The Physio for Women Pilates classes are a fusion of traditional Pilates and specialist Women’s health physiotherapy exercises and movement sequences for all your Women’s Health needs. There is an additional focus on rehabilitating the pelvic floor muscles in their entirety and with the surrounding connecting lumbo-pelvic musculature. These classes are designed by Women for Women to nurture and support you throughout your life’s journey.
“10 sessions you’ll feel a difference, 20 sessions you will see a difference, 30 sessions and you will have a whole new body” Joseph Pilates
Why choose a Physio for Women Pilates Class…
Attending a Physio for Women Pilates class will ensure you exercise optimally and safely to gain maximum benefit with absolutely no risk or injury from poor techniques or inappropriate exercise prescriptions. We keep our classes nice and small so we can keep an eye on you, and you on us.
Women’s Health physiotherapists have extensive and often unrivalled knowledge about the female body including biomechanics, anatomy and function; and how this changes throughout a woman’s life. Our clinical experience of treating many Women, from all walks of life, really allows us to develop a thorough understanding for what really does work best for Women at certain stages of their life. For example which exercises are most beneficial and effective to support life events such as pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, menopause, ageing, osteoporosis, and post surgical recovery etc. Therefore Women’s Health Physios are ideally placed to deliver exercise classes to groups of Women as well as formulate individual exercise prescriptions. This is because we combine our medical knowledge with our knowledge about fitness and function…and further combine this with our extensive clinical experience of treating many Women with a variety of problems, as well as those who just want to be fit and healthy.
Frustratingly there is quite a disparity between classes taught by those in the fitness industry, and those taught by Health Care Professionals. Many women have some medically related problem whether this be back, neck or pelvic pain, or more specialist pelvic floor problems. The concerning reality is these women are being encouraged to unknowingly put themselves at risk by performing high level non-functional exercises. Ultimately they are doing more harm than good. We have treated countless Women who noticed their problems started after commencing some new exercise class or training programme under the guidance of an inadequately trained instructor. This was because they were performing exercises incorrectly or exercises that they should not have been doing. Not only not benefiting them but in fact predisposing them to injury and tissue damage. This is why we are passionate about looking out for you, looking after you and sharing our knowledge to help you look after yourself.
