We have another Masterclass lined up with Abbey Parsons, Polestar NZ Educator & Mentor, on Saturday 27 November ’21 between 10.30am and 12.00pm, called ‘Spine Time’
Spine articulation is one of our main principles within our Polestar repertoire and we all know the famous Joe Pilates quote ‘If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old, if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young’.
Join Abbey Parsons, one of our amazing Polestar NZ Mentor and Educators, on this spinal exploration incorporating disc and spine anatomy, imagery and movement to free up your spine and move with ease and efficiency.
Safe for all bodies as modifications will be given, but if you need to share any limitations with Abbey please arrive online early.
Registration fee only $35! And remember if you are unable to attend the live session we offer you the recording afterwards and we keep it open for you for one week.
We are very fortunate to have Madrid-based Juan Nieto provide TWENTY video modules about Chronic Low Back Pain, which you can access for up to 12 months once you’ve signed up, in your own time and place.
Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) is a multi-dimensional problem, and under this premise we will approach it from different perspectives to design optimal rehab & training programs for people suffering CLBP.
This course presents the most up-to-date and evidence-based reasoning and intervention tools: movement, motor learning, biomechanics, neuroscience, cognitive sciences, communication and of course Pilates will be our allies to achieve the best results for clients with CLBP.
Learn more about how to give a better treatment plan and recovery to clients who suffer from chronic pain.
The 20 video modules provide you the evidence-based framework to help you find your own effective movement interventions to improve workload capacity, facilitate pain modulation, and increase variability. They each vary from 20 to 60 minutes in length, depending on the topic.
