What is Pilates?

Pilates “Is the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit”. Pilates uses a series of exercises to engage muscle function with mind function, to develop a strong, healthy, body and mind.
Pilates is founded on 6 fundamental principles of exercise:

  • Breathing
  • Centering
  • Concentration
  • Control
  • Flow
  • Precision

What are the Benefits of Pilates?

The benefits of Pilates are wide-ranging:

  • Regular Pilates can improve your health, fitness, posture, balance, muscle tone and joint mobility, which in turn can aid with motivation and alleviate depression.
  • Improve movement, speed, strength, control and power to aid in any sport or athletic ability.
  • Teaches core strength which can help to alleviate back pain.
  • Works with a regular breathing pattern which can aid in stress relief and help as a relaxation technique.
  • Aid with weight loss if practiced alongside aerobic activities and a healthy, well-balanced diet.
  • Muscle strengthening which can assist in maintaining a healthy weight.

Who is Pilates for?

Pilates is suitable for all ages, genders and all levels of ability and fitness. All exercises can be tailored to suit an individual's needs.

What to Expect During a Pilates Session?

For the initial session our Pilates instructor will complete a health questionnaire with you and talk about what you wish to gain from the session and possible subsequent sessions.

The first session will include teaching you how to set up your posture and core, warm up and mobilise your joints and spine, work on your balance, a short cardio work out with weights, and then move down to the mat for floor exercises.

Pilates mat training is a body-weight, total body conditioning program with a long list of core- centered exercises, sequenced together to elevate your mind, body, spirit and athletic ability.

The session will finish with stretching and a cool down.

For clients wishing to book further sessions our Pilates Instructor will develop a tailored program to suit your needs, which you will continue to work through at follow up sessions.

All necessary equipment for the session will be provided by Medineeds Health & Wellness Studio.

Alternative Pilates Sessions

Antenatal Sessions: Antenatal sessions will follow a similar set up as the session described. More detailed notes will be taken on the health questionnaire and regular monitoring of changes will be recorded. Adaptions will be made as the client progresses through the trimesters.

Postnatal Sessions:  Postnatal sessions will follow a similar set up as the session described. The session will start with a diastasis recti check and teach you to check this regularly. Adaptions to exercises will be made after the initial session, depending on the status of diastasis recti and time since the birth.
