Pilates (or the Pilates method) is a series of over 500 mat or equipment based exercises inspired by calisthenics, yoga and ballet. Pilates improves flexibility, muscle and 'core' strength, posture improvement and awareness, coordination and balance, relaxation, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries.
Pilates can be an aerobic and non-aerobic form of exercise. It requires concentration and focus, because the body is moved through precise ranges of motion.
Pilates consists of moving through a slow, sustained series of exercises using abdominal control and proper breathing. The quality of each posture is important, not the number of repetitions or how energetically you can move.
Classes are one-on-one and booked on an as need basis with our osteopath Dr Sarah Spadetto. Please call the clinic for further details about availability.
An initial consultation is required for new patients for assessment of your ability and fitness. This takes about an hour. Cancellation fees are payable on late cancellations.
