Exercise Masterclass

Corrective stretching masterclass 

Friday 25 November at 2pm  

Please join us on Friday 25 November at 2pm where Alan Pearson, level 4 Exercise Coach, will be delivering a masterclass on Movement therapy and corrective stretching. 

Session outline 

This is the fourth in our series of masterclasses by Alan which will focus on corrective stretching and movement therapy that is all about helping people move and feel better in their daily life. The session will cover different types of stretching and mobilisation techniques that will help improve posture, and muscle imbalances and address movement compensations associated with MS. 

We will be identifying the common postural holding patterns in standing and sitting positions and look at areas of tension and restriction, which prevent the efficiency of daily movements. This means specifically identifying muscles that become shortened or overactive as a result of poor postures or have compensated for weakened opposing muscle groups during sitting and when walking.  

To combat tightened and weakened muscle groups, Alan will demonstrate a range of exercises, techniques and strategies to prevent and rehabilitate the commonly affected areas. 

This will be an informative and interactive session so please come and join us for the next MS-UK masterclass. 

If you are unable to attend the masterclass on the day, don’t worry as we will be recording the session. Please register for the session via Eventbrite in the normal way and the link to the recording will be sent shortly after the session finishes. 

There is a suggested donation of £5, but you can donate any amount from £1 to attend.
