I initially trained in Pilates in 2008 and have trained under both Stott Pilates and APPI. I have used Pilates ever since as a part of my rehabilitation in both classes, small groups and one to ones. Pilates is a safe and effective form of exercise which promotes strength, flexibility and balance. One of the benefits of doing Pilates with a Physiotherapist is I can use my understanding of anatomy and injuries to work with you to meet your goals.
I currently offer one to one Pilates sessions. Your first session will involve an assessment and take into account any areas of pain or previous injuries so that the exercises can be designed to suit your needs.
Pilates is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, the oldest person who has attended my class was 89 years old and I have worked with everyone from complete beginners to professional athletes.
It is great for runners to offer strengthening and stability to balance out their running, helps golfers improve their upper limb and trunk mobility and is a great addition for cyclists to balance out tight hamstrings and counteract the time spent on the bike.
Pilates is a great form of exercise to do during pregnancy and also in the post-natal period. I have undertaken additional training to be able to offer this service and guide you to exercise safely in pregnancy and help you to restore your strength in the post-natal period.
If you would like to book an appointment you can do so here.
The initial session including the assessment is £45 for 1 hour which will also introduce you to some basic Pilates movements and principles, ongoing classes are priced in bundles of either 3 or 6.
