Pilates

Pilates is a full-body exercise system that emphasizes core stability, body alignment and awareness. Clients perform strength, flexibility and range of motion exercises on specially designed equipment.

Clinical Pilates is the same system implemented by a qualified physiotherapist to specifically rehabilitate an injury or prevent aggravation of an existing injury.

At Cranbourne Physiotherapy, we are aptly able to cater for all people with or without injury who wish to improve their dynamic health with Clinical Pilates.

Is Pilates for me?

Pilates may be performed by people of any age or fitness level.  In the past, only high-level athletes and dancers were trained in Pilates but now the exercise regime enjoys enormous popularity with the general population who want to be fitter, stronger, better.

How do I start?

Book Clinical Pilates sessions with our Clinical Pilates physiotherapist to develop your individual Pilates workout in our gymnasium.  If you have an injury, your physiotherapist can assess and treat the condition incorporating Pilates as a treatment tool.

Once you and your physiotherapist are comfortable with you performing your Clinical Pilates Program on your own, you may independently use our Pilates and gymnasium facilities on a sessional basis.
