It is also recommended that male clients wear Skins under their shorts.
IS PILATES RIGHT FOR ME?
Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates as a rehabilitation program for soldiers injured in World War One. The program aimed to help soldiers regain their health by strengthening, stretching and stabilising key muscles. Over time pilates has become popular amongst dancers and professional athletes, but it is highly beneficial for ordinary people looking to improve their movements in day to day activities.
Pilates focuses on the core and lengthening the body and aligning the spine. This makes it great for improving awareness of your posture and can help alleviate and prevent back, neck and joint pain.
We believe pilates should be accessible for every one. It is not a fad, but a lifestyle choice that can help you to move better throughout every day life.
HOW OLD (OR YOUNG) DO I NEED TO BE?
We currently have clients ranging in age from 10 to about 75. Classes can be tailored to suit your skill and strength levels. Regular pilates sessions will help you learn to move your body the right way so you can keep doing what you want to do for a long time.
CAN I CLAIM LESSONS FROM MY HEALTH FUND
Receipts are emailed to clients for all initial consultations, introduction to pilates sessions & multiple class purchases. Clients can claim on our pilates services with some private health funds. Please check with your health fund to see if your policy covers it.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO PILATES?
Completing two sessions or more a week is recommended. This helps you build body awareness, strength and flexibility faster.
You can combine mat and studio classes to get good results.
DO YOU OFFER Mums & Bubs SESSIONS?
Mums and Bubs sessions may be available depending on demand. These sessions are ideal for gently building up core strength and getting back into exercise. These are studio sessions incorporating the use of equipment such as the reformer, trapeze table and some mat work.
WILL PILATES HELP WITH MY INJURY RECOVERY?
