REHABILITATION/PERSONAL TRAINING

If you have a specific condition, you may consider private pilates classes in which exercises can help correct muscular imbalances caused by injury, medical conditions or unexplained aches and pains. The great attention to precision movement and correct alignment is a perfect way for a client to gain strength in the weaker or injured muscles and joints. Pilates is extremely gentle on the joints, so there is little worry of over stressing an already stressed body. 

Pilates encourages correct breathing techniques to help relieve stress and tension which may have built up in a body which has been suffering from pain or disability.
