Case Study: Knee Pain and Hyper-FlexibilityLori Coleman-Brown Observe & Learn | Mini Workshops (<60 min)
In this brilliant learning session, Lori takes her student Mari through a mat workout that addresses Mari's knee pain. Mari's pain is caused by her overly-flexible joints and, like anyone dealing with this common body issue, she finds it difficult to ‘feel’ anything unless she goes to the very end range of her flexibility. That end range is too far, particularly for a weight-bearing joint such as the knees and the result is inflammation and pain. Lori uses her cues, images and hands-on techniques to help Mari learn to rein in her movement and instead build strength to protect her joints as well as recognize the muscular sensation that is correct alignment. It's an invaluable session for anyone dealing with pain in a hyper-mobile body. Visit Lori at Atlas Pilates in Seattle, Washington where she offers Teacher Training as well as private sessions.
