If you suffer with lower back pain and want to know how to improve it through your pilates practice then this workshop is for you. We teach a lot of clients who suffer with discomfort in this area either from bad postural habits, pregnancy, or a old or current injury. Many physiotherapists will tell you to come to pilates, and for good reason. It is an excellent practice for spinal health and posture, and with a bit of commitment you can reverse old habits by starting to practice pilates in your everyday life as well as in class. I will be taking you through a number of common reformer exercises, explaining modifications and adjustments so that you can remember them for next time you come to class. The workshop will be part practical and part learning through demonstration and observation. Observing other people can be very useful to spot mistakes and start recognising them in your own body, as we don't always get to watch ourselves. You should be able to come away from the workshop with a new understanding on how lower back pain can manifest in the body, and some tips on how to make your pilates class more comfortable and enjoyable.

If you want to ask me(Scarlet) any questions about this or whether you'd be a good candidate for it, please speak to me after class or send us an email. If you have a spinal injury that I don't already know about, please let me know before you sign up so we can discuss it. Otherwise, I hope to see some of you there!
