The PILATES method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. It is a form of exercise that focuses on posture, balance, core stability, strength, flexibility and breathing control.
There is strong evidence to support the use of therapeutic exercise in the management of patients with injuries, including sports injuries and lower back pain. Physiotherapy and Pilates therefore work very well together.
Clinical Pilates differs from generic Pilates in that an individuals needs and key issues are firstly identified, and then exercises are carefully prescribed to enhance and progress a person whilst minimizing the risk of injury aggravation. As Chartered Physiotherapists, at our Bath Pilates studio we don't teach Pilates for Pilates sake, but more that it is a tool to aid rehabilitation.
Pilates is suitable for all ages and fitness, and it can help with a range of different issues, including:
Our service is ideal for people who are looking for injury management; those who are new to Pilates; those who struggle to attend a regular class; or those who would like some 1:1 tutoring to improve their performance in a community class they already attend.
Why not take advantage of the fact that we are Chartered Physiotherapists who specialise in clinical Pilates. Maybe you're looking for someone to start you off with some simple core exercises that you can do at home; you may have a specific goal you are aiming for such as a sporting event or an everyday activity that you find difficult; or perhaps an issue you would like to address such as back pain, flexibility or posture.
We are also able to offer 1:1, 2:1, and 3:1 Pilates classes at Milsom Street and at Bath Leisure Centre, which can either be on a regular or ad hoc basis.
Is Pilates good for Seniors? Well Joseph Pilates practiced his craft well in to his 80s so why not give it a try? In fact you’ll notice great improvements in strength, balance and flexibility which can suffer as you get older.
Can I undertake Pilates if I am pregnant? We have participants who are both pregnant and who come to us after their pregnancy. Pilates can help build core strength in your abdominals, lower back and your pelvic floor which can make pregnancy and delivery more comfortable. Conversely if you want to get your figure back more quickly following pregnancy then Pilates is a great tool to use.
