Clinical Pilates & Post Natal Pilates

Susan also runs modified Pilates classes which are a series of exercises that address certain body imbalances or on-going pain/problems you may be having. It enables the correct activation of certain core muscles such as multifidus, transverse abdominus and the pelvic floor. Research has shown that specific retraining of the core muscles can reduce the reoccurrence of low back pain.

Pilates can be an excellent way to tone up, gain flexibility and control over your body as well as Improve postural and body awareness.

Post natal Pilates can be done on an individual basis or a part of a class. The Pilates sessions can also be done with you and one other individual, for example this maybe a friend or family member .Doing it this way will help reduce the cost of a more individual tailored Pilates plan.
