These classes are a good option for those who have completed our Beginners Pilates course or have had individual tuition. Different options of some exercises are given so all participants feel the benefit of working safely whilst being challenged. A variety of equipment is used – stretch bands, poles, balls and rollers.
Pilates helps many of our Osteopathic patients to improve posture and overall flexibility. Increasing core stability is particularly helpful for back pain sufferers. A combination of Pilates and Osteopathy will ensure the best possible combination of muscular and skeletal treatment and rehabilitation. Helen Smith is a highly qualified Pilates Instructor, professional and thorough in her approach. I am happy to recommend her to all my patients. I use Pilates as an integral part of my own fitness regime to improve my sports performance and prevent work-related repetitive injuries.
