Thinking of trying Pilates?

New Year, wanting to get fit…

We offer Pilates Mat Work classes for both patients and the general public who are wanting to strengthen their lower back muscles.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a body conditioning method that works slightly differently to other fitness techniques. It targets the deep postural muscles, by building strength from the inside out. The approach is slow and controlled, giving long term results.

Pilates is suitable for anyone, irrespective of your fitness level. It will help improve your posture and balance, improves flexibility and stability, strengthens and tones muscles and helps relieve stress and tension. It is particularly recommended for anyone with back problems, and is also very suitable for use in rehabilitation following injury.

At Friarswood, Pilates Mat work Classes are kept to a maximum of 12 participants in each class and so will allow you to develop your proficiency as a result of close observation from the physiotherapist for hands on correction. It also ensures a standard of supervision not possible in larger classes, and will give you a real understanding of the concepts behind this unique form of exercise.

Before joining our Pilates Mat Work Classes each participant is required to attend a one –to-one session for an assessment of their needs and an introduction to the basic Pilates principals are taught.

We offer Pilates weekly classes and individual tuition if preferred.

Classes are taught by full qualified physiotherapists trained in Pilates.
