When is an assessment appropriate?
It is highly recommended you have a physiotherapy or osteopathy Assessment prior to joining our classes for the first time, even if you have experience in pilates groups in the past.
Practitioner led exercise pilates can differ to public and gym based group sessions. Clinical pilates focuses on optimal movement, breathing and control while moving through a sequence of exercises. Like any exercise your body will be challenged and it is important to have sufficient control and strength to avoid new strains and injuries.
An individual physiotherapy or osteopathy assessment can check your core stability, exercise form and movement control to get the best out of each group class.
We may also develop a complimentary exercise program to better prepare you for classes. If you have a particular injury you are managing, seeing a physiotherapist prior to joining the group can ensure we find the right exercise for you and allows us to better support you in the class environment. However you can commence classes without assessment by completing a medical waiver.
