Clinical Pilates

Why Pilates?

  • Pilates aims to strengthen and engage the ‘core’ whilst simultaneously completing controlled movements for improved mobility, posture, tone, balance and wellbeing.
  • It has something to offer everyone, helping a wide range of ages and fitness abilities to improve their physical and emotional health.
  • Pilates classes are ideal for clients with common musculoskeletal complaints such as back pain, and for those hoping to reduce their risk of injury.

Ok, so why Physiotherapist led Pilates?

Our clients have a musculoskeletal assessment with a chartered Physiotherapist prior to starting class, where individualized goals and aims are discussed, and even better our small class sizes mean that we are able to keep these goals in mind. During this assessment you will be taught how to properly engage your deep ‘core’ muscles, the foundation of all Pilates movements and the tricky part to master! As physiotherapists we understand anatomy and pathologies, therefore are able to provide advice to improve function both throughout the class and in every day activity.
