Title of workshop: Movement Strategies for the hypermobile client
Workshop description: Hypermobility can go way beyond having flexibility. When working with this population we need to be aware of the possible other symptoms and conditions such as Ehlers-Danlos (EDS). Chronic pain is often part of this syndrome and this course will cover how to work with chronic pain. By the end of the course, the participant will - Understand the latest research and context within which EDS sites in medical history - Have the knowledge and skills to work effectively and confidently with this population - Understand the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of this disease - Learn practical movement strategies for their own clients. Jeannie has been teaching Pilates for over 10 years. She qualified with Polestar Pilates. Through her own hypermobility and EDS, she was drawn to working with this population so brings a personal perspective to the course. Her studios now focus on the EDS community giving her a wealth of experience to share. Polestar Pilates UK invited Jeannie to teach workshops to their teachers in London. She is also a mentor for Polestar Pilates. She speaks at EDS Conferences globally and runs webinars for teachers and patients alike.
