Pilates is a great way to improve flexibility, posture and build strength for people of all ages and abilities. Specific floor based exercises and spring resisted equipment will be used to train the body’s deep postural and ‘core’ muscles.
It is 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 done pre and post natal.
Pilates classes are already running at Western Region Health. But, before you can join a class you need to attend an introductory class.
An initial introductory class will be a one-on-one class with the instructor and will be designed to familiarize you with the Pilates apparatus. During this class your ability and injuries will be assessed to allow us to design a personalised program.
You will be ready to participate in group classes after your introductory class.
Classes will run at varying times throughout each week day and Saturday mornings. Morning and evening classes will be available.
There will be a maximum of 4 people to one instructor per class. Class sizes are kept small with a focus on individual needs being catered to.
The initial introductory one-one class will cost $80.00, which is booked and paid for at Reception at our Melton Clinic.
From there all classes are booked online through the PILATES BOOK NOW link on the 'Home' page of this website.
Packages available are as follows:
Single session - $45.00
5 Session Pack - $200.00
10 Session Pack - $375.00
20 Session Pack - $665.00
*VIP Monthly membership - $146.00
** Please note you cannot book online until you have attended your initial introductory one on one session
You will get the most benefit from your body by attending 10 weekly classes. Posture, balance, core strength, general fitness and injury prevention will all be improved.
Pilates studies show that after 5 weeks you will see improvements in your strength, co-ordination and flexibility. At the completion of the 10 week program, others observe a noticeable difference in your posture and body shape.
With our online booking system it gives all our clients the option to book a time that best suits you. If you find you can’t make a class you have previously scheduled, log in to the website and remove yourself from the class and find another, it’s as simple as that!
Please remember a minimum of 7hrs notice is required when cancelling a class or you will forfeit that class.
