What is Pilates?

Pilates originated in the early 20th Century by Joseph Pilates as a form of rehabilitation for victims of the First World War. Today, Pilates has progressed to a series of mind and body exercises designed to strengthen the core muscles, restore postural awareness, improve body alignment, increase flexibility and balance and prevent further injuries.

Clinical Pilates:
Clinical Pilates is Pilates that is instructed by a fully qualified Physiotherapist. Physiotherapists are University qualified professionals that are trained to assess and treat a wide range of injuries. Our Physiotherapist has trained extensively through Polestar Pilates which is one of the few internationally recognised Pilates teacher-training organisations. Using this training in combination with Physiotherapy knowledge, Clinical Pilates provides a fantastic platform for rehabilitation of many common injuries and conditions.

How to enrol?

At Stirling Health Professionals, we are pleased to offer both private and group Clinical Pilates classes. For your safety, it is mandatory that you meet with our Physiotherapist for a 1-on-1 Pilates Assessment prior to commencing any private or group Pilates classes. This assessment will allow you to discuss your current and past medical history and any injury concerns that might affect your ability to perform the exercises. On completion of your Pilates Assessment you will be able to enrol in private or group Pilates classes.

Private Classes:
These are 30-minute individualized sessions instructed by our Physiotherapist. Our Physiotherapist will choose mat-based exercises to meet your specific goals, taking into account any personal injuries. Private classes are ideal for anyone who is unsure about Pilates or wishes to build confidence prior to attending group classes. Private sessions can be booked in during normal Physiotherapy consultation times.

Group Classes:
These are 60-minute group classes run by our Physiotherapist. Our classes are at an intermediate level of difficulty. Variations are given throughout each class to make exercises suitable for all ages and levels of experience.

There is a focus on mat based exercises with the additional use of theraband, stability balls, free weights, foam rollers, exercise balls and balance discs throughout the term to assist in exercise progression. Classes are kept small (8 people) to ensure that each individual can receive supervision and hands-on feedback to be able to perform the exercises in a way that is both safe and effective.

Our Group Pilates classes run for 10 consecutive weeks.

Class times:

Monday 6: 30 PM

Thursday 6:30 PM

Thursday 7:30 PM
