Pilates has traditionally been used by dancers and sports people to enhance posture and prevent injury. Over the years this style of exercise has evolved to cater for the general public and those recovering from injury to help restore and maintain the bodies natural movement and function. Pilates movements strengthen the stabilising muscles around the spine while facilitating valuable flexibility. There is an emphasis on breath work and mindful awareness of movement, which are both essential components of healthy movement patterns. Pilates is a terrific way to stretch and strengthen your body with the capacity to prevent or rehabilitate an injury along the way.
All individual sessions and classes are 60 minutes and are available on Wednesday/Thursday/Friday or at other times by request. For more information please call the clinic on 9560 0129.
The most effective way to achieve optimal results is to learn Pilates on a one-to-one basis, where a very tailored-to-your-individual-needs program will be established. A 'hands-on' approach is employed to ensure correct alignment and basic principles are followed within exercises, along with continuous consultation, using reformer and studio equipment as well as mat work. We will work together to advance as necessary. These classes will involve very personal attention, with a focus on your body's strengths and weaknesses in line with your particular goals.
