About The Workshop

Pain is complex, it involves multiple body systems and can manifest in several ways. Clients with pain can sometimes be more difficult to manage, especially if their pain is not understood. This workshop will cover pain physiology, the benefits of pain perception, how pain has been scientifically researched, what physiological changes happen during acute and prolonged pain experiences, persistent pain conditions e.g. Fibromyalgia, current pain treatment modalities for pain and how to approach pain in the Pilates setting.


  • Understand how and why pain exists
  • Understand current strategies for persistent pain
  • Consider what approach to take for Pilates clients with persistent pain
