Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise combining rehab exercises with Pilates inspired movements using the Pilates machines and small equipment. Clinical Pilates classes at Unity are run by qualified Physiotherapists and instructors and are focused on the individual, with an emphasis on setting and achieving personal goals. A maximum of 3 participants in each clinical Pilates class ensures a supportive atmosphere with personal attention and modifications.

Conditions that would benefit from regular supervised rehab classes: Low back, mid-back or neck pain, returning to high impact exercise after having a baby, diastasis, low back pain, pelvic girdle pain during pregnancy and after pregnancy, any knee or shoulder injuries, anyone wanting to get into Pilates for the first time, anyone wanting more individualised approach to their fitness.

Where to start:
To provide the most effective programme for exercise and rehabilitation, clients must book an Initial Consultation (link to ‘book physio’ page) prior to commencing Clinical Pilates classes.

Following this assessment your physio will guide you through the best exercise pathway tailored for you. Depending on your history and experience with Pilates equipment it is commonly recommended that you begin with 1-3 Private sessions before joining a class. If you would prefer to continue with private instruction this is also an option.
