Pilates is a form of low impact exercise that strengthens the core muscles of the abdomen and lower back. It also improves general flexibility and promotes good posture. Health professionals are therefore increasingly recommending Pilates as a treatment to help ease and prevent muscular aches and pains, and correct postural alignment.
Classes are now being led by Physiotherapists, which makes great sense, given their expert knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, and their experience of rehabilitation by exercise.
By attending a Pilates class led by a Physiotherapist, you can be assured that exercises will be performed safely, effectively and at the appropriate level.
Physio Led Pilates uses modified Pilates techniques pioneered by the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. Pilates can be enjoyed by almost everyone, and is suitable for anyone over 16 years, of any shape, size and ability, including those with postural, spinal, musculoskeletal or neurological conditions. Pilates is also a very safe and effective form of exercise during and after pregnancy.
Although Physio Led Pilates is a more graduated form of Pilates, it is an extremely effective way to tone-up and rehabilitate. You can enjoy the benefits, no matter what level you start at. Remember though as you get stronger, the exercises get tougher to ensure continual results!
