How Do I Get Involved?

A thorough Pilates Assessment prior to commencement must be done to take into consideration any pre-existing conditions and assist with identifying specific areas of weakness. Your physiotherapist will instruct you on how to best activate your “core” muscles and introduce you to some of the exercises/equipment utilised in class. Following the assessment, your physiotherapist will help you decide which of the following options meets your needs.

Option One – Join a Class

In each class, members are limited to ensure that exercises can be modified to help address individual needs. It consists of a series of stretching and breathing exercises followed by a combination of mat and equipment-based exercises.

Option Two – Clinical Pilates Classes

These classes are limited to a maximum of 4 persons. Each person will have a different exercise program. The physiotherapist will ensure these exercises are performed correctly to address each client’s specific needs to meet their goals.

Option Three – One on One Individual Instruction

A physiotherapist can provide you with a tailored Pilates program to meet your personal needs. Individual attention from your physiotherapist allows for specific retraining and rehabilitation to assist in quicker achievement of goals. You may wish to independently continue your exercises by utilising a membership to our fully equipped gymnasium.
