Pilates

Pilates is a a form of exercise that draws focus on activating deep muscle layers in combination with movement to strengthen muscle and joints, whilst improving movement, decreasing pain and increasing functioning.

At Drysdale Osteopathy we conduct floor mat pilates classes with a maximum of 8 people per class. This allows us to closely monitor participants and ensure correct activation and technique is followed. Classes are tailored to the groups needs to ensure maximum benefits for everyone in the group.

Classes are conducted with our rehab room within the clinic. Participants do not have to be a patient of the clinic to participate in classes. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate.

Classes run for 45 minutes.

The pilates instructors at Drysdale Osteopathy are focussed on participants getting the most out of their classes. We ensure this happens by monitoring movements and activities within the class, and encouraging participants to provide feedback about their progress through out class. Classes are held in a relaxed environment that encourages participants to move with their own limits whilst providing challenging exercises for our deep muscles including abdominals, lower back muscles, postural muscles, pelvic floor and their related joints.
