The Hypermobile Learner

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

STOP PRESS! Last minute places have become available on the course. Contact Lesley McPherson for more details at info@classicalpilatesuk.com

Lesley McPherson, Director of Classical Pilates UK, and BAPAM’s Glasgow clinician, Dr Faith Gardener, are running a workshop for teachers and coaches involved in teaching movement and sport, looking at the hypermobile learner.

This event takes place on June 21st 2014 in Troon, Ayrshire

Please note: this event is not organised by BAPAM and we receive no income from it. 

Anyone from adults, young dancers and athletes can be hypermobile and this presents unique challenges to the teacher and the student. This workshop will address not only the science and how to recognise hypermobility but will touch on the psychology of hypermobility and the application of exercise to strengthen the hypermobile student.

Attendance costs £140 including lunch. If you are interested in booking a place please email Lesley McPherson – info@classicalpilatesuk.com

The organisers have informed us that they are nearly full for this session and are therefore building up a waiting list. Enough interest will generate further dates so please let them know as soon as possible if you’d like to attend.
