Pilates provides an all over conditioning routine that builds strong, toned muscles without added bulk. It also works to reduce stress, as well as muscle tension brought on by unbalanced posture and everyday aches and pains.
Southside Clinic offers Pilates class options through our sister business The Barre Clinic. You can join us for Mat Pilates and Circuit Pilates classes on the studio equipment. Please read on for more information about our different class options, and to view the timetable please click here.
Mat Pilates is a collection of exercises performed on a mat, promoting strength, flexibility, stabilisation, posture and breathing. Using small props, the mat workout is fun, dynamic, and will keep you working hard.
Pilates was originally developed by the late Joseph Pilates during WWI, where it was used to rehabilitate injured soldiers.
Mat Pilates has a strong focus on the core, providing fantastic support for your low back. The diverse exercises in these mat Pilates classes focus on precise movements, targeting key muscles, gaining control and bringing your body back into ideal alignment. It is a full body workout incorporating breathing, flexibility, strength, stabilisation and posture.
Classes are taught by our Certified Pilates Instructors.
Circuit Pilates is a dynamic class utilising all of the Pilates equipment – Reformer – Cadillac – Stability Chair – Spine Corrector – Bosu – and a huge variety of small apparatus. This is an intense full body workout giving you strength, flexibility, posture, power and control.
Clients rotate between the pieces of Pilates equipment in a circuit style. This class will expand your Pilates repertoire and challenge you in new ways.
