October 20, 2019 - 10am – 1pm Low Back Pain & Pilates:

Flexion Based Programs (3 PMA CECs)

Low back pain is prevalent and the same Pilates exercise can aid or aggravate different clients. This workshop will focus on understanding the common low back conditions of lumbosacral strain, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis, as well as why spinal flexion can aid and spinal extensions aggravate them. Participants will learn novel Pilates-based exercises and modifications for classical Pilates exercises designed to build necessary three dimensional core strength that emphasize flexion and neutral positions, while avoiding excessive spinal hyperextension


October 20, 2019 - 2pm – 5pm Low Back Pain & Pilates:

Extension Based Programs (3 PMA CECs)

This workshop will focus on understanding the common low back conditions of disc injury, flat back, and osteoporosis, as well as why spinal flexion can exacerbate these conditions. Participants will learn novel Pilates-based exercises and modifications for classical Pilates exercises designed to build necessary core strength to promote a healthy back that emphasize the use of extension and neutral positions, while avoiding excessive flexion.


Investment: $200 for full day (includes both topics) prior to 9/20/19; $250 after
