In this workshop aimed at Pilates teachers, see how the mind/body connection is critical to the ever growing Baby Boomer population. Since her diagnosis with ALS, Mari Winsor has used her experience to educate and help others. In this invaluable workshop she explains how Pilates has provided her strength, positivity and courage in the face of her illness. Mari demonstrates ways to work with clients with neurodegenerative diseases like ALS, Parkinson's, or Muscular Dystrophy, including appropriate and safe exercises to promote circulation. She also explains what to listen and feel for when you're assisting a client and leads a complete workout that can be done with a client in a chair. Visit Mari at her website, www.WinsorFit.com. This workshop was filmed at the 2015 Ft. Worth Classical Pilates Conference. Our thanks to host Laura West Strawser and her team. For info on future events, visit Ft Worth Classical Pilates.
