What is Physio Pilates?
Pilates, but a little stronger (as will YOU be after giving it a go).
PhysioPilates combines the practice of Pilates as per the principles and teachings of Joseph Pilates (yep, it really is named after a guy called Joe Pilates), plus my own advanced spin on the practice thanks to my background knowledge and application as a Chartered Physiotherapist.
What are the principles of PhysioPilates?
- Body awareness
- Release of tension
- Pelvic and spine positioning
- Stability and Balance
Please refer to the pdfs and how to recordings and videos to guide you through the basic principles.
I’m not very flexible, can I still benefit from the classes?
Your flexibility will improve and you learn to release tension and balance the muscles on movement.
What conditions benefit from Pilates?
It is an extensive list. Many people with back pain find Pilates helpful but it doesn’t just help those with this condition. Other conditions that benefit from Pilates include: neck pain, shoulder issues, hip and knee pain, ankle and feet issues, balance problems, arthritis, weak stomach muscles, poor posture. Please seek advice for specific issues.
I am pregnant, is it suitable for me?
It is inadvisable to do Pilates between 8-14 weeks of pregnancy and wait 6 weeks after the birth before resuming classes.
How long before I feel the benefits of Pilates and how often should I practice Pilates?
I’ll work with you towards your own goals and within your own capabilities, and the membership will keep you accountable with everything you aim for along the way. The sooner you join us, the sooner everything will move into place.
