All ages & abilities. Our Clinical Pilates class is aimed particularly at those with back pain, postural issues, arthritis, sports injuries and those with other medical or physical conditions.
Pilates is a conditioning exercise programme that was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. Pilates applied 6 core principles to the exercises that he developed: centering, concentration, control, precision, flow and breathing. These principles connect the body and mind to improve muscle imbalances, posture, strength and function as well as coordination and lung capacity.
Our Clinical Pilates class is taught by a Chartered Physiotherapist who combines original Pilates exercises with her clinical knowledge of biomechanics and muscle control and function to provide safe and effective exercises that are suitable for all levels. Emphasis is laid upon the control and quality of each movement for optimum results.
Clinical Pilates is ideal for those wishing to prevent injuries, those with existing injuries who require rehabilitation as well as those wishing to join a gentle Pilates class to improve their body’s overall condition, posture, strength and function.
Exercises are performed in standing, sitting and lying on a mat. Chairs are also available. Please come wearing loose clothing.
A one-to-one consultation with our Physiotherapist Ruth is required before joining this class to identify your individual needs. Classes are small to ensure individual attention.
£35 for the initial consultation (about 40 minutes).
Classes to be paid on a monthly basis at the first class of each month.
£32 for a four week month.
We advise all new participants to come for an initial one to one consultation. This is to meet Ruth, discuss your personal needs and to have a brief screening to highlight any problems you might have. This allows Ruth to guide you safely through the exercises at the classes. It is a good opportunity for you to learn a few of the fundamental Pilates exercises and to provide you with confidence to start the class.
