We are so excited that Emily from Build & Breathe Pilates will be the Tutor on the upcoming ZOOM FACE TO FACE COURSE.
Emily has an enormous wealth of knowledge about Scoliosis.
Emily was first introduced to Pilates to compliment her rehab from spinal fusion surgery to correct scoliosis. She gained her Level 3 Mat-work Pilates qualification to better understand her own body and give her the confidence to get back to being active and strong. Since qualifying, Emily has undertaken further training in Pilates for Scoliosis and Pilates for Spinal Surgery.
This has in turn allowed Emily to help others with a wide range of conditions – especially those with fused spines as Emily understands the potential anxiety from not being able to join in with other gym classes, and the struggle to gain confidence post surgery.
Our physical and mental health is intertwined and the link is too important to ignore. Pilates is a great way to take control and build both strength and resilience – Emily loves working to help clients who are on a similar journey, growing their ability and connecting with their body.
