You may well have heard about the benefits of Pilates without really understanding what is involved. Pilates is used to improve your core strength (key in protecting the spine), and to remove imbalances within the body which may predispose you to injury.
At Body Rehab Studios Pilates is only taught by Physiotherapists who really understand each individual client’s body, and Pilates teachers specifically trained in injury rehabilitation to ensure a safe and effective programme. Pilates can be taught on a 1:1 basis on the equipment, in a matwork class or in small groups on the equipment.
As well as being the director of the clinic Dawn is also a Master Trainer for the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) training physios in the UK and internationally to become Pilates instructors. Therefore Body Rehab Studios is proud to offer highly bespoke and clinically informed programmes for our clients. We believe each client is unique and will need more than the traditional 'one size fits all' approach.
Critically the ability to engage the core is assessed using the Realtime Ultrasound Scanner which is only available in a limited number of clinics. Engaging the core system forms the foundation of all the exercises and unless taught correctly both the enjoyment and benefits of Pilates can be lost.
We have worked with clients with many different requirements, those awaiting spinal surgery, pre and post natal ladies and even those who have had joint replacements. At a higher level we have also worked with elite ballerinas, international athletes and the armed forces where Pilates has been focused to be both challenging and pin point specific to their needs.
