What is Pilates?

Pilates is an exercise method dedicated to improving physical and mental health. It teaches good posture and improves flexibility and agility.

It can help alleviate back pain. The aim of the exercises is to strengthen core muscles therefore improving stability, balance and body awareness. Pilates is fluid and low impact exercise, which increases sleekness and flexibility, rather than adding muscle bulk.

About our Pilates Classes

Pilates instructors at Chipping Norton Physio are all fully trained by the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) and have many years experience in healthcare.

This means we use our knowledge and experience of physiotherapy when teaching the principles of pilates to ensure you exercise safely and effectively.

The group classes are kept small to ensure we can keep an eye on everyone in the session and correct posture and alignment to help to gain maximum benefit from the class.

The classes we run are mainly mat work classes with the occasional use of small equipment such as resistance bands or prickly balls. Most of our classes are designed to be suitable for all ages and abilities – the only prerequisite is that you can get on and off the floor!

We also offer advanced classes and these are only suitable for those that have attended pilates previously and worked to at least an intermediate level.

For new clients, an introductory session is a pre-requisite before being able to join the advanced sessions.

YouTube Pilates

During the pandemic we started a YouTube channel to keep our clients active during lockdown. It was a huge success and has remained popular. We continue to produce weekly videos, which we email to our YouTube Members.

Our fees for our YouTube Pilates is just £20 per month.

If you would like to do Pilates at home at a time to suit you with a variety of instructors, please send an email to physio@chippingnortonphysio.com and we can set you up as a member.
