About The Workshop

 This 6 hour workshop will focus on the pathophysiology of the nervous system, you will revise anatomy of the system and how the main aspects work together. The neurological system is vast, complex and controls all of our function and existence. Disease and injury to the system can affect life considerably. The manifestation and effects of the disease or injury will be explored for three conditions: Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis and stroke. The workshop will consist of learning the theory surrounding these conditions, current management of these and also how to tailor your Pilates session to assist the rehabilitation.

You will gain,

  • Increased understanding of working with the neurologically impaired client:  Stroke, Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
  • Increased ability to adapt Pilates practice for this client group.
  • Understand current exercise guidelines for clients with neurological conditions.
