Clinical Pilates

Pilates has become recognised as one of the most effective ways to enjoy an active and pain free life. 

Since 2006, goPhysio has offered specialist Pilates classes in Chandlers Ford. We offer you both Clinical mat based Pilates classes as well as specialist equipment based Clinical Reformer Pilates from our spacious and fully equipped, onsite, air conditioned Studio.

Who is Clinical Pilates for? 

Almost everyone could 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 a competitive athlete. 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 throughout the whole body. 

Pilates helps you learn how to move efficiently, giving you strength, control and physical durability. At goPhysio, you'll be under the expert guidance of one of our experienced Clinical Instructors. Enthusiastic exercisers, Mum’s to be, the elderly and anyone that values investing in their body, can benefit from Pilates. If you’re recovering from injury it’s an excellent form of rehabilitation, training your body to ‘move better’, preventing re-injury and helping manage long term conditions. 

Pilates is particularly great for helping:

  • People with ongoing or recurrent back or neck problems
  • Long term 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
  • Pro-active individuals who want to enhance their physical durability and prevent musculoskeletal injuries
  • Anyone who wants to improve their strength, stability, co-ordination and balance
  • Rehabilitation following an injury
  • Improve posture and postural awareness

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, PiYo 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 and Rehabilitation 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 physiotherapy. 

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 11 people in our classes, they are often much smaller than this. 

Why do I need to have a Pilates induction before I start a class?

If you haven't already seen us at goPhysio, you will need to come and see one of our 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 appointment will really help you get 110% out of the classes.
