Pilates


Pilates benefits everyone! It’s an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise which we believe is available to anyone, at any age. Whether it be as part of injury rehab, a body that needs toning, pre and post pregnancy, overall improvement in wellness, enhancing athletic performance, or maintaining strength and stability as we age, Pilates does it all.

If you are looking primarily to improve muscle tone and flexibility and to maintain overall strength, we would recommend you work with our Contemporary Pilates practitioner, Luisa. With Contemporary Pilates no longer being available through Private Health Cover, Physiologix is delighted to be able to offer more affordable small group Pilates classes run by Luisa. Luisa is specifically trained in Pilates. Your program will provide a holistic approach that works towards improving overall body awareness, better posture and function, improved strength and flexibility and improved mindset.

In a small group session your Luisa will guide and progress you and up to 2 others through individualised programmes over a 60 minute period. This environment is ideal for people who need or prefer an individualised programme but have familiarity with the equipment and good movement technique.

If you are seeking rehabilitation from pain or injury, we recommend you initially book an assessment with one of our Physiotherapists, who all have an advanced understanding of injury and rehabilitation requirements. As part of your rehabilitation, your physiotherapist may provide some individual or physio supervised class exercise therapy until you are ready to progress into Contemporary Pilates. These sessions taught by a physiotherapist will provide an excellent first step towards the recovery of strength and function.

Classes are initially available on a Tuesday morning:

6.30am to 7.30am for all you early buffs!

7.30am to 8.30am

8.30am to 9.30am

After a Pilates session you will feel stronger, taller, flexible, balanced, and more aware of your body. Joseph Pilates said that his method of exercise "develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit."
