PILATES

pilates-icon.png

Pilates has something to offer people of all ages and levels of fitness. Pilates can improve posture, muscle tone, balance, joint mobility, back and joint pain, as well as relieve stress and tension.

Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise where exercises are performed in a flow of movement.
 

Physiotherapy–led Pilates has the advantage of thorough movement analysis, and a tailored, evidence-based, goal-specific exercise selection, taking into account function, pain and injury.

APPI METHOD

In 2004, I undertook the complete Pilates mat-work training programme with the APPI – Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute – to qualify as a certified Pilates instructor. The APPI method is built on a degree-level understanding of movement, anatomy, and physiology.

 

In 2005, I was welcomed by the APPI as a trainer and consultant working both in the UK and internationally training other Physiotherapists to use the APPI Pilates method. Since then, Pilates exercises, rehab treatment and analysis of movement and posture have been significant tools that have helped my clients regain beautiful, flowing, comfortable movement.
 

I teach Pilates classes at all levels, including Pilates for Golfers, Ante and
post-natal Pilates, and a tailored class for people with Osteoporosis.


When a class setting is not the clinically suitable, or if people desire a more personal approach, 1 to 1, or 1 to 2 sessions are available. These sesions are extremely valuable in mastering the techniques of Pilates and get you started on working towards your specific goals.


If you are unsure how Pilates can help you – please call me and I’ll happily discuss your personal circumstances and see if this treatment is right for you.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

"I've been one of Deb's Pilates students for years, after being recommended to her by my osteopath. 

She is endlessly cheerful and seems to know what her student's bodies are capable of better than they do themselves, which enables her to tailor exercises to allow for any specific problem you may have."
