Physiotherapy led Pilates Classes

Family life is hard especially when you need to access extra services for your child.  I wanted to provide something for parents, grandparents, and care givers to help them take care of themselves, as well as getting the benefits of low impact exercise. 

WHY PHYSIO LED PILATES?

Physiotherapists have an excellent knowledge of the human body particularly the musculoskeletal system.  They are also experts in movement and posture.  Physio led pilates are exercises designed for people who suffer from back pain, neck pain, postural problems and more.  When you attend physio led pilates you don't need to be concerned about certain exercises making your back pain worse as your instructor will be able to modify exercises suited to your needs. 

BENEFITS OF PILATES

  • Improved mobility 

  • Improved stability 

  • Strengthens your central stability system (also known as core stability)

  • Increased postural awareness

  • Helps with the management of back pain and neck pain

  • Aids with the management of pelvic floor dysfunction 

  • Stress relief

    All classes are held in the Green Road Community Center. The address is 30 Breezemount Grove, Conlig, Bangor, BT23 7TX There is parking available at the community center.
  • Do I need to bring my own mat?
    All mats, head cushions and equipment is provided. If you would prefer to use your own mat you are more than welcome to bring it and place it on top of the mats provided.
  • What should I wear?
    Please wear clothing which you can move well in such as tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a loose t-shirt. The community center is lovely and warm so there is no need to worry about too many layers.
  • I have back pain and some other health problems, is it safe for me to do Pilates?
    You will fill out an online registration form before starting which will give you a chance to explain any back pain or other health problems you may have which might limit what you can or cannot do. Your class teacher will then be aware and be able to adjust any exercises which may not be suitable for you.
  • How big are the classes?
    The class will have a maximum of 12 participants. Small classes mean the instructor can come around and make sure you are doing the exercises correctly so you get the maximum benefit from them.
  • How much do classes cost?
    The one hour classes cost £9 per class usually payable in a block of 5 or 6 weeks. The 45 minute classes cost £7 per class again payable in a block.
  • How do I pay?
    You can book your place online and pay by credit card, apple pay or google pay.
  • Is there a pay as you go option?
    You will get the most benefit from Pilates when the exercises are done consistently, so there is no pay as you go option and classes are booked in blocks.

Change happens through movement
and movement heals.
