Clinical Pilates

1:1 and Clinical Group Classes

Pilates has a multitude of benefits far beyond the physical. At Williamstown Health + Lifestyle, we aim to provide personalised clinical classes and studio programs which are the perfect entry point  to get your mind and body working together & moving optimally, improving & strengthening posture, increasing flexibility, with an emphasis on  proper breathing.

All new clients commence with an Initial Private 45 minute session. During this private we start to develop a program that is unique to your body and goals and address any injuries that you may have. Following your initial if your instructor deems it appropriate you can choose to join a group class with a maximum of 4 people per class, or continue with a private class.

Our Studio Pilates programs at Williamstown H+L concentrate on spinal stabilisation, a results-driven choice for those who have suffered previous injuries or who have particular wellness goals to work towards.

Some of our pilates instructors are osteopaths/physiotherapists/myotherapists so health insurance might also be claimable for private sessions.

The Benefits of Pilates

Improved flexibility

Increased muscular strength and tone

Improved movement patterns

Increased core stability

Balance and co ordintation

Injury rehabilitation

Improved posture

Clinical Pilates

Clinical pilates utilises the specialised Pilates equipment such as the trapeze table, reformer, wunda chair and barrel. Programs are designed specifically for the individual and therefore is a personalised program giving greater results to participants with a specific fitness or rehabilitation goal. Each piece of Pilates equipment can offer either a challenge or assistance encouraging more length and strength into the body with the different exercises.

Due to the nature of the small class numbers, (1:3 participants) we can work everyone at an appropriate level – from acute injuries to chronic pain sufferers to someone wanting to target postural or fitness goals.

Pilates & Gym Group Classes From November 2023

NB Classes will proceed subject to demand
