Clinical and Studio Pilates
Whether you’re looking for rehab, fitness, strength or stress release, our Pilates programs offer it all.
We offer Clinical Pilates and Studio Pilates. Our programs draw on exercises based on the Pilates method, as well as current research. It means our way of teaching and programming is constantly evolving and improving for your benefit.
So which one is right for you?
Clinical Pilates focuses solely on you and your needs. Its main aim is to aid in injury management and rehabilitation. Clinical Pilates may assist in treating and preventing musculoskeletal injuries including pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees and more. Our qualified Osteopaths who are trained in Clinical Pilates will assess your pain/injury and movement patterns; determine your requirements; and create a program using specific, individualized and targeted exercises to suit you. You will start with a 1:1 session and may then move to our semiprivate 1:3 sessions.
Clinical Pilates is different from studio or fitness pilates as it is conducted by an osteopath trained in clinical pilates and is highly specific to your requirements. Our instructors aim to determine your key issues and design a program specific to your needs, which allow for optimal results and reduced risk of injury. It may be used to manage back pain including disc injuries; neck and shoulder pain and headaches; chronic pain including recurring injuries; postural complaints; balance and coordination issues including falls prevention; hip, knee and ankle pain; and shoulder and elbow pain.
Prior to attending any of our clinical pilates programs it is necessary that you attend two 1:1 assessments. At the first assessment one of our qualified instructors will obtain your detailed case history. We will then ask you to perform a series of tests and functional movements, which will allow us to tailor a clinical pilates program specific to your needs and goals. At the second solo session your instructor will demonstrate and guide you through your tailored program and show you how to use the equipment.
1:1 clinical pilates sessions
For those who prefer the convenience of a solo-session, Spring Osteo offers 1:1 clinical pilates programs. These run for approximately 50 minutes and are conducted by one of our qualified clinical pilates instructors.
1:3 clinical pilates sessions
Spring Osteo also offers the convenience of small group clinical pilates. These sessions run for 50-60 minutes and are conducted by a qualified osteopath and clinical pilates instructor. During the 1:3 sessions each participant will be performing their specific program tailored to their needs. To ensure that all participants receive adequate supervision and guidance we limit the size of the class to three participants only.
We have 25 semi-private small group sessions running from Monday to Saturday. Please click here for the timetable. If none of these times work for you, please let us know as we will be adding classes to the schedule and will try to accommodate requests. Solo (1:1) sessions can be booked at any time your instructor is available.
Studio Pilates focuses on healthy bodies. It’s a fun, diverse, small group class utilizing our small studio and favourite equipment. Studio Pilates aims to provide fitness, flexibility, muscle strength and tone and postural alignment. Each week, our Studio Pilates instructor designs a 45-min full body Pilates work-out to music. You will use the reformer, trapformer, wunder chair, mat and props. At each station you will work a different part of your body. We can adjust the exercise to your level making it a great class for beginners to intermediates. Unlike our Clinical Pilates program, this doesn’t focus on rehabilitation and you can not claim these classes on your private health.
You don’t need to complete an assessment to join one of our Studio Pilates classes. You will need to fill out a medical history form so we request you arrive ten minutes early for your first class. If you have never tried Pilates we suggest doing a 1:1 introduction to Pilates session first to familiarise yourself with the machine and basic Pilates concepts.
