Pilates Matwork for the Mature Client

Pilates for the Mature ClientGrowing older does not have to mean giving up on an active lifestyle for your older clients.

Whether it’s continuing to play tennis or golf or simply playing with grandchildren, today’s elders do not easily relinquish the activities that have sustained them throughout their long lives.

Pilates can keep the mature population active, but the Pilates instructors who deal with them need to understand any possible limitations of their elderly clients.

Join us for this one day workshop, Pilates for the Mature Client with BASI Pilates faculty Sheri Long on Wednesday 27th of June, 2018.

We’re very happy to welcome Sheri back to our studio in Dublin.
