Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on developing good posture, core stability, balance, strength, flexibility, controlled movement patterns and correct breathing.
Research has demonstrated strong evidence in support of using Clinical Pilates as a treatment for injuries, particularly chronic low back pain. Clinical Pilates differs from generic Pilates classes in that specific exercises are carefully prescribed, by a qualified Exercise Physiologist or Physiotherapist, to each individual to target their particular injury or issue.
Of course, Clinical Pilates has many benefits for the injury free. Pilates is used widely in the sporting community from club level through to elite athletes. Some of the benefits enjoyed by sportspeople include:
- Improved posture and core stability
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Better balance, coordination and movement control
- Learning or restoring correct movement patterns
- Prevention of injury

Group/Class Clinical Pilates
Our 60-minute classes have a limited number of participants, ensuring that you get the attention you need to achieve your goals. We offer both Matwork and Reformer sessions:
Matwork sessions involve utilizing your own body and small equipment like weighted balls or resistance bands to apply functional challenges. This is the basic form of Clinical Pilates and the place where most people start.
Reformer Pilates involves performing exercises on a specifically designed exercise machine called a Pilates Reformer, which uses springs to apply smooth resistance to movement. Reformer Pilates is typically more challenging and serves as a progression from Matwork to achieve higher levels of movement.
