Join Beth Kaplanek, RN, PMA®-CPT, Post-Rehab specialist with Polestar Pilates and co-author of Pilates for Hip and Knee Syndromes and Arthroplasties (now published in 4 languages) when she comes to MOVE for this valuable and informative workshop!
This workshop will focus on developing the techniques for creating a safe and effective class for clients with a history of pathology – including disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, stenosis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and joint replacements – which still incorporates flow and challenges for this population.
Course will include reviewing contraindications for movement for different pathologies, details on designing a class, and lab on both mat and Reformer where participants will both teach and experience these modifications to the traditional repertoire based on a variety of pathologies. Beth will teach the use of specific cueing and teaching continuity for guiding post-rehabilitation clients through a successful movement experience, helping them achieve their fitness goals.
