Hypermobility can affect the whole body but one of the most common and badly affected areas are the knees.
In this masterclass, Suzanne will talk you through how to spot signs of hypermobility in clients and how you can help clients with hyper-extended knees to improve their strength and control in this area, in order to better support the joints and prevent strain and injury.
This class uses foam rollers and a Reformer with jumpboard.
