Pilates is a great way to improve your muscle strength so you can use your body more efficiently. Many musculoskeletal problems are caused by poor posture and Pilates targets the muscles which help you to maintain correct posture. Exercises that improve your general fitness can also be included in your programme.

Pilates is a type of exercise developed by a man called Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s and 1930’s. If you look at the original photos you will see that some of his exercises involved great flexibility and strength. Our clinical training allows us to modify those exercises so they are suitable for almost everyone. Your individual problems will be assessed and then exercises prescribed to target the specific muscles or joints needing improved strength or flexibility. You will be taught to use your deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles to provide a strong base from which the other parts of you body can work. Exercises are graded and progressed to help you rehabilitate from injury. As your function improves you will be able to incorporate your Pilates principals into harder exercises to build up general strength and fitness to cope with every day activities. Exercises can be made very challenging with the addition of greater resistance and less supported positions to suit fitter people involved in sporting activities.

Our clinic runs one-on-one and two-on-one sessions so your exercise can be closely supervised. You will have an Initial Consultation first in which your problems will be assessed and you will be introduced to the Pilates principals, equipment and exercises. All sessions will last for one hour. We have a reformer plus tower, a stand alone tower and a spilt pedal chair plus small equipment to increase the focus of the exercises.
