Clinical Pilates at RehabLab Studio
What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates is a form of exercise that was developed during, and refined post, world war one by Joseph Pilates. He coined his new found exercise regime as ‘The Art of Contrology’. Initially it was performed as ballistic exercises over a large range of motion, this has since been refined to create a repertoire that is appropriate for the general population. But the principles by which it was developed still hold true.
Modern day Pilates has a particular focus on deep core endurance, strength and ultimately control. This control is then challenged by a range of movements/exercises completed against resistance or body weight. Our Clinical Pilates instructors pride themselves on providing specific individualised programs for our clients to ensure they get the best out of their classes whether that be for fitness or rehabilitation of an injury or chronic condition.

- Whole body strength and endurance

- Mental Health Status
- Body awareness, mindfulness and well-being
- Balance, posture and co-ordination
- Lumbo-pelvic stability and core control ‘Centreing’
Where do I start?
In the Pilates room we have equipment that needs to be used in a particular manner. It is therefore important that before you join any classes you book in a one on one introductory session with either Peta or Adelaide to ensure you are ready to start your pilates journey.
