BALANCE PILATES.............New Christmas term 2016
Balance Pilates is new exercise programme being offered by Pilates Health Physiotherapy as of the Christmas 2016 half term.
Pilates Health Physiotherapy has traditionally offered exercise programmes that have a focus on functional ability with a bias to prevention of disability, dynamic postural control, balance and co-ordination.
While Pilates, as an exercise method, has its origins in matwork , as physiotherapists, we recognise how functionally important it is to be challenged to strengthen our stability and balance in more upright positions. This is the basis of Balance Pilates .... a programme that takes the principles of Pilates and adapts them to exercises that will be mainly done in standing and sitting.
Many of you will have already experienced some of these exercises as part of our regular classes. Balance Pilates will work at a slightly slower pace, aiming to develop balance, co-ordination and stability with postural changes.
