Pilates to Manage Lower Back Pain

 

This course is not designed to diagnose or treat an acute injury.  However, it will give to a better understanding of the anatomy of the spine and pelvis as well as some common musculoskeletal imbalances that cause low back pain.  

 

We will also cover the mechanism of pain and how to use movement and pilates as a "tool-kit" to help manage and prevent future flare-ups and give you the confidence to get moving.

This course will also give you plenty of ideas and tips to help you keep moving if you are finding working from home playing havoc with your posture and impacting on your health.

Love ❤️ Your Feet

 

Our feet form the foundation of our body, providing us with an adaptable balanced contact point to the ground from which we move. 

 

The strength and mobility of our feet can influence our overall alignment and subsequently the health of the joints all the way through the body - for example knees and hips. 

 

Yet most of our foots' life is spent in a cast (shoes) I am in no way saying don’t wear shoes, however, we need to know how to keep our feet mobile and strong to keep them healthy and doing their job well.

This online course covers:

  • An overview of the anatomy of the feet.

  • Common problems.

  • How to keep the feet mobile.

  • How to strengthen the feet. 

  • Quick tips and ideas on all things feet... anything from a foot hangover cure for those nights that you were up late dancing through to tips to deal with planter fasciitis.

Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic pain conditions can be incredibly debilitating and isolating.  I know I have suffered with back pain since a spinal injury when I was seven and have had chronic puedendal neuralgia since an attack on the subway in 2011. 

 

These experiences have totally changed the way I teach as I have had to learn to work WITH my nervous system to allow me to function at all. 

I also use mindfulness, CBT and hypnotherapy to help with pain management and down regulation of pain.
