The course programme will include regular tea breaks, including snacks, and a lunch break. Please note that lunch is not provided.

We will be going through exercises each day, so please ensure that you bring suitable clothing to enable you to perform the practical part of the course comfortably. Female course attendees are advised to wear a sports bra for therapeutic stretching techniques.

I advise all course attendees to have professional liability insurance to cover them for the practical part of the course.

Should you wish to take notes during the course, I recommend that you bring your own note-pad or tablet.
