What is Pilates?
Pilates is a great way to improve flexibility, enhance posture and build strength. Pilates classes are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. At our pilates Melton location; we use specific floor based exercises and spring resisted equipment to train the body’s deep postural and ‘core’ muscles.
Pilates classes are also beneficial for general health and fitness, and can be a rehabilitation tool for improving injuries. Balance, control and core strength can all be improved. Pilates can also be beneficial for pre and postnatal mothers.

Pilates classes are already running at Western Region Health. However, before you can join us at our Pilates Melton location, you need to attend an introductory session.
An initial introductory session will be one-on-one with the instructor, and will be designed to familiarise you with the Pilates apparatus. During this class your ability and injuries will be assessed to allow our instructor to design a personalised program.
