What is Pilates?
Pilates is a intelligent form of exercise that integrates body and mind. Pilates uses unique exercises and sequences to bring alignment, posture and balance to the entire body. Pilates helps you to balance strength with flexibility to minimise undue stress across joints. Great emphasis is placed on correct breathing techniques to provide stability to movement and oxygenation to the entire body.
What can Pilates help me with?
Consistent Pilates practice may help with:
Reduced muscular and joint pain
Stability and strength
Muscular balance to release areas of unequal tension
Pregnancy - including preparing your body for pregnancy; stabilisation during pregnancy; post-natal recovery; and postural alignment and strength whilst carrying and breastfeeding your baby
Body awareness - performed consistently, Pilates exercises generate a strong sense of body awareness that carries through into your daily activities to help reduce poor posture, one of key contributors to back and neck pain.
Sports performance - all of the above factors combine to create extremely efficient movement, help to prevent injuries occurring and enhance recovery between sessions.
Private Class (1-2 people)
One person - $60/hr
Two people - $70/hr
Private classes provide you with an individualised workout specifically tailored to your needs. This is ideal if you are completely new to Pilates, recovering from an injury, have an ongoing issue such as scoliosis, are pregnant or simply prefer a one on one approach. You can have a weekly private class or if you are disciplined enough, have a private class every 4-6 weeks and practice home exercises in between sessions.
The private classes are mat-based classes with the use of small equipment only so exercises are easily replicated at home.
