Trainer Michal Brosh
I am a physiotherapist and a Pilates instructor living in Amsterdam. I would like to invite you to my physio-pilates workshops, where we will explore Pilates exercises and postures from a therapeutic point of view.
Pilates is one of my favorite tools to work with, as it can be easily translated to be used in daily activity. Moreover, it raises body awareness, which is the key for curing most bodily complaints and can prevent injury. In the workshop we will go through some of the basic principles of physio-pilates. The aim would be to give you tools to manage your complaints and, most importantly, to discuss how to prevent injury or further injury!

The foam roller is a great tool to vary and challenge your pilates workout. Therefore we will start with some core pilates exercises.Then we will use the it to massage our muscles and alleviate fascial tension.

About the trainer:
Hi, I am Michal, a physiotherapist since 2011 and a Pilates instructor since 2006As a therapist I combine the movement world with evidence-based studies. I follow Stuart McGill approach and find it necessary to adjust some pilates exercises .
I have adapted most Pilates exercises to make them safe and efficient to my physiotherapy clients. In addition, more practically, I’ve translated some basic pilates exercises into complex movements in daily life (ADL). This is the second year I’ve been giving this workshop for clients/ patients who suffer from Back pain.I have noticed an interest and a need of instructors for a comprehensive FysioPilates workshop, and therefore I would like offer you this opportunity for a unique workshop in your field of expertise.
