The Refined Senior
Discover the joy of working with the older client
With an ageing population those of us working with Pilates will be faced with an increasing list of clients who are getting older. Understand the common health problems associated with aging, how to assess movement in an older client and learn some fun exercises to incorporate into your Pilates exercise repertoire when dealing with the aging client.


Pilates and Parkinson’s Disease
Learn how Pilates can impact one of the most prevalent neurological conditions in the world. Parkinson’s Disease is the second most common neurological condition in Australia after Stroke. Parkinson’s Disease has always been thought to be more common than the diagnoses’ suggest. These days Parkinson’s is more accurately diagnosed and picked up earlier. Without a doubt Parkinson’s disease clients will present in your Pilates practice whether diagnosed or undiagnosed you will see the symptoms and knowing how to manage it can really benefit the client and make a client for life!

Note from the curator:
Susan is known for her fun and gentle teaching style. As an experienced Physiotherapist and movement practitioner you are in safe and wise hands.

You will leave these workshops with confidence to work with clients at the upper age range who rely on us to continue to live with comfort and excitement. Pilates should be a fun and rewarding experience no matter what age you begin!

Be prepared to think critically about how you train this amazing cohort of clients and finally understand how the physiological changes associated with ageing and Neurological conditions effect the Pilates experience.
