Pilates is a system of low impact exercises which involve controlled stretching, movements and breathing developed from the work of Joseph Pilates. They are designed to improve posture, physical strength, flexibility and to improve mental awareness. Top athletes use it for injury prevention.
Part of an Active Lifestyle
Professional dancers have known the benefits of Pilates for decades.
The New Zealand All Blacks have incorporated Pilates into their weekly training schedule to strengthen their core, improve their mobility and help prevent injury.
Strengthening the diaphragm, stretching tight muscles and improving posture all help runners to run for longer with less effort. As running exerts great stress on the lower back and lower joints, any imbalance in the muscular usage of the legs and hips can cause pain and injury, which Pilates can prevent.
An innovative system of mind-body exercise, Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek and toned body as well as a flat abdomen. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement.
Pilates improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can even help alleviate back pain.
We offer a range of different class options to suit individual needs and preferences. Whether it is a one-to-one session, a group mat-work class or classes centred around the needs of a particular sport or discipline (such as running, triathletics, golfers etc) or that are injury and/or condition specific (for example back pain, pre/post natal etc), we provide it at ProPhysio.
Specialist classes can also be arranged for Sports Teams on request. Contact us today for further details.
