Pilates is a body conditioning method that works in a different way to other fitness techniques. Targeting the deep postural muscles, Pilates works by building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment.
The medical world is now realising the benefits of the Pilates method for the prevention and rehabilitation of back injuries. In order to prevent a recurrence of back pain, it is essential to retrain the deep abdominal and spinal muscles.
Pilates focuses on building an efficient 'central core'. In Pilates, 'central core' refers to the Transversus Abdominus (TrA) muscle, multifidus, pelvic floor and diaphragm.
Who can benefit from Pilates techniques?
Pilates suits all ages and fitness levels and is particularly beneficially for those with back pain, poor postures, neurological conditions, mental health conditions, sports injuries, arthritis, stress related illness and before and after pregnancy.
Classes run in blocks of six weeks, and are led by our physiotherapists who are all trained by the Australian Pilates and Physiotherapy Institute.
