Who can benefit
Pilates is a fantastic system of exercise that uses the body as an integrated whole and is designed to create balance within the body, a balance between strength and stability with flexibility and fluidity.
Pilates exercises require full concentration, in order to co-ordinate the breath with the flowing effortless movements. It’s mindfulness through movement. Our Pilates students report huge benefits to not only their physical wellbeing, but their mental wellbeing also.
What to wear: Please wear comfortable clothing that allows easy movement
Pilates at Physio Art
We have five Pilates teachers at Physio Art between them delivering a range of online and in-person classes every week. Each teacher is slightly different bringing their own personality and experiences into the classes.
We teach Pilates on a one to one basis, a one to two basis, and small groups of six. We believe in order to truly benefit from Pilates people need to be taught and closely supervised. We usually recommend that people have a couple of one to one sessions initially, and then we can slot them in to an appropriate group.
Exercises usually take place on a mat or in standing and can include the use of equipment such as therabands, foam rollers, exercise balls and magic circles.
If you are thinking of trying Pilates because you have had some pain or injury recently we usually recommend having an assessment from one of our physios first. A physiotherapy assessment can guide the Pilates teacher with regard to a targeted Pilates based exercise programme.
This type of Pilates class is led by a qualified Physiotherapist, and has many benefits especially if you have pre-existing injuries or medical conditions.
Small class sizes
Class number are no more than 6 at Physio Art, this enables us to pay more attention to each individual and tailor the exercises to the correct level for you, knowing your medical and injury history.
Helps to prevent Injury
Especially for those training or taking part in high intensity sports, the classes can be tailored to help promote strength and flexibility in specific areas like our Pilates for runners class.
Physiotherapists are experts in rehabilitation, so Clinical Pilates is a fantastic combination of expert skills in rehabilitation and Pilates knowledge. This enables us to tailor and modify your Pilates exercises in line with your rehabilitation goals.
You do not have to have pain or injury to take part in this class, this class is for everybody who would like a carefully supervised and progressive class led by a Chartered Physiotherapist.
