic pain.

If you already attended this Pilates & Pain Management workshop, this two day course will greatly deepen and broaden your knowledge complimenting your existing understanding.
