About The Workshop

This 6 hour workshop will explore both theoretical and practical aspects of how to handle your MS client in the studio with best results


The morning session will concentrate mainly on information of this chronic condition, its causes, manifestation in different people in different stages of their lives ,grades, treatment available


We will hear the history of a person affected by MS who will join us for the day, demonstrate, give feedback and hopefully bridge the gap between theory and reality.


The afternoon session will be practical:


●        which repertoire do we choose,


●       do’s and dont’s,


●       what are our tools as pilates practitioners to progress our client, if at all,


lots of surprises there…...


  • The main benefit of this workshop is to give the Pilates practitioner the confidence to help and support clients affected by MS - it is so rewarding!

Workshop Review

"Enlightening....mainly to observe specific client and understand their ability and how we can adjust their programme..."
"It was new to me to learn about the right amount of repetitions and the number of springs..."
"I finally got practical tools to work with neurological conditions..."
"I am no longer afraid to work with someone with MS... you taught me how to observe weaknesses in their gait... I'd love to work with you again...
