Powerful posture and ease of mobility can be yours with Foundation Training

A two hour workshop

Presented by Kate Gray RGN

Fully certified Foundation Training Instructor

What is your posture telling you? and the world around you?

Posture is more than just trying to stand up straight! – Your body constantly adjusts to keep you safe and  functional. Your posture changes continuously with the tasks demanded of the body, whether that be walking,  gardening, playing sports or working at a desk.  Your posture also reflects your emotions – and your emotions can be affected by your posture, especially if it is less than optimal, causing pain or discomfort.

Give your body powerful posture with Foundation Training and PilatesAttend this specialist workshop if you have any of the following concerns:

Painful or poor posture, sciatica, persistent upper/lower back pain, shoulder pain, neck stiffness, poor breathing, tight calves and/or hamstring muscles, knee pain, weak back, osteoporosis, osteopenia, pelvic pain/pelvic floor dysfunction, shoulder restrictions, sedentary lifestyle, high impact sports or you do heavy lifting or manual work.
