Modern Pilates is a physiotherapist approved approach to
Pilates that will condition and tone your body.
Using a series of gentle and controlled movements you will work your muscles
from the inside out. This helps to create a flatter tummy, tone up your body, improve your posture
and align your spine. All this happens whilst relaxing your mind and reducing any stress
levels. This series of exercises is designed to progressively work your muscles week to
You may notice that there are many different types of Pilates around, all of
which build on the work of Joseph Pilates who designed a series of exercises to condition the body
and mind. He originally worked with dancers but in more recent times these methods have been
widely applied in the health and fitness industry.
Not all types of Pilates are the same. Modern Pilates is
only taught by physiotherapists and advanced exercise professionals to suitably qualified and
experienced exercise professionals. A Modern Pilates teacher will have passed
extensive theoretical examination, case study and practical assessment, as well as many hours
of observed teaching.
As a Modern Pilates student, you can expect to fill in
a health questionnaire the first time you visit a new teacher so they can assess your health and
learn about any special requirements you may have. You can also expect relatively small class sizes
with a significant level of individual attention. Classes will flow from week to week in a series
that is designed to work your muscles in a progressive manner.
Modern Pilates is suitable for all ages and ability levels.
If you are recovering from an injury or operation or just want to increase your flexibility and
