Physio-led Pilates is provided at Physiocentric by our partners Corefit Physiotherapy. A team of specially trained physios working in our onsite studio.
Developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), Pilates is based on a set of principles which exercise the whole body. This is achieved through a range of mat and equipment based exercises. Pilates focuses on postural correction and flexibility. Exercises are designed to encourage the correct activation of deep postural and stability muscles in co-ordination with breathing and limb movement. For this reason Pilates positively changes and reshapes the body if practised correctly and regularly,. Consequently it is the perfect complement to other types of training, and for this reason many athletes and sportsmen now incorporate it within their training routine.
Physiotherapists guide each client through a progressive Pilates programme based on ongoing assessment. Subsequently by modifying movement, posture and physical function we aim to improve each individual’s wellbeing. We provide clients with the opportunity to learn about their bodies as they will have a better understanding of how to cope with their physical daily demands with ease and without pain. For this reason we provide clients with appropriately prescribed, well coached exercise sessions in conjuction with a home exercise programme. We also advise clients on ergonomics at work and suggestions on positive lifestyle adjustments. As a result we believe this holistic approach allows clients to achieve positive life changing outcomes.
