Pilates is a fantastic tool for preventing injury and for rehabilitation, improving posture and in the treatment and management of back pain. The last few years have seen great advances in the research supporting abdominal stabilisation/core stability exercises for management of back pain.
Clinical Pilates differs from standard Pilates only in that the principles have been adapted to improve the safety and effectiveness of the exercises and highlight the key elements that improve back pain. The aim of Clinical Pilates is to assess the movement and control of the whole spine and pelvic region, then use specific exercises to help correct the problem areas. We focus on the quality and precision on the movement rather than repetitions and quantity.
Small Pilates classes for all abilities are held at the clinic on Monday and Wednesday lunchtime (12:00), early Thursday morning (9:15) and 2 classes on a Thursday evening (5:30 and 6:40). With a maximum of 4 people, the classes are run in 6 week terms when possible, if block booked its £12 per class or £14 each if booked as individual one off lessons. Contact us if you have any questions about these classes.
