Pilates in a form of exercise which promotes core stability and mobility. It was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century.
There are two forms of Pilates:
- Reformer Pilates
- Mat-based Pilates – As the name would suggest, this involves exercises that are performed standing, kneeling or lying on a mat.It may or may not involve the use of light equipment, such as the fitness circle, resistance bands and/or small weights.
When it is practiced regularly, Pilates has been shown to improve flexibility and build strength. Pilates is frequently incorporated into physio treatment sessions for the rehabilitation or prevention of back and neck pain.
At Clonee Physiotherapy, we offer Pilates sessions on a one-to-one basis. We also run group classes from time to time. Owner and lead Physiotherapist, Nicola Cadden, is a STOTT-certified Pilates instructor.
