Nicola joined the classes last year in the beginners classes wanting to develop more stability around her hips and pelvis and to strengthen her legs, particularly her ankles which she felt were weak. Physiotherapy had helped but Nicola wanted to find a weekly class to help herself.
Francesca came to the classes having seen various healthcare professionals in relation to pain in her back and her knees, while the treatments were helpful, progress stalled after a while. Francesca wanted to start something to help herself where she could strengthen her core muscles (internal stability muscles), her back and knees in a weekly class.
Derek came to the classes with a frozen shoulder that had been improving but again had stalled in treatments. He had very poor back mobility generally in extension, flexion, side flexion and rotation. The beginners classes were a must to take things slowly and build up as I didnʼt want Derek to suffer any strains or sprains through the classes and have any setbacks.
Pilates is good for you! Using your own body weight or the option of light weights, it is a strength training workout, with the use of bands in class we do some resistance training too. Pilates is a great workout for your body whether you are at the beginners class or intermediate level. Look forward to seeing you soon.
