Paul Howse 

The Classical Mat repertoire and its relation to everyday

Modern day is very different to that of one hundred years ago and as such bodies have changed and adapted to suit!!


In this three hour practical workshop Paul will be delivering a twist to the full classical repertoire!!

We will take each exercise in its original sequence and then relate them to today's client looking as to whether they may need some altering or even excluding from the rep.


You will alter, adapt, exclude or possibly  keep each exercise as you go giving you a more balanced routine for your clients needs!!


We will go through each exercise trying the original version and then look at how we can modify to better suit us.


This will be very hands on session and will certainly give you lots to think about !!
