Even though you may not identify a specific problem requiring treatment, your day-to-day life and regular activities can benefit from Pilates training. Such regular pursuits as office work, golf, gardening, dancing and playing with the kids can all benefit from Mat-Pilates classes.
In contrast to Pilates-Informed Exercise classes, Mat-Pilates (also employing some General/Wellness Pilates) offers exercises to maintain and improve general well-being and leans towards fitness based exercises over a clinical rehabilitation focus. Mat-Pilates is often undertaken in groups of up to 10 people under supervision after an initial one-on-one consultation. It is worth noting that whilst Mat-Pilates classes have a lower price point than our Pilates-Informed exercise classes, they are not rebate-able through private health insurance due to recent changes made by the Private Health Insurance industry (Pilates-Informed exercise classes are still claimable through private health).
Both our Pilates-Informed exercise and Mat-Pilates programs start with a Real-Time Ultrasound to assess the performance of deep-core stabilising muscles.
Pilates-Informed exercise combines therapeutic and remedial exercises to treat a specific injury or condition. It focuses on the re-training and recruitment of deep stabilising muscles (core stability) as well as improving posture, strength and flexibility.
Pilates-Informed exercise classes (as opposed to Mat-Pilates classes) identify key issues and addresses them by applying carefully selected exercises. This ensures optimal gains whilst minimising the likelihood of aggravating the injury.
Our expert practitioners will work through the idiosyncrasies of your particular condition to improve and maintain function. Whether you are injured or requiring rehabilitation, Pilates-Informed exercises can suit the long term user.
