About Clinical Pilates
Pilates is a method of exercise created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. It is essentially a mind-body centering technique that emphasises the importance of starting movement from a central core of stability.
Pilates can be beneficial for EVERYONE. Pilates exercises can help to promote core stability, flexibility, endurance, postural and body awareness and to correct muscle imbalances. Pilates can be ideal for anyone who may:
- Be recovering from an injury or are post-surgery
- Have a long-term health problem
- Need low impact, tailored exercises/activities
- Suffer from back or neck pain
- Be ante or post-natal
- Want to improve their posture, strength, and flexibility
- Looking for a social, fun way to exercise safely
- Flowing movements
Clinical Pilates is a form of Pilates that has been adapted to be used by Physiotherapists to help with prevention and recovery from injuries and health issues. It emphasises the need for correct posture and precision exercises in order to overcome movement dysfunctions. Our Physiotherapists have all undergone Pilates training with the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute). This, alongside their Physiotherapy knowledge, allows them to offer bespoke Pilates for our Clients either as part of a small group or on a 1:1 basis.
All our Pilates Clients will be required to fill out our Screening Questionnaire and attend an Assessment with one of our Physiotherapists prior to joining a class.
