What is it?
This is not a Pilates class in the usual sense of the word.
Firstly, it‘s taken by a qualified, clinically trained Physiotherapist. And second, it’s a totally bespoke approach. So instead of everyone in the room doing the same exercises at the same time, you’ll all be working on your own individual programme, designed around your specific objectives and needs, and with the Physio present to lead you through it, stage by stage.

Your Physio may also use specific manual techniques (such as joint mobilisation, soft tissue release and taping) to enhance your programme.
To get the most out of your classes and to see the completion of your goals we suggest you attend these sessions regularly once or twice a week for 6 weeks.
The results and benefits will depend on your reasons for attending, but you should expect them to include:
