The Immune System and Associated Immunological Conditions
This two hours and twenty minutes workshop covers the theory behind the immune system. We take a close look at what our immune system is capable of and how it helps us to fight against pathogens entering our body. It truly is an amazing mechanism and is the best defence system we have.
Once we understand the theory behind the immune system, we take a close look at a range of immunological disorders and how the immune system can be compromised. We look at the presenting signs and symptoms of common conditions that you may face in your sessions such as ankylosing spondylitis and lupus.
We look at a range of ‘do’s and don’ts when programming for specific immunological disorders and what we may need to watch out for, even with long-term clients. The workshop also looks at modifications and progressions that may be appropriate and a range of teaching skills, in particular relevant cueing that could be used to help your clients
This workshop will help you to understand immunology and feel confident in teaching your clients with any compromises to their immune system.
This workshop forms part of the Post Graduate Pilates Certificate: Integrating the Pilates Method for Long Term Medical Conditions.
