CLASS DESCRIPTIONS AND PRICING

Physio Pilates Mat Classes

Our mat Physio Pilates classes consist of modified mat based exercises to improve strength, stability alignment , flexibility, breathing, posture, and specifically work on muscular imbalances and injury resistance. Our classes offer a blueprint of your body which is often lost through injury and/or trauma, or years of poor posture habits.

We start by establishing a solid foundation through correcting postures and making sure our clients have good core muscle activation. We then move to more challenging exercises that build strength and stability through the whole body. 

We run our classes over 10 week terms. While dropping in for casual classes is welcome, we encourage clients to book a regular class for the full term to avoid missing out.

Unlike the reformer classes, we use all pieces of Pilates equipment including the trapeze table, ladder barrel, combo chair, spine corrector, reformer and small equipment.

 

Classes are taught by Physiotherapists who incorporate their knowledge of anatomy and physiology with the principles of Pilates to establish an exercise program to progress and challenge you towards a fit, balanced, strong and injury resistant body.

Clinical Pilates is a safe and highly efficient workout for people of all ages including pre and postnatal women and the elderly. Every program is individualised and tailored towards your current fitness level.

Clinical Pilates sessions can be:

Small Group Classes 1:4 (1 physio to 4 patients)
