What is Pilates?
Pilates is a form of exercise based around improving normal functional movement and biomechanics. When our bodies are injured we tend to compensate with other muscles to allow us to continue with normal movement. This can lead to further injury or muscle imbalance developing. Pilates is a structured exercise program which aims to improve core muscle awareness and function to help stabilise your spine while performing functional movement to challenge your stability. You will use muscles you didn’t even know exist as we train you to improve your posture, stability and flexibility. We aim to rehabilitate your body to ensure optimal function and prevent re-injury.
Clinical Pilates incorporates your whole body and focuses on engaging the deep core and stability muscles as well as correcting muscle imbalances. Our Clinical Pilates sessions are tailored to each individual to ensure they achieve the best results possible. There may be up to 4 people in the session however each individual is doing suitable exercises for their goal/ activity level and being supervised throughout to make sure the exercise is done correctly.
Clinical Pilates involves the use of pilates and mat equipment enabling different levels of difficulty through the use of spring assistance and resistance. Our aim is to progress you to functional exercises similar to your goals to help your rehabilitation.
