Pilates begins with developing ‘static’ control first (that is, the ability to identify neutral/middle of your body and facilitate the body’s controlling mechanisms)

Then progresses to

  1. incorporate gentle movements whilst challenging the body to maintain the neutral position. This can be a combination of bilateral movements as well as unilateral movements
  2. improve the endurance of the body’s controlling mechanisms
  3. further challenge the body’s stabilising system by adding additional co-ordination of movements
  4. gradually manipulate other variables such as resistance and speed but NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF LOSING CONTROL

The Physio Essentials Pilates Method starts with an Assessment Consultation with our experienced and Pilates qualified, Physiotherapists. Here, we establish what delivery of Pilates will be suitable for you. That is, a 1 on 1 scenario, group scenario, rehabilitation sessions, clinical sessions or equipment classes. This allows us to ensure that we suggest to you, the most suitable program to challenge your individual ability.

We will then work to progress you to continually ensure you are always challenged within realistic targets and means. This is achieved through closely monitored, small sessions with regular assessments to ensure your program is always tailored to your individual needs.
