Description

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 outside perspective is endlessly valuable to your client's 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.
