How it Works
Find out exactly how Pilates works.
Physiolates is a well-developed service ran by highly qualified physiotherapists and sports therapists to bring 1:1Pilates sessions and Pilates group classes to you. Pilates is an excellent form of exercise designed to increase your core stability muscles. It is a combination of exercises which challenge the core muscles by using your body weight or small pieces of equipment.
How Pilates Works
Pilates works by activating the muscles which lie deep around the spine, pelvis and hips which are often weak. Exercising the deep core muscles allows them to become stronger, resulting in greater trunk and pelvis stability. Pilates aims to develop a strong central core to the body to give greater support to joints, improve posture and increase power production for the whole body, leading to many benefits for all.
Pilates combines 5 key elements in its exercises:
- Core activation
- Head placement
- Ribcage placement
- Shoulder blade placement
Your therapist will teach you how to incorporate these elements into each exercise.
You will become familiar with how Pilates works in just a couple of sessions. Exercises are progressed the stronger you get. You can expect to see results from 8 sessions of Pilates, or sooner if you practice the Pilates techniques at home between sessions.
