REDUCE PAIN, INCREASE STRENGTH, FEEL INVINCIBLE
Pilates strengthens your body and mind. Sound good?! Professor Pilates offers 1:1 sessions with our expert clinical Pilates instructors
If you are joining a Pilates group class, come along to do a 1:1 Pilates session first to get the basics nailed down. It will also allow Professor Pilates to provide you with an individualised exercise programme suitable for you depending on your pain, sporting requirements and ability.
Pilates will improve your posture dramatically. You will become aware of your body and learning to engage the correct muscles. This is especially important if you have a desk-based or manual job, leading to postural imbalances. Sustaining a good posture eases tension, reduces fatigue, reduces pain and prevents injuries.
Pilates increases flexibility, meaning you may be able to touch your toes finally! Increasing the length of your muscles facilitates a greater range of movement within the joints, reducing stiffness pain and allowing you to feel free and invincible!
Pilates offers many psychological benefits, including relaxation and mindfulness, which is crucial in the busy world we live in today. Pilates reduces stress levels and anxiety by releasing hormones like endorphins and serotonin (the happy hormones!)
You are improving your balance. Unfortunately, getting older or sustaining an injury may result in balance becoming a little more challenging, potentially increasing the risk of falls. Strengthening the correct muscles will help maintain healthy, strong bones and muscles to keep you active and safe.
WHY ARE OUR PILATES 1:1 SESSIONS UNIQUE?
Professor Pilates welcomes all levels, from complete beginners to experts. Exercise programmes are tailored to meet your needs, focusing on all muscle groups. All sessions are happy, fun and upbeat, leaving you stretched, strengthened and full of energy.
Suppose you're new to Pilates or haven't exercised in a while. In that case, these sessions allow you to work at your own pace and level to become familiar with the Pilates equipment and comfortable with the exercises and techniques.
Suppose you're an experienced Pilates practitioner or are already attending classes. In that case, the one-to-one attention makes these sessions ideal for working on specific exercises, refining your form and technique or simply benefitting from the undivided attention to progress further, faster.
If you're recovering from injury or illness or struggling with a persistent niggle, Pilates is highly effective for muscular and musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
WHO SHOULD DO PILATES?
Who should do Pilates?
The most common condition people associate with Pilates is low back pain. Still, Pilates can also be an appropriate exercise for those experiencing neck/shoulder pain, knee problems and during / post-pregnancy.
Pilates is also very beneficial as part of a training plan in preparation for a sporting event such as a marathon or triathlon, or generally to improve sporting performance. Pilates is also great for toning up muscles and improving body confidence!
