The Center’s 1 or 2 day Pilates for Menopause Certification takes liberties with the traditional concepts of symptoms of menopause and shows you a different perspective to the abilities of the maturing female body.
This course is designed to look at the causes and symptoms of menopause and to gain a new vision of how to train a more mature woman as she adapts to yet another change in her female life.
