If you’ve never done pilates before, don’t worry- we’ve got you! Prior to joining a class it is recommended you attend a Pilates 1:1 consult with one of our physios. Even if you are fit and healthy and participate in other sports and activities, Pilates is unlike any other exercise. During this 1:1 we will teach you the basics, including correct technique and muscle activations to ensure you receive the optimum benefits from your Pilates experience. If you are looking to join our reformer classes, this is also an opportunity to become familiar with the reformer machines.
Even if you have participated in reformer Pilates before, we still recommend you start with an initial 1:1 consultation with a physio. This is because all studios teach their Pilates in a slightly different way and on slightly different reformer machines. Your Physiotherapist will be able to tailor the exercises you are given to specifically address your level, goals and requirements. NB if you wish to claim from your health fund, an initial consultation is required.
If you are currently suffering from an injury (whether acute or chronic) or have any other conditions which impact on your ability to exercise, we recommend an initial consultation with one of our qualified physiotherapists. Following a detailed assessment your physio will advise on appropriate classes for you. It is likely that semi privates/ reformer circuits will be most appropriate initially to allow us to supervise, guide and modify exercises as required.
