This 60 minute mat pilates class is great for beginners, or anyone who hasn’t exercised for a while. Classes are often performed using small resistance equipment such as magic circles, theraband and pilates balls to build strength and muscular endurance.
Physiolates, previously called Clinical Pilates is a clinical exercise class conducted by a physiotherapist. It involves a 1:1 physiotherapy assessment to identify your specific goals and any injuries or movement impairments that may need to be addressed within the program. It includes the use of real-time ultrasound to assess and teach the correct activation of the deep core stability muscles.
Based on this detailed assessment a comprehensive individualised program is developed, drawing from the repertoire of pilates, yoga, clinical exercise & mindfulness practises. The program is instructed on a 1:1 basis for 1-2 sessions. Once you’ve completed these initial sessions you’ll be able to join one of the scheduled Physiolates classes comprising up to 4 participants.
These 60 minute sessions are conducted by a highly trained experienced physiotherapist and can be used as an effective form of prehab and rehabilitation.
After attending an initial physiotherapy assessment to identify your goals and any injuries or movement issues that you would like to address, your physio will develop your individualised program. Working 1:1 with the physio will help you to correct any dysfunctional movement patterns or muscle imbalances that may be causing injury.
Your individually tailored program will also be loaded onto physiapp so that you can work on your program remotely or from home when you’re not able to make it in to the studio.
