Pilates Classes in Kingston
Are you looking for suitable Pilates Classes in Kingston? Many physiotherapists run Pilates Classes for rehabilitation of injuries as well as improving clients posture, maintaining mobility and flexibility. Much of the current research into injury prevention and management advocates movement and exercise as part of the management.
Pilates is a good way to maintain good movement patterns, build strength and flexibility. It is important that your instructor works closely with you to make sure that you are performing the exercises correctly.
Clinical Pilates is taught specifically to physiotherapists who have an expert knowledge of the body and injury mechanisms and they use Pilates as part of the rehabilitation model. Either we give individual programmes during your treatment sessions or advise that you may benefit from joining a class. Instructors are trained by APPI and are certified instructors.
Benefits of class environment
At JYphysiotherapy we run a number of different Pilates classes. We have 3 evening classes based at: The Canbury studio, 120 Canbury Park Avenue, KT2 6JZ, 5 minutes from Kingston town centre, the bus and train station.
Pilates Classes are mixed and hold up to 12 people. They are suitable for different levels of fitness so please give us a call if you are not sure what will suit your needs.
We also run a morning Pilates Class at: Riverside Tennis Club, Cambry Gardens, Lower Ham Road, Kingston Upon Thames, KT2 5AJ and have a number of small groups running out of client’s homes.
Classes are great to help you maintain commitment to exercise. Often the core and flexibility aspects of your routine tend to get dropped with time and so Pilates is a good way to maintain these and classes offer support for you to do so. Exercising in groups can be more social and FUN! So come along and have a try.
As physiotherapists we work on good technique so you can make the most of the exercises.
Benefits of Pilates include improved posture and core stability, increased flexibility, prevention of injuries, restoration of normal movement patterns, increased co-ordination and muscular control and firmer, flatter stomach muscles. Improved overall body tone and improved balance.
All physiotherapists are APPI trained.
We currently run several classes in the Kingston area;
Canbury Business Park,
Unit 6, Canbury Works,
Please note that a FREE 20 minute assessment is necessary before each class.
