What does a Clinical Pilates session involve?

An initial Pilates Assessment will be conducted by a physiotherapist on your first visit to determine your goals and current/past medical and pain history.

A specific programme will then be created tailored to your specific needs which will involve a combination of Matwork and Reformer Pilates Exercises.

Sessions will be conducted one on one with a physiotherapist who is a clinical pilates instructor for 40 minutes.

Please wear comfortable clothing and socks.

Matwork Pilates

Matwork Pilates exercises are conducted on the mat using your body weight to challenge your core stabilizing muscles. Each exercise has a precise movement and breathing pattern to target different muscle groups and goals. Small equipment such as theraband, small balls or fitball may be used.

Reformer Pilates

The Reformer is a common piece of Pilates equipment which incorporates the use of springs and straps to create resistance. Reformer exercises assist to progress and challenge clients.
