What is Pilates?
Pilates is a type of exercise which engages both your body and mind, focusing on core stability, balance, posture, control and breathing. Due to the focus on stabiliser muscles and control through the pelvis and spine, Pilates is particularly effective in the management of lower back pain.
Our Pilates classes are run by experienced Physiotherapists, who are trained in ensuring that all exercise is safe and effective for each individual. Our Physiotherapists will assess each patient to determine exactly which exercises will be the most effective, and if any modifications need to be made. This is particularly important if you are recovering from an injury or have a chronic health concern. We have a maximum of 4 people per class to ensure you get the attention you deserve and the greatest benefit from each session.
