Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between clinical Pilates and Pilates at a fitness facility?

A clinical pilates program involves individually tailored exercises which are based on a thorough assessment of your mobility, strength and movement patterns. This ensures they are safe, appropriate for your level of fitness and beneficial in helping you meet your performance and rehabilitation goals. As corrections are often quite subtle, close supervision is needed to perform an effective program.
