PILATES “our version of Pilates”

We love our Pilates classes and so do our clients.

We must admit they are a little different to the norm.  What we want is for you to be able to feel where your body is in space.  We want to teach you where it should be, how to get it there and most importantly to use the right muscles in the process.  The class will focus on coordination, strength and flexibility.

All of our classes are mat classes, they are 1 hour long and generally have a maximum of 8 people per class.  They are led by our trained physiotherapists. The classes are done in 5 week blocks and are $175 for the 5 weeks. The classes are therefore $35 each.

To ensure that your instructor knows you and your body well we do a detailed assessment first.  We want to find out what’s happened to you in the past, what you want to get out of coming and of course figure out what you need to do in order to get there.  Each assessment is 30 minutes long and costs $105.

If you have any questions about any of our classes, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@physiotherapyclinic.com.au.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Current Pilates Timetable

Pregnancy

If you are pregnant then this is the class for you.   It doesn’t matter how far along you are (we have ladies anywhere from 6 weeks to 40 weeks!), how fit you are, or if you’ve never set foot in a Pilates room before.  Everyone is welcome. The maximum for this class are 8 participants.

These classes aim in particular at preventing Abdominal Separation (Diastasis Rectus Abdominus), preventing Pelvic Pain and promoting awareness of your Pelvic Floor.

As we are exercising we chat a lot about pregnancy, about delivery and of course what life may be like after the baby has come out!  We give lots of tips about how you can help your body deal with these things as we go.  Think of it like a mothers group in reverse!

Post-natal

Oh how different your body will feel after having a baby, and what different things your body needs to do in order to look after the baby (very repetitive things!).  At this time more than ever it is important to know how to hold yourself well.  It is important to look after your body, to do exercises that are safe, exercises that can help make you feel the best you possibly can. The maximum for this class are 7 participants.

These classes aim in particular at loosing stiff upper backs (often a result of all of that feeding!), reducing Abdominal Separation (Diastasis Rectus Abdominus), re-engaging your Core muscles and promoting awareness of your Pelvic Floor.

Babies are welcome and encouraged!

General

This class is for anyone and everyone.  There will be people in there with back pain, with calf pain, with neck pain and sometimes with no pain at all! The maximum for this class are 8 participants.

It will cover everything.  You will do some stretching, some strength work and of course it will teach you how best to hold your body in many different situations.  The instructor will know your body well; what it can and can’t do and will customize the class to you accordingly.

Adolescents

Study, homework, iPads, iPhones, computers, heavy backpacks…. all of these things do not do wonders for your posture.  This class is aimed at building awareness around posture; around where your body should be when you stand, sit and move.  It builds strength but at the same time keeps everything flexible.  We believe that starting now, in your teen years, is the best chance you have to prevent problems in the future. The maximum for this class are 6 participants.

This class is run by Chloe, our Paediatric Physiotherapist.  She will know the ins and outs of every body in the class and will target the exercises to each of them individually.

Tummy Time

We want Tummy Time to be a fun time!  But as many parents know this is not always the case.  If you are struggling to get your baby to do tummy time; struggling to think of different ways to make it fun and appealing…. then this is the class for you. The maximum for this class are 5 participants.

It runs for 45 minutes and usually has baby’s between two to six months in there and of course is run by our very own Paediatric Physiotherapist Chloe.

If you have any questions about any of our classes, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@physiotherapyclinic.com.au.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
