The Physio Essentials Pilates Method starts with an Assessment Consultation with one of our Pilates trained Physiotherapists. Here, we perform a thorough Assessment to establish your needs, goals and what delivery of Pilates will be suitable for you. That is,

  • 1 on 1 or group environment?
  • Rehabilitation, Clinical or Equipment session types?
  • Number of sessions per week to address your needs?
  • frequency of reviews?

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.

The Physio Essentials Pilates Method revolves around with developing awareness of the body, its position and how to identify and move different joints and parts of the body.

To ensure that each of our client’s can have their individual needs catered to, The Physio Essentials Pilates Method is delivered across 3 session types. These allow for different client:instructor ratio’s, and varied detail of feedback and guidance in order to address client’s individual needs. It also allows for Physio Essentials to cater to different learning styles and methods and client comfort in an exercise environment.

All our sessions use the full variety of equipment available in our studio, including commercial grade Reformer Beds, Trapeze Beds and more. With every person receiving their own individualised program (put together from the Pilates Assessment). This allows you to ensure the exercises prescribed to you are suitable to you, but you still have the enjoyment of exercising in a group environment.
