Pilates is an exercise approach developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. Joseph Pilates called his method ‘Contrology’. Pilates aims at improving the core strength, posture, flexibility, strength, endurance and body awareness. Pilates focuses on 7 key principles which are breathing, control, precision, routine, concentration, centring and flow.
Clinical Pilates tailors the experience to each individual. Exercises have been modified from Joseph Pilates original matwork exercises so as to suit people recovering from injury, post surgery or returning to fitness. As a Senior Physiotherapist with over 16 years experience Jo is able to use her skills to ensure the exercises are performed correctly and safely and to modify them if necessary.
