What is Pilates?

Clinical Pilates focus’ on improving flexibility, posture, balance and strength for people of all ages and abilities. Alongside being a rehabilitation tool for managing injuries, Pilates is also beneficial for general health and fitness.

This is completed in our state of the art studio where we used specialised equipment to assist and challenge clients dependant on their individual circumstance.

The Initial Assessment

The initial introductory class is a one-on-one session with a qualified Osteopath and is designed to familiarize you with the Pilates apparatus. During the session your ability and injuries will be assessed to allow us to determine your Pilates level. 

After completing your initial assessment, you will be able to join classes using our online booking system. In these sessions an individualised program will be utilised during the group sessions to see optimise progress and success towards each client’s goal.
