Why did Annette train to teach these classes?

I’ve some clients that no longer have treatments and have MS, Parkinson’s, had a heart attack, recovering from medical illness or issues or spine conditions and hear how much they miss their treatments.

So I trained in teaching exercise classes with them in mind, and because the exercises are at a slower pace, they could be back receiving help through exercises rather than treatments.

Having had pneumonia and sepsis the restrictions from inflammation, aches, pains and deathly fatigue was quite debilitating. So much so, it inspired me to find a way to help myself through movement as I rested so much. I searched to find a course to help others with limited abilities become more able and comfortable. 

Professor Sir Muir Grey recognises the benefits to these exercises, as does the NHS

Whether you want to learn more about yourself, get rid of old habits which are holding you back, enjoy head and face massage, reflexology or a deep tissue massage, grow as a person, get help overcoming any challenges in life such as redundancy, setting up a new business, stop smoking, lose weight, overcome boredom and lack of enthusiasm for life. Literally anything which is getting on your wick and no longer has a purpose in your life, this is the lady to see."
