About Pilates & Group Physiotherapy
Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise designed to increase strength and flexibility as well as tone the muscles and increase fitness. Pilates focuses on control and quality of movement – making it a whole-body workout that you will significantly benefit from.
Our Pilates program involves specialised 1:1, 2:1, group and unsupervised sessions, which experienced therapists and instructors provide. The sessions involve customised programs consisting of reformer based, exercise ball based and mat-based exercises. Before participating in the group program, you must complete a detailed assessment to identify the main issues needing to be addressed. From this assessment, a customised program is designed, which targets the specific needs of your condition.
Sessions aim to enhance core stability, trunk strength, joint flexibility and range of movement, and improve muscle endurance.
