Description

Pain Body: The Essentials

In this online Pilates workshop, you will explore the ways we as Pilates teachers can be a guide and aide to our clients who experience chronic pain and disease. By taking a multifaceted approach to understanding pain, and creative ways of reframing it, we can help our clients along the path of the "healer's journey". By getting to the root of the issue we can lift the veils that cloud clarity, and systematically apply wonderful tools from the Pilates studio to help them shed the skin of pain, layer by layer.

As life is an endless cycle of illness and recovery, being able to view it and cue it from an outside perspective is endlessly valuable to your clients in need. This workshop outlines how to talk about pain with your clients, as well as how to create pain-release scenarios inside of the studio.

 Pain Body: Case Study 

In this online Pilates workshop, Casey Marie Herdt explores how to work with clients in active pain by taking them through a Trauma Release Protocol. Unlike her other workshops, the protocol in this case study is unrehearsed and left up to the moment so you can see what it is like to think on your feet and design a therapeutic session based on the body in front of you.

Watch Casey work with a real client dealing with chronic pain to help her find more ease and comfort in her body. This workshop will help you start to think about different ways in which you can bring healing movement to your clients.
