Pilates in Bendigo
What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a specialised form of pilates, with individually designed programs based on a thorough assessment of your problems. It is safe, gentle and highly effective, using a combination of floor and specialised equipment-based exercises targeted at improving core stability, flexibility and efficient movement patterns and postures.
Clinical Pilates uses concepts of concentration, centering, control, flowing movement, precision and breathing coordination, to improve movement, function and ultimately quality of life.
Its principles promote efficient movement patterns and specific recruitment and utilisation of central stabilizing and core muscle groups. The exercises can challenge people at a very wide range of levels from the beginner to high level sporting athletes.
