Pilates

In recent years, Pilates has become recognised as one of the most effective ways to maintain an active and pain free life. We offer a range of Pilates classes in our onsite Studio in Chandlers Ford, to suit all abilities. The classes will help you learn how to move efficiently, giving you strength, control and physical durability. Enthusiastic exercisers, Mum’s to be, the elderly and anyone that values their body, can all benefit from Pilates. If you’re recovering from injury it’s an excellent form of rehabilitation, training your body to ‘move better’, preventing re-occurrences.

Who is Clinical Pilates for? 

Almost everyone would benefit from taking part in Pilates. The exercises can be adapted for all ages and levels of fitness, whether you're recovering from an injury, pregnant, retired or an enthusiastic exerciser. If you tend to suffer with recurrent back or neck pain, taking part in regular Pilates can really help. In fact, it's a great way to ward off or help recovery form many injuries as it really focuses on muscle control, movement and developing strength and flexibility in the whole body. 

Pilates is particularly great for helping:

  • People with ongoing or recurrent back or neck problems
  • With musculoskeletal pain and conditions such as arthritis
  • Athletes and regular exercisers, such as runners, who want to learn how to move well and efficiently, wanting to improve their sporting performance
  • Proactive individuals who want to enhance their physial durability and prevent muscluoskeletal injuries
  • Anyone who wants to improve their strength, stability, co-ordination and balance
  • With rehabilitation following an injury
  • Improve posture and postural awareness

What does Clinical Pilates involve?

All of our classes are mat based, clinical Pilates. These specilaist Clinical Pilates classes, are all led by graduate Physiotherapists and Sports & Rehabilitation Therapists, with specialist experience and education in managing injuries. 

Each class will take you through a series of exercises, aimed at working your 'core' muscles. Exercises can be on the mat and in standing and may involve the use of small weighted Pilates balls, 'magic circles' and gym balls to add interest, variety and challenge to your class. 

All of our courses are progressive and encourage you to develop at your own pace.

There are never more than 10 people in a class, so you always have close supervision and 'hands on' guidance when you need it to helpmake sure you get the most from the classes. 

When are the Pilates classes? 

We run regular classes 6 days a week, including a range of evening classes and a Saturday morning class.

This is commonplace for any Clinical Pilates classes. This 30 minute 1-2-1 appointment will really help you get the most out of the classes. The charge for this is £40.

FAQs

What exactly is Pilates?

Pilates is a system of exercises designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. It was developed in the early 1900's by the German born, Joseph Pilates, who believed physical and mental strength were closely connected. Pilates can be done as part of a class or on a 1-2-1 basis. There are lots of classes to choose from - some are mat based and others may use specialist equipment. 
 
How do I choose a Pilates class?

There are lot's of different types of Pilates and classes to choose from, such as Reformer, Fitness Pilates and mat Pilates. If you're new to Pilates a good place to start is a mat based class. This is the bread and butter of Pilates and the basis on which all other Pilates is built. We progress our mat classes from beginner through to advanced at a pace that suits each individual. 
 
If you've had an injury who better to teach you than a qualified Physiotherapist or Sports Therapist. We integrate all our knowledge and experience into the classes to make sure you progress at the right pace, are challenged appropriately and don't risk re-injuring yourself. It’s almost like having access to ongoing, group physio.
 
You may also want to consider how many people are in the class. The key to Pilates exercises is the quality of the movement. To gain benefit you have to do the exercises correctly. Smaller classes enable the instructor to give individual guidance. We've actually had people come to us after suffering an injury by doing Pilates incorrectly in a large class. At goPhysio, we never have more than 10 people in our classes. 

Why do I need to have a pre-Pilates 1-2-1 before I start a class?

If you haven't already seen us at goPhysio, you will need to come and see one of our Physio Pilates Instructors before you join a class. This is essential so we can screen you for any injuries or particularly weak areas, find out exactly what you want to achieve by coming to Pilates and teach you the basics before you start. This is commonplace for any Clinical Pilates classes. This 30 minute 1-2-1 appointment will really help you get 110% out of the classes. The charge for this is £40.
