In recent years, Pilates has become recognised as one of the most effective ways to maintain a pain free life.
Our specilaist Clinical Pilates classes, are all led by graduate Physiotherapists and Sports & Rehabilitation Therapists, with specialist experience and education in managing injuries. The classes will help you learn how to move efficiently, giving you strength, control and physical durability. Enthusiastic exercisers, Mum’s to be, the elderly and anyone that values their body, can all benefit from Pilates. If you’re recovering from injury it’s an excellent form of rehabilitation, training your body to ‘move better’, preventing re-occurrences.
We offer a range of classes to suit all abilities. All of our courses are progressive and encourage you to develop at your own pace. Classes are run 6 days a week, including evenings and a Saturday morning, so it's easy to find a class that fits in with your diary.

What exactly is Pilates?
Pilates is a system of exercises designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. It was developed in the early 1900's by the German born, Joseph Pilates, who believed physical and mental strength were closely connected. Pilates can be done as part of a class or on a 1-2-1 basis. There are lots of classes to choose from - some are mat based and others may use specialist equipment.
Who is Pilates suitable for?
Almost everyone would benefit from taking part in Pilates. The exercises can be adapted for all ages and levels of fitness, whether you're recovering from an injury, pregnant, retired or an enthusiastic exerciser. If you tend to suffer with recurrent back or neck pain, taking part in regular Pilates can really help. In fact, it's a great way to ward off or help recovery form many injuries as it really focuses on muscle control, movement and developing strength and flexibility in the whole body.
How do I choose a Pilates class?
There are lot's of different types of Pilates and classes to choose from. If you're new to Pilates a good place to start is a mat based class. This is the bread and butter of Pilates and the basis on which all other Pilates is built. We progress our mat classes from beginner through to advanced at a pace that suits each individual.
If you've had an injury who better to teach you than a qualified Physiotherapist or Sports Therapist. We integrate all our knowledge and experience into the classes to make sure you progress at the right pace, are challenged appropriately and don't risk re-injuring yourself. It’s almost like having access to ongoing, group physio.
You may also want to consider how many people are in the class. The key to Pilates exercises is the quality of the movement. To gain benefit you have to do the exercises correctly. Smaller classes enable the instructor to give individual guidance. We've actually had people come to us after suffering an injury by doing Pilates incorrectly in a large class. At goPhysio, we never have more than 10 people in our classes.
