Pilates is a system of movement designed to strengthen and tone the whole body from the inside out. It focuses on proper breathing, correct skeletal alignment, and creating graceful, easy, efficient movement strategies. Pilates improves flexibility, coordination, posture, body awareness, and biomechanics. It transform the way your body looks, feels and functions!
Pilates is an invaluable tool for rehabilitating an injury or working to correct inefficient posture patterns (the source of many injuries!). All exercises can be modified to suit the needs of each individual participant- regardless of the client’s physical limitations. Further, many professional athletes and dancers are now using Pilates to prevent injuries, and/or recover from them faster. Sessions at Fairlawn Physiotherapy are done on a mat or a reformer, with a range of small props used to train and challenge deep core stabilizers.
