The Beginner Pilates class will help you gain a foundation of the classical mat exercises and is extremely beneficial to those getting started with pilates for the first time. This class will help you master the fundamentals before moving into more advanced Pilates, so you can get the best results and avoid injury. You will develop a deeper understanding of your own body and how your body moves. These Pilates exercises are performed on the mat with exercise balls, stretch bands, and more.
The Intermediate Pilates Class builds on the fundamental mat exercises and will take you through a dynamic, challenging, full-body workout. You will continue to improve flexibility and core strength while incorporating more coordination and intensity to your workout.
Pilates is a form of mind-body exercise that strengthens the whole body, with focus on the core and back. This pilates class will help you increase your flexibility, balance, and develop efficient body biomechanics for better functional movement. It is a progressive 8 week session taught by Marcie Easthope who is a Registered Physiotherapist at Physiotherapy III and Certified Pilates Instructor through Physicalmind Institute. The sessions are with the same group, to progressively challenge the group with fun and creative methods to improve your overall well-being.
An individual Physiotherapy assessment is performed at the beginning of the 8 week program with Marcie Easthope BHSc (Hons), MSc (PT). Individual assessment prior to the session will identify any underlying concerns or restrictions to exercise in order to minimise risk of injury and to increase the effectiveness of exercise. On the day of assessment, specific exercises will be taught, and a hand out of pilates exercises will be given in order to perform some of the exercises at home.
The cost is $200 for the 8 week session, $50 Fee for Physiotherapy Assessment, which can be both covered through extended health benefits, as Pilates will be taught by a Registered Physiotherapist.
