Clinical Pilates

 

   

 

At our Clinical Pilates Studio in Leicester we offer a range of Pilates classes throughout the week. Clinical Pilates uses the principles and exercises of the Pilates method, combined with physiotherapist assessment and rehabilitative skills. This provides a safe and effective means to enhance recovery from injury, or just to enable participation in a rewarding and beneficial exercise programme. 

 

The studio offers a unique two-step system of classes to suit individual needs:  

 

Pilates Focus

  • This class focuses on specific muscle groups, deep-core control and strengthening. 

 

Pilates Flex

  • This class focuses on whole body flexibilty, movement control, balance and co-ordination, based on a background of core-muscle strength.  

 

Clinical Pilates can be undertaken on a one to one basis or as part of a small group (maximum five people). Exercises are generally floor-based, but may be interspersed with exercise using specialised equipment to enhance effect. 

 

How Pilates works

 

Pilates is a unique body conditioning and postural alignment exercise technique. Exercises target deep muscles within the abdomen and pelvic floor which connect the spine, pelvis, hips and shoulder girdle. These muscles assist in the maintenance of good posture and provide the foundation for all body movements. Improved posture control can reduce stresses placed on muscles and joints and make movement more energy efficient and flowing. Pilates can therefore be particularly beneficial in the management of back injuries and arthritis, as well as during pregnancy and following childbirth, and in training for sport.     

 

The many benefits of Pilates include:                                                                                   

  • Improved posture
  • Greater flexibility
  • Improved balance
  • Better core muscle strength
  • A firmer, flatter stomach
  • Relief of stress and tension
