Pilates is a form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967). It offers mind and body conditioning focusing on core strength, co-ordination, flexibility and posture, using a range of mat and equipment based exercise. Pilates achieves this through engaging the deep postural and stabilising muscles.
More recently Pilates has been adapted for use in the management of a range of musculoskeletal conditions, to improve health and well-being, as well as for athletes, professional sports people and fitness enthusiasts. It is suitable for all ages and abilities and is appropriate post pregnancy.
As physiotherapists trained in Pilates, we understand the types of injuries you have had in the past or are still experiencing and the movements that should be encouraged or avoided during Pilates. Exercises can then be tailored to your specific needs.
All Pilates is led by Chartered Physiotherapist Laura Gardner-Wedge who is a Certified Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) Instructor.
