Pilates is a great way to reduce injuries or to rehabilitate after an injury or operation.
We offer small Pilates classes, or one on one mat Pilates sessions with Laura Quinn, a qualified physiotherapist and Pilates instructor.
What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates is a great low impact series of exercises designed to build core and spinal strength, increase flexibility, to teach body awareness and control, improve posture and breathing awareness through functional movements. During the session we concentrate on accurately teaching and progressing deep spinal and abdominal muscle strengthening, awareness of the alignment of ribcage, pelvis and spine, and correcting muscle imbalances. Pilates is particularly important after neck and back injuries, to help with postural pain, to prevent new injuries or recurrence of old injuries or if you just want to get stronger and feel better in your daily life.
How do Clinical Pilates exercises work?
With pilates you train the core muscles around your spine, but you are also working the rest of the body too. Our sessions are gradually progressed, ensuring you are able to perform the exercises with the correct technique, and progressively building your strength.
