A lot of my clients ask me what the difference is between a typical pilates class and Clinical Pilates. The Clinical Pilates that we offer at Reform Physiotherapy and Pilates is taught only by a Chartered Physiotherapist and is tailored specifically to your needs and goals.
I start by doing a 1:1 initial assessment with everyone who begins Clinical Pilates. I begin with talking through any injuries or pain you have, and discuss what your goals are. Then I will do a full Physiotherapy assessment where I will look at your posture, strength, flexibility, gait and movement patterns. Based on the assessment, I will design an exercise program specifically for you.
I only offer 1:1 or 3:1 classes so that you will always be working on your own specific program. I feel this small class size allows you to get the maximum benefit from attending a class, and achieve your goals, while exercising safely and effectively.
To keep you interested I combine mat Pilates and small equipment, with Reformer Pilates in all our classes. ‘The Reformer’ uses resistance to make all stretches, strengthening and balance exercises more effective. This allows for a huge variety of exercises ensuring you will never get bored! The varying resistance also means that it can be adapted for beginners, those injured or challenge even the most advanced.
