Exercise your core strength with our Mat Pilates Classes

Gain strength, improve balanced and increases your flexibility with our Pilates classes in Adelaide

Group Mat Class

These 40 minute group exercise mat classes are based on Pilates principles and are suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. In each class, there will be a trained and experienced physiotherapist leading a class with a maximum of 4 people. Pilates involves exercises that combine the coordination of deep postural stabilising muscles with breathing and upper/lower limb movements. This will result in:

  • Postural correction
  • Efficient movement patterns
  • Increase in overall muscle strength/tone
  • Improved flexibility and mobility
  • Reduction in pain and stiffness
  • Improvements in overall physical function
  • Improved wellbeing

1:1 Mat Session

We also provide 30 or 40 minute 1:1 mat sessions for those who want close supervision with a trained physiotherapist. We would recommend a 1:1 mat session for the following individuals:

  • Minimal or no prior experience with Pilates exercises
  • Recovering from a recent injury
  • Requiring hands on feedback and supervision due to multiple injuries
  • Wanting to increase confidence before attending a group class setting

Introductory Physiotherapy Session

A 30-40 minute introductory physiotherapy consultation is recommended before starting our group exercise mat classes. This will include an assessment to screen any injuries or poor movement patterns so that the physiotherapist can be aware of your history, goals and which specific body areas might need treatment or closer supervision. During the assessment, the physiotherapist may assess:

  • Posture
  • Balance/coordination
  • Joint range of motion/mobility
  • Muscle strength/flexibility
  • Functional activities (e.g. calf raises, squats, lunges)

After the assessment is complete and you have discussed the goals you would like to focus on, your physiotherapist will explain the five basic principles of Pilates and how you can apply these to your exercises.

Engaging your core is an important component of Pilates and if needed, your physiotherapist will use a Real Time Ultrasound machine to assess the muscle strength and endurance of your core muscles (i.e. pelvic floor and transverses abdominal muscles).

Mat classes are available at Torrensville, Lightsview, Woodville South, Kilkenny and Holden Hill.
