Customised exercises to match your unique requirements

When considering an exercise regimen, it is crucial to carefully consider your abilities and objectives, ensuring that they align with the potential offerings of the chosen activity. This consideration becomes especially significant in the context of rehabilitation and recovery, where tailored exercises can play a vital role.

Pilates has stood the test of time as a remarkable exercise method embraced worldwide. Its gentle yet impactful nature makes it suitable for individuals of all ages. With a focus on core strength, flexibility, and body awareness, Pilates offers a well-rounded approach that appeals to people at different stages of life. Whether you’re a beginner or seeking advanced challenges, Pilates can be adapted and modified to cater to various fitness levels and abilities.

Experience the benefits of our small group clinical Pilates classes at NDPE, where we incorporate reformer Pilates into our sessions. With the use of a Pilates reformer machine—a movable flat frame on wheels—reformer Pilates allows for targeted muscle strengthening. This aspect makes it an ideal option not only for individuals seeking to improve their core strength but also for athletes of all types, from graceful ballet dancers to dynamic football players.

What is Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise that aims to increase flexibility and strength and improve posture and overall health. Clinical Pilates is often used by people who are recovering from an injury or dealing with a chronic medical condition as it helps to stimulate muscles that have become weak or tight.

Our dedicated physiotherapists at NDPE who conduct our clinical Pilates classes prioritise the individual needs of each participant. By considering personal health, injuries, and overall well-being, they curate personalised workouts tailored to specific requirements. Following the principle of stabilisation, these programs encompass synchronised breathing techniques while engaging both the upper and lower extremities in a range of controlled movements. Clinical Pilates is a versatile exercise option suitable for individuals of all ages and fitness levels, including expectant mothers as it is deemed safe during pregnancy.

What Are the Conditions That Can Benefit From Clinical Pilates?

There are numerous conditions and circumstances in which Clinical Pilates may provide benefits, including:

What Is Reformer Pilates?

Reformer Pilates offers additional and unique benefits that may not be achievable in Pilates which is performed on a yoga mat. While mat work encourages you to use your body weight to provide resistance, reformer Pilates promotes proper form while adding resistance using adjustable springs. With this added assistance, you have access to a wider variety of exercises to build strength and improve mobility.

A reformer is a piece of equipment that lies flat and low to the ground and comes equipped with springs, straps, and adjustable bars. Your physiotherapist will guide you through movements using the machine, which allows you to exercise horizontally as opposed to vertically, reducing weight bearing on the legs.

Certain patients, such as those in their third trimester of pregnancy or individuals with spinal or neck problems, may not be suitable for reformer Pilates. It is recommended that patients consult with their doctor prior to initiating an exercise regime.

Elevate your Pilates experience with our reformer Pilates classes led by our knowledgeable physiotherapists. These classes combine the clinical aspects of Pilates with the utilisation of reformer machines to maximise the benefits. As our classes are conducted by qualified professionals, they may be eligible for health fund claims. Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your Pilates practice under the guidance of our experienced team.

In what ways can Reformer Pilates benefit individuals with certain conditions?

There are several conditions that Reformer Pilates may potentially assist with, including:

Which individuals can participate in Clinical and Reformer Pilates?

Regardless of age or lifestyle, people can reap significant benefits from all forms of Pilates. Older adults may experience improved balance, stability, and posture, thereby reducing the risk of falls and maintaining independence. Pilates also serves as a gentle, joint-friendly exercise choice for individuals with joint issues or injuries. For younger individuals, Pilates offers a well-rounded workout that focuses on strength and flexibility, aiming to enhance overall fitness and prevent common musculoskeletal imbalances.

Pilates is also an ideal exercise for people who have physical limitations and are looking for a supported and gentle activity that still offers results. A significant advantage of reformer Pilates, in particular, is that there is less stress put on the joints as the majority of the workout can be performed lying or sitting down.

Our team of qualified and experienced physiotherapists will work closely with you to create a personalised program that considers your abilities, requirements, and goals. They will provide guidance and support throughout each exercise and make necessary adjustments as needed.

In what ways do Physiotherapy and Exercise Pilates vary from each other?

Clinical Pilates and exercise Pilates differ in their core objectives and practical applications. Clinical Pilates is a specialised type of Pilates supervised by qualified practitioners, like our physiotherapists. It is often recommended as part of a rehabilitation plan to target specific injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, or postural issues. Clinical Pilates prioritises individualised assessments, targeted exercises, and customised modifications to cater to the distinct needs and limitations of each individual.

In contrast, exercise Pilates, also known as traditional or mat Pilates, takes a more broad approach and is commonly available in fitness studios or group classes. It focuses on enhancing overall strength, flexibility, and body conditioning through a series of exercises that often involve a mat or equipment like resistance bands. Exercise Pilates aims to improve physical fitness, core strength, posture, and overall body awareness without specifically addressing individual injuries or medical conditions.

While clinical Pilates and exercise Pilates have foundational principles and movements in common, clinical Pilates takes a more individualised and therapeutic approach. It is tailored to address specific health concerns and conditions, providing targeted exercises and modifications. On the other hand, exercise Pilates has a broader focus on overall fitness and well-being, offering a general approach to improving strength, flexibility, and body conditioning.

Is there a maximum limit to the number of individuals in a Reformer Pilates class?

At NDPE, we offer reformer exercise classes in small groups, allowing us to provide an individualised approach to each participant. This approach ensures that correct technique is emphasised and participants can make the most out of their time in class. To maintain a high standard of instruction, we limit class sizes to a maximum of 4 individuals and have qualified physiotherapists leading the sessions.

Can practising Reformer Pilates aid with achieving weight loss goals?

Weight loss is not the core goal of reformer Pilates, although any form of exercise may assist with weight loss. Reformer Pilates is typically used for rehabilitation, strength, and health reasons to reduce pain or enhance mobility and flexibility. At NDPE, we focus on these aspects as a measure of success, rather than centimetres and kilograms.

Is reformer Pilates hard?

Your workouts will be customised to suit your needs and abilities, ensuring a challenging yet achievable routine. As you progress, your strength and stamina will likely improve, allowing you to tackle exercises that were once out of reach.

Can Reformer Pilates exercises be done without the need for a studio or specific equipment?

In order to engage in reformer Pilates at home, it’s important to have access to a reformer machine. Reformer Pilates exercises are specifically designed to be performed using this specific equipment. If you’re interested in practising reformer Pilates in the comfort of your own home, you would need to invest in a reformer machine. It’s worth noting that commercial-quality reformer machines, which offer durability and stability, are usually more expensive.

How long does it take to see results from Reformer Pilates?

Each person’s body and experiences are unique, and as such there is no specific timeframe for expected results. We will discuss your goals with you and provide regular updates about your progress.

Can the expenses for NDPE Pilates sessions be covered by health insurance?

If you have adequate coverage, you can claim your classes with your health fund because they are delivered by physiotherapists.
