Who can benefit and how?

Pilates is suitable for all age groups, fitness levels and bodies, including people:

  • Looking to improve posture, flexibility, muscle strength and tone
  • Recovering from injury or following surgery
  • Athletes and sports people by improving strength, control and efficiency
  • Work cover and TAC patients
  • School and corporate groups
  • Pre and post natal women

Based on the method introduced by Joseph Pilates more than 75 years ago, Pilates

  • Focuses on your deep postural muscles, commonly known as “the core”
  • Achieves smooth and efficient movement
  • Improves alignment, breathing and body awareness
  • Is a non-impact form of exercise
  • Combines strengthening and stretching simultaneously

In combination with efficient aerobic activity (walking, cycling, swimming, etc), Pilates trains the body to achieve a long lean result.

Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is an individually tailored approach to Pilates, that uses both floor exercise and Pilates equipment.  Our Pilates trained physiotherapists will assess and guide you through a progression of exercises for specific injuries, general fitness or your individual goals.  Your technique and form will be checked and monitored either individually or in a small groups, depending on your preference.

This ensures you will be assessed and guided through a safe progression of exercises as your needs change, and these classes are often covered by private health insurance.

HOW TO GET STARTED WITH CLINICAL PILATES…?

Every individual starting Clinical Pilates with Lake Health Group will require an assessment with our physiotherapist. These assessments run for 30 minutes, and cover your injury/health history, your goals and needs, and a thorough assessment of your posture and strength.

From that assessment, your physiotherapist will recommend to you the best options going forwards.
