What will I gain from Modern Pilates?
Modern Pilates is a method of exercise that will condition and tone the body. Its methods are very different from many traditional types of exercise.
The aim is to work muscles from the inside out, creating a stronger flatter mid section, improved posture, muscle balance, realigning the spine and improving both the function and appearance of the body.
Modern Pilates is a relaxing and individual programme which works both the body & mind. Modern Pilates is also aimed at relieving stress and can help improve sleep patterns and tension, specifically in the neck and shoulders.
Why Choose Modern Pilates?
Modern Pilates is a training programme that is taught by physiotherapist and advanced exercise teachers. Modern Pilates training programmes are only offered to physiotherapist, sports therapist and experienced and qualified exercise teachers and personal trainers.
Modern Pilates teachers have to pass extensive theory exams present case studies and plan both progressive and remedial programmes. The final assessment is based around hours of observed teaching and a final practical assessment.
It is worth noting that there are many types of Pilates classes around, some Pilates based classes are run by teachers who have only taken a couple of days training. Whilst these classes may be taught by excellent teachers they are not ideal if you have more specialist needs, recovering from injury or want a more personal session.
Modern Pilates delivers small group personal training. Clients are screened and given individual advice and attention throughout the class.
