Quotes from recent events include:
"Isobel delivered a 3hr lecture on Hypermobility to us, a group of pilates teacher with a few physios and osteopaths in the mix. It was a really lovely relaxed environment. While going over how Hypermobility is categorised and potentially diagnosed, she also talked about the latest research. Isobel is very generous with her own experiences and as a Pilates teacher this was incredible valuable to see from your clients point of view what they are having to deal with."
Rebecca Gould Pilates Foundation Teacher
"Isobel Knight's workshop on Hypermobility and its many forms is a must for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of this complex condition and its many presentations. Her desire to share her experiences really helps clinicians & movement teachers to have an insight as to how it feels to live with EDS HT. Isobel's book on the subject is not only a wonderful reference, but is also a bible on the subject for those living with the condition, I highly recommend it to all my patients with hyper mobility syndromes."
Mary Thornton, Pilates Teacher and Physiotherapist

A really valuable three hours - just excellent." EDS. Thank you Isobel Knight for sharing your incredible knowledge and making such a positive difference in our lives and the lives of all who benefit from your work."
Magdalen Hardy, Pilates Instructor
"I am looking forward to adding the new Bowen book to my reference material for the benefits and positive application of Bowen Therapy. After reading your book, Managing Ehlers-Danlos (Type III) - Hypermobility Syndrome, I decided to study to become a qualified Bowen Therapist and have been amazed at the results Bowen Therapy has had for my daughter with EDS. Thank you Isobel Knight for sharing your incredible knowledge and making such a positive difference in our lives and the lives of all who benefit from your work."
Karen Haddon, Australia
"Isobel Knight's informative workshop on hypermobility syndrome is a must for all body workers and health professionals. She offers an insight into the physical and psychological effects of this condition. As information and research is still relatively new, Isobel brings some much needed light on a little understood subject. Well presented and with full notes provided this was an excellent workshop."
J. Cooper, Pilates Instructor
"I recently had the pleasure of hearing Isobel speak about Hypermobility and Hypermobility Syndrome on a Continuing Professional Development programme for Pilates teachers at Trinity Laban. Isobel is clearly an expert on the subject and with a vast and deep understanding of the medical, physical and psychological implications of the condition. Instead of being baffled by science Isobel presented her research in an accessible way and was able to answer questions with examples that were relevant to the role of the Pilates teacher. Isobel understands how to deliver the theory so that the information can be turned effectively in to practice. I would recommend any movement specialist to listen to Isobel's findings and advice."
Jade Faithfull, Pilates Instructor
"Isobel does a great job working with patients with chronic pain and hypermobility. They have complex, challenging problems. She is able to offer treatment, guidance and support."
