Pilates is a fantastic exercise class 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.
Zoom Pilates Classes:
For now Pilates classes will remain remotely on Zoom, we will await further guidance on when we can return to face to face classes safely and efficiently.
Zoom has provided some great memories and fun stories over the past year and is something we will try and incorporate in the future for those who are unable to attend our classes ‘live’.
If you would like to give it a go, come and join us online for £4.50 per class. Classes are booked in blocks of 5 or 10 (you can book for one trial session for £4.50 before committing further). We record all the classes so that if there any technical hiccups or you can not make the session then you will receive a recording of the class.
- Monday 10 am or 6:30 pm
- Wednesday 12 noon
- Thursday at 10 am
Once you have signed up we will email you a secure link to the classes each week, usually 30-60 mins prior to the class starting.
You don’t need much space, just a mat or a towel on the floor, maybe a cushion for comfort. We occasionally use resistance bands but we always give alternatives for those that don’t have them.
We do require new clients to fill out a health questionnaire….and then we are good to go!
