Physio-Led Pilates

 

 

Pilates is essentially a mind-body centring technique, which emphasises the importance of beginning movement from a central core of stability, namely the lumbo-pelvic region. 

Joseph Pilates believed that by concentrating on precision of movement, awareness of breath control, and a continued flowing movement, you could alter abnormal patterns of movement and achieve a carryover effect into normal everyday activities.  

The original Matwork series of 34 exercises by Joseph Pilates were performed in a set rythmn, for a set number of repetitions. 

 All of our instructors at Kendal Physio are chartered Physiotherapists who have trained with APPI (The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates institute). APPI have taken the original matwork exercises, and modified them to be more suitable for the people with different musculoskeletal problems 

We like to ensure each person attending our classes has a high level of coaching and support to ensure they maintain a good technique whilst performing the exercises. This is why we only allow small class sizes of between 8-10 people so no one gets forgotten at the back at the back of the class. 

Who it can help

Pilates can help to:  

  • rehabilitate or prevent injuries related to muscle imbalances 
  • manage stress and promote relaxation.
  •  Improve your balance and flexibility. 
  • Safely rehabilitate joint and spinal injuries.
