Pilates incorporates strength and stability with movement and flexibility.
It is a low impact style exercise that has many benefits including:
- Increasing body awareness
- Retraining motor control
- Posture correction
- Whole body strengthening and stability
- Improving joint mobility and flexibility
All Physiotherapists at NQ Physio Solutions are trained in Clinical Pilates. Your physio may integrate this style of exercise into your treatment program as part of your rehabilitation. This may include matwork, reformer based exercise or the use of small equipment such as balls, bands or circles.
One-on-one Pilates sessions: If you are new to pilates or have specific needs, individual sessions are available. The initial appointment may include an assessment of your deep abdominal and pelvic floor activation using Real-time ultrasound. It is a requirement that a one-on-one appointment is undertaken prior to attending our Physio Led Exercise Classes.
Pilates Classes: These 45 minute classes are small groups (6 people maximum) led by a Pilates trained Physiotherapist. You may choose to attend one of our Pilates classes for maintenance after recovery from an injury. However, we believe everyone can benefit from pilates, so we also welcome participants to attend classes for general exercise and well-being. There is no need to have a one-on-one assessment prior to attending a Pilates Class. See our Pilates Class Timetable or contact us for more details.
