“Breathing is the first act of life and the last. Our very life depends on it.” “Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.”
~ Joseph Pilates
Pilates is more than improving your flexibility, building strength and developing endurance in the entire body. It is the about coordination, balance, body alignment, controlling movement and most importantly breathing. It enhances your mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Who can benefit from it?
Pilates originally began as a dance or gymnast based program, which was mainly based on ballet type movements. The traditional Pilates exercises were then broken down into clearly defined levels to ensure a standard, gradual progression towards normal functional movement. It is now suitable for a wide range of people and conditions. Whether you are young or old, recovering from injury, a first time exerciser, or an elite athlete.
Haven’t seen us for physio yet? Why not book a ONE-ON-ONE consultation where our physiotherapist will assess your fitness level and tailor your exercise plan. Based on the assessment, you can then attend our group classes (private health rebates available!)
What can you expect at your class?
At YOUnique Health and Wellbeing, we help guide you to obtain your goal. Our classes are matwork based classes, which consists of strength, stretching and mobility exercises completed on an exercise mat. The main theme of matwork exercises is maintaining a central core of stability. By concentrating on precision of movement, awareness of breath control and a continued flowing movement, you will be able to alter abnormal patterns of movement and achieve a carry over effect into daily function.
All classes are run and developed by our experienced physiotherapists to ensure the best possible outcome for the you. Our physiotherapists select the most beneficial exercises to improve your posture and will advise you on helpful strategies you can do at work and at home for the best results!
