Clinical Pilates: build strength, tone & increase flexibility
Pilates was originally developed for rehabilitation but is now a popular form of exercise. Clinical Pilates involves the key Pilates principles and combines therapeutic and remedial exercises to treat specific injuries or conditions. Exercises focus on re-training and recruitment of deep stabilising muscles (core stability) as well as correcting posture and improving strength and flexibility.
Your initial appointment will be a comprehensive consultation with one of our tertiary trained Allied Health professionals who has also completed additional qualifications to become a Clinical Pilates instructor. This approach ensures you get more than just a fitness session. Our instructors have profound knowledge of specific injuries and can adapt exercises and develop a rehabilitation plan tailored to your individual needs and capabilities.
All exercises range from beginner to intermediate to advanced. This is why we keep our classes small - your safety and well being is vitally important.

All classes are directly supervised by allied health professionals who also have additional clincial Pilates qualifications.
