Movement Mastery:

Complex conditions, Engagement & Assessments for Paed clients 

See you on the 23rd of May 2023 at 7PM










This masterclass is going to set you up for prescribing, assessing and engaging paediatric clients of all abilities and complex conditions. 

When teaching KHP practitioners, understanding the magic of using exercise as a holistic development approach is one of the biggest factors in effective initial assessments, intervention, funding and collaboration with other allied health practitioners. So often exercise is overlooked as merely an activity to promote motor skills and improve health outcomes which of course is amazing but movement has the potential to be so much more, particularly for our paediatric clients with more complex conditions. 

I am here to shed some light on the magic of movement. I am going to unpack my 14 years experience paired with the research and literature supporting the links and benefits of movement for holistic development and how that is the essential ingredient in managing complex conditions, engaging children in sessions and setting up a successful initial assessment. 

With an overwhelming interest in Kids Heart Pilates and my courses I am so excited to bring this masterclass to you. Most of the questions I get are in relation to assessment, holistic development, working with kids, engagement and scope and it just so happens that engagement and my holistic approach to exercise interventions are my secret sauce and its these approaches that have allowed me to run my Kids Heart Pilates business for over 14 years and more recently open a paediatric clinic. I will take you through literature and my learnings from the past 14 years running paediatric sessions for kids aged 18 months and up. 

"This course was well designed, user friendly and really suited me as an AEP and Pilates instructor. It gave me knowledge and confidence to work with children in an AEP or Pilates setting.I have loved learning more about child development and how I might apply Pilates principal to children"

Imagine if… 

You walked confidently into every initial session knowing you had set yourself up for success and felt you could manage even the most complex paediatric client. Imagine that you had a confident understanding of how to assess and report on progress so you and other allied health professionals, referrers and parents could see the progress of your intervention. And imagine if you knew and understood the supporting literature so that you could confidently educate, collaborate and connect with other allied health professionals to help more children through movement.

In this masterclass you will walk away with:


  • My simple strategy for managing complex conditions 

  • The evidence based approach I use for engaging kids  

  • My 5 step process for initial assessments 



My courses were specifically designed to onboard my team when I was scaling my business and then I saw the potential in sharing that with the wider community to have a larger impact and make exercise as habitual as brushing teeth for kids. I am here with you to empower freedom and confidence so you can do the work you are capable of. So kids have the opportunity to move and have fun in their therapy.
