Pilates is a method of exercise, designed for conditioning and strengthening the muscles that support the spine, pelvis and peripheral joints. In rehabilitation we use Pilates to re-educate and re-balance the musculo-skeletal system by restoring normal muscle recruitment patterns, which are vital for the execution of efficient pain-free movement and prevention of further dysfunction and injury.
Each client is taken through a full Musculo-skeletal assessment which gives us an idea exactly what is or is not working in their body. From there the client has a private session during which the principles of Pilates are explained and the client is introduced to their program with a specific spotlight on the areas of weakness that were identified during the initial consultation. Thereafter the client may either continue with the private sessions or progress into a class. Each class has a maximum of 3 people and the instructor circulates around the class allowing for individual attention throughout the session.
