What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a modified form of traditional Pilates developed by physiotherapists which, focusses on activating your core muscles whilst performing various functional movements. It can:
Help correct muscle imbalance &/or weakness
Improve flexibility, core and body strength
Improve posture and body awareness.
Traditional Pilates was devised by Joseph Pilates, who was influential in rehabilitating the wounded in hospitals in the early 1900s and further working with elite sports and dance people.

Why Physiotherapy Lead Pilates?
As a Chartered Physiotherapist and Certified APPI Pilates Instructor you will be in safe hands what ever level you may be, complete beginner or advanced. There are extensive variations to the core Pilates exercises. These can be modified to make them harder or easier with, or without the use of equipment.
We have a variety of Pilates equipment such as Mats, Theraband, Ova Balls, Magic Circles, weighted balls and large Swiss Balls to make things interesting! Before commencing Pilates, there is a health screening form we ask all participants to complete so we are able to look after your individual needs correctly. It's best to wear comfortable, stretch clothing which will allow you to move freely.
