Description

Scoliosis and spinal fusion clients often feel isolated and orphaned by the medical and fitness communities. Integrating these populations into regular Pilates group classes can be a challenge, but is also extremely rewarding. 


What's your strategy when a person with scoliosis or a spinal fusion drops into a Pilates group class you’re teaching? You most likely you totally freak out, hope you don’t hurt them, secretly pray they never come back, and hope earnestly for the hour to be over quickly. Millions of people around the world fall into these categories, and there’s a very high likelihood that if you haven’t had one drop into your classes yet, you will soon.

In this online Pilates workshop, Erin Myers will teach you how to combat the fear and to instead welcome, encourage, and guide clients who are dealing with these issues and who desperately need your help.
