What is Clinical Pilates?

THE HISTORY OF PILATES

Pilates was created by Joseph Hubertus Pilates in the early 1900's. 

As a young man, he  devised a unique series of vigorous physical exercises to help correct muscular imbalances and improve posture, coordination, balance, strength, and flexibility.  Much of his exercises were performed on spring-resistance machines.

Throughout his life, Joseph Pilates continued to develop his exercise systems and to create new pieces of equipment.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGULAR PILATES & CLINICAL PILATES

As Pilates, and Clinical Pilates, in particular, requires close instruction and feedback, learning pilates in large class numbers is not advisable or optimal.

Sessions at Function & Form, for this reason, are either conducted one on one or partner sessions. In this way, you are ensured you will be able to effectively execute each movement with the appropriate muscles.

THE PILATES REFORMER

The Pilates reformer is a traditional piece of Pilates equipment which looks like a bed with springs. It is the one of most versatile and effective piece of exercise equipment.

The Reformer allows exercise in a horizontal plane of motion without vertically loading and weight-bearing through the legs, whilst using a lighter resistance than their body weight. Therefore  assists accelerating the recovery process through controlled progressive resistance.

At Function and Form we use the Reformer for Injury Rehabilitation and Sports Specific Cross Training.
