MOVE Away from Pain

MOVE Away from Pain has been developed by Marie-Claire Prettyman after an accident left her in constant and debilitating pain for many years. As a Pilates, Yoga and sports massage professional for over 20 years, she was baffled as to why she could not rehabilitate herself. This led to a complete educational immersion to understand the science of pain. This book is the culmination of all those experiences.

You do not need to have Pilates and/or Yoga experience to benefit from this book. It is straightforward, no nonsense and easy to follow. Life should not be spent in pain, it’s time to MOVE on.

Opposition in Pilates and Yoga – Newton’s Third Law meets Mindfulness

This guide is designed in such a way that if you do not want to read the text, you can simply look at the direction of energy (arrows) and focus on your body in order to create the most appropriate muscle activity for you.  However, I do strongly recommend reading the first few chapters on ‘Neutral Pelvis & Neutral Spine’, ‘Mindfulness’ and ‘Breathing’, which will help you to understand the method.

Each exercise or posture has text explaining the exercise or pose opposite the associated pictures. The text will guide you if you are not sure.  At the end of each section, there are ‘workouts’ for the more confident practitioner, which range in difficulty.

This is a deeper, more individual and more meaningful approach to movement.
