On your arrival, our instructor would like to get to know you a little better so please have a chat before the class to discuss any issues or goals you have.
Following your registration we ask you to inform the Instructor and keep them updated if you have a health problem or spine problem or any medical issue that we need to know about. This is so we can help keep you safe and also use expertise during your class.
During your class you will be instructed on the methods to engage your core correctly, and be taken through a sequence of exercises which will build strength, control and stability throughout the whole body.

APPI Pilates is a type of Pilates used by Physiotherapists. It is a form of Clinical Pilates modified to make the exercises safer for the general population and for those using Pilates in the rehabilitative setting, for example, those who are recovering from lower back pain. The exercises are graded so we ensure you are activiating the correct deep core muscle groups during the exercises. We build up the load and balance requirements of the Pilates exercises so you will become stronger, more stable and balanced. Postural muscles will become stronger during your Pilates practice and so the posture should improve along with your aches and pains. The exercises begin easy and build up to an advanced standard which is quite strenuous for those who enjoy the challenge.
