DO YOU STRUGGLE TO PERFORM CERTAIN EXERCISES IN A CLASS BECAUSE OF A COMPLEX INJURY OR PAIN?
"Clinical Pilates" is the term used to describe Pilates tuition performed by qualified Allied Health Practitioners. Consulting with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist to learn Pilates is a better option if you are experiencing symptoms when trying to exercise or if you have a complex medical condition. Some Pilates exercises can be difficult and others inappropriate for certain physical problems.
Sometimes they just need to be modified to accommodate an individual to make them safe and comfortable and sometimes you may require a different approach to exercise. Our staff are qualified to teach Pilates but are first and foremost Allied Health. Having the extra knowledge regarding anatomy, physiology and biomechanics can sometimes make all the difference to your ability to exercise safely and comfortably.
