All this is based on the latest evidence based research to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.
Based on a foundation of mindful movement, also known as "contrology," Reformer Pilates offers a form of exercise suitable for all ages and abilities, injuries, chronic conditions and general health and well-being. As quoted by Joseph Pilates himself "Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit."
Clinical Pilates is a specialised form of exercise devised by physiotherapists and clinical physiologists using spring loaded equipment to improve body control, strength and balance. Clinical Pilates focuses on strengthening the patients "core stability" muscles, such as the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, that act as the support system for our spine and pelvis. Increases in core strength can help reduce low back and neck pain and improved body posture, movement and function.
Why Choose Clinical Pilates at Body Smart?
Clinical Pilates programs are individually designed after a musculoskeletal assessment has taken place with our Exercise Physiologists. Many other Pilates classes are too often generic and don't cater for the persons specific goals being met. Your clinical Pilates program then aims to improve patients posture, core strength and stability, flexibility, balance and breathing with a specific focus on learning control issues that may be contributing to pain or reduced function.
