Clinical Pilates is a type of exercise that focuses on movement patterns that allow for improved body awareness, abdominal control and correct breathing. The focus is on each part of the body and how it connects as a whole and is facilitated by equipment such as reformers, mats and Pilates chairs.
A physiotherapist is who runs these sessions, and the aim is to guide your technique to prevent injury and develop exercises to suit your specific needs. If you’re interested in joining a class Propel Physio offers expert-led Clinical Pilates classes as well as Pre and Postnatal Pilates
