The Endocrine System + Associated Conditions
Approximately 2 hours long, this workshop discusses the endocrine system. The workshops firstly takes you through the anatomy of the endocrine system and how it works. Key glands within the body are identified such as the thyroid and adrenal glands which can help with our understanding on how hormones are created and secreted within our body.
Once we have established an understanding of the function of the endocrine system, we take a look at common conditions that affect the endocrine system such as hyper/hypothyroidism and also how the menopause can also play havoc with our hormones.
Once you have a clear understanding of how hormones play a vital part in the structure and function of the human body, you will be able to adapt your teaching skills appropriate to your individual clients which can play a key role in helping our clients progress in pilates. A must see for many fitness professionals.
This workshop forms part of the Post Graduate Pilates Certificate: Integrating the Pilates Method for Long Term Medical Conditions.
