This workshop is the first of its kind in the fitness industry (beyond simply teaching Pilates) to offer a comprehensive review and strategy for working with students who are suffering and/or recovering from Lyme Disease! The Pilates for Lyme Disease workshop covers the illness in depth and the complexities of the disease that make it challenging. Participants will learn the ins and outs of Lyme Disease and walk away with the confidence and tools to work with this expanding population. As part of this course, we will:
-Review Lyme Disease pathology, treatment, and recovery strategies for working with clients.
-Address painful symptoms associated with both Lyme Disease and Post-Lyme recovery and learn ways to alleviate the discomforts using a Pilates-based approach.
-Teach Pilates-based exercises to address many of the most common symptoms of Lyme Disease, including: joint pain, muscle stiffness, fatigue, chronic pain/inflammation, and neck pain
-Understand Neurological Lyme Disease and how to address the physical symptoms such as balance, gait problems, vertigo, and potential nerve damage-related issues. An additional benefit of this workshop is that the material covered can also be applied to your regular students. Because Lyme Disease has so many symptoms and potential complications, you will find that many of its symptoms we address will easily apply to non-Lyme clients.
- joint and muscle pain (specifically focusing on knees, hips, elbows, shoulders)
- neck pain/stiffness
- neurological conditions (i.e M.S., ALS, etc)
