Clinical Pilates

What are Clinical Pilates Classes?

They are the leading form of exercise targeting control/stability, strength, endurance, flexibility and coordination. Great emphasis is placed on correct posture and optimal biomechanics designed to improve efficiency to move. It can be floor or equipment based including mat-work with small apparatus (balls/bands), reformers, wunda chairs and trapeze tables.

Clinical Pilates classes are taught by Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologist for clients with current or previous injuries or pain. Individual programs are developed which target problem areas and goals to achieve best possible results. Programs are designed for all levels, from first timers to advanced.

Why do Clinical Pilates Classes?

It is well known that pain can inhibit the function of the surrounding muscles and the way we move. Once pain has gone the muscle function does not automatically return to normal. It is necessary to improve motor control and strength to address this movement dysfunction and reduce likelihood of pain returning again.
