Pilates is an ever popular form of exercise which focuses on deep muscles around the pelvis and spine, aiming to develop good posture and efficient body movement. Modified Pilates can be helpful for a wide range of people, including those with back pain, recovering from sports or work related injuries and during and after pregnancy as well as for those simply wishing to develop a more toned, supple body. Because Pilates requires concentration on precise and controlled movements, it can also promote relaxation of mind and body.

What to expect:
Classes last around 1 hour. All classes will be led by a chartered physiotherapist, certified to teach Pilates by the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) which uses a modified form of Pilates, allowing exercises to be tailored more specifically to each individual.
Before you start the classes, you will be asked to complete a short screening form to check if there are any reasons why you should not participate in the classes and to alert the class instructor of any specific modifications you may require.
Classes will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants to allow the instructor to check each individual’s quality of movement and posture as they exercise. Class participants should wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise and must be able to get on and off a mat on the floor. You will be required to bring along your own mat.
