What is Pilates?
Pilates is a technique that is based around posture, core stability, strength, flexibility and correct breathing techniques. Pilates can be extremely beneficial for improving your general health and fitness, core stability, pelvic floor, and muscle tone, as well as being an excellent tool for the rehabilitation of number of musculoskeletal injuries and medical conditions.
What is the difference between generic Pilates and Clinical Pilates?
As opposed to generic Pilates, Clinical Pilates is instructed by a highly qualified Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist. Undertaking Clinical Pilates will ensure you are thoroughly assessed so that your Pilates exercises can be carefully selected to suit your individual needs. This will not only ensure that you will achieve optimal outcomes from your Pilates, but also minimises the likelihood of aggravating any current or pre-existing injuries.
What can I expect from my Clinical Pilates sessions at DNA Health Group?
At DNA Health Group, our Exercise Physiologists are highly experienced and qualified in Clinical Pilates and our private Pilates studio will enable you to undertake private (1-on-1) and semi-private (1-on-2) sessions, as well as small group classes (maximum of 3 – 4 participants). Prior to undertaking your Pilates exercises, we will perform a thorough health and musculoskeletal assessment to ensure we can tailor your program to suit your needs. We will also recommend whether you will be best suited to private sessions or small group classes. Our Pilates services are suitable for those who have never undertaken any exercise or Pilates, as well as those who are more experienced.
