PILATES

Introduction to Pilates

 

Pilates is a far cry from the “modern fitness craze” many people think it is – Pilates has been developed and practiced since the early 1920’s when Joseph and Clara Pilates opened their “Body Conditioning Gym”.

 

Joseph Pilates was born in 1883, Germany.  He invented a physical fitness system, aided with machines/apparatus, that would improve techniques and help people recover from injuries. His unique method saw many famous dancers and actors attend his studios. Joseph Pilates believed that mental and physical health were interrelated, which is why his technique has been so successful in helping people return to their optimum health. These days over 12 million people practice Pilates, and the numbers continue to grow due to its adaptability and proven effectiveness.

 

Pakenham Osteopathy is pleased to offer Pilates classes to the locals of Pakenham, Officer, Beaconsfield, Berwick and Bunyip. You’ll find our timetable and a link to secure your spot at the bottom of the page.

What to expect

 

Pilates at Pakenham Osteopathy is a unique form of exercise that differs greatly from your typical gym type Pilates. Our classes hold a maximum of 4 people, to ensure each person receives the attention he/she needs and deserves.

 

Our Pilates classes may help you improve flexibility, posture and strength, and are suitable for people of all ages and abilities.

 

Prior to attending your first Pilates class at Pakenham Osteopathy, you will need to attend a one-on-one introductory session. This gives your instructor time to identify any injuries, areas of strength/weakness, your flexibility and your long-term goals. Your instructor will also use this time to introduce you to and allow you to become familiar with equipment and breathing techniques.
