PILATES

Pilates is a mind-body exercise modality which was developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967) who named his method 'Contrology'.  After his passing they renamed it to 'Pilates' in his honour.  This approach is ideal for everyone regardless of age or level of fitness.  It is useful as a work out or to recondition after an injury, surgery, postural adaptations or musculoskeletal condition.

Benefits of Pilates exercises include:

  • Builds core strength and stability

  • Improves posture and alignment

  • Increases flexibility, balance and coordination

  • Improves muscular balance and strength

  • Increases muscular endurance and tone

  • Prevents injury and heightens body awareness

  • Enhances athletic performance

  • Relieves stress and back pain

"If your spine is stiff at 30, you are old.

If it is flexible when you are 60, you are young" Joseph Pilates

I have practiced Pilates since a young age as this was introduced to me as a compliment to my dance training.  I hold qualifications in STOTT PILATES® Matwork and machinery (Reformer and Cadillac) and feel that it integrates well with Osteopathy.  

 

Having a strong clinical understanding of how exercises can help with injury management enables me to ensure exercises are safe appropriate and effective.

I currently offer the following:

'Bolt on' clinical session

This is one to one session is designed to compliment Osteopathic care you are receiving.  This 30 minute clinical session can be added after your treatment to ensure you feel confident and are safe in performing exercises specific to your presenting complaint.

Small Group Matwork

Classes focus on supporting individuals in developing an understanding of the Pilates repertoire.  Classes personalised based on who is attending, this can include those with injuries, reconditioning, postural related problems and those who enjoy mind-body exercise.

Online Pilates sessions

I am delighted to say that I am offering online Pilates sessions.  Please contact me directly if you would like information about either 1:1 or my group class.
