Physio Supervised Clinical Pilates

Physiotherapists now widely use Pilates as an enjoyable and extremely effective way to prevent and rehabilitate from injury. 

It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, normal breathing control, and developing a strong core or center (toning the abdominals while strengthening the back), as well as improving coordination and balance.

Pilates was initially developed by German, Joseph Pilates, during the First World War, to rehabilitate injured soldiers. It then became popular with dancers and performers as a way to stretch and strengthen the body, through a gentle but effective workout. Pilates has continued to become increasingly popular, due to its focus on posture and good alignment.

Pregnancy Pilates / pre and post natal Pilates

Pregnancy Pilates is an extemely beneficial addition to any pregnancy fitness routine. It is important you exercise safely and regularly during pregnancy to reduce the risk of pain, discomfort and injury in this pre-natal time, as well as preparing your body for childbirth, the recovery period from this and having you ready for your initial time as being a mum.

Physiologix offers pregnancy Pilates in many forms from a circuit-style class utilising a range of pilates equipment, through to a smaller 1:3 class, through to an individual 1:1 for those requiring more help, support and care. All our staff are highly qualified physiotherapists and we also have a Physiotherapist with a specila interest in Women’s Health. All participants have at least one 1:1 session during which you learn to correctly activate your abdominal and pelvic floor  using ultrasound imaging. Programs are individually taylored to accommodate to each woman’s ability.

Classes, Unsupervised or Individual?

6-1 Group Classes

(limited to 6-7 people)

Classes will use specialised equipment and exercises to ensure recovery and strengthening of muscles essential to having a stable, strong body. You will have an individualised program which you carry out in a circuit style class. You will be doing exercises specific to you and your needs, at your own pace, in your own time.

An initial, one off, one to one consultation with the physio, before you start attending the class, will teach you how to activate your deep core muscles correctly. To ensure this is done correctly ultrasound imaging is used allowing the muscles to be seen on the ultrasound screen as you learn to contract them. In this session you will also learn some of the basics of pilates and some of the exercises in the class.
