Clinical Pilates is a modified series of Pilates exercises that removes any major contradicted exercises and forms a balance of achievable exercises for anyone. Using adapted exercises and levels from 1-5 for progression and modification.
When I started practicing Pilates over 10 years ago I was recovering from a prolapsed disc, on daily pain medication and I had limited movement. I had taken weeks off of work to recover and I wanted to get myself back to health. I practised daily and worked with a local physiotherapist and Pilates teacher and had amazing results.
I wanted to bring all the best parts of my experience to my clients. I trained with The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute in London and have been teaching alongside my therapy and in classes ever since.
Clinical Pilates is suitable for those with Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Joint Replacements, Prolapsed Discs and many other major pain conditions and injuries. That’s why I love it!! No one is discriminated against!! There’s a level of exercise or a modification for everyone.
So what does it involve?
Matwork predominately in seated, standing and lying down positions. You will possibly use some small equipment like bands and balls to stretch, mobilise joints & soft tissues, gain control of your spinal stabilisers, build your ‘core’ stability, balance, & much more.
