Pilates Class Timetable
10am-11am: Beginners & Improvers
Pain and injury in joints and tissues is often caused by poor body alignment. This results in incorrect and inefficient movement patterns and is often initiated by poor strength in the postural muscles around the spine.
Pilates is a method of activating and toning these muscles and the research has supported its role in improving core stability. Pilates trains us to employ our muscles effectively during dynamic movement. Improving muscle control and postural alignment of the body minimizes uneven wear and tear on tissues during everyday activities.
Pilates can also help to improve performance and prevent recurrence of injury. It has been recognized by physiotherapists as an excellent adjunct to manual therapy and rehabilitation. It helps to remove the cause of pain and dysfunction by strengthening normal movement patterns and improving posture.
Participants who are patients of CityPhysio will first have a Pilates assessment form completed by their physiotherapist, identifying vulnerabilities and muscle weaknesses. Participants who are not CityPhysio patients will be asked to attend 10 minutes early in order to complete a brief screening assessment with the instructor.
