Based upon an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems, your Pilates instructor will design and customized an exercise programme specifically for you. This will be based on her assessment of your body’s movement patterns and after a discussion about your needs and any previous injuries.
Pilates exercises integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function whilst maintaining precision and control. It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from many other forms of exercise. In fact, Pilates classes can very often compliment treatments provided by physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and massage therapists to restore function post injury. Collaborative working between health professionals and your Pilates instructor is extremely beneficial in speeding up your recovery from injury by sharing knowledge and goals.
