Clinical Pilates at Flow

Pilates with Flow is unique as it is taught by a Chartered Physiotherapist; so you can feel confident that any injuries/health conditions will be assessed by an expert and taken into account during your Pilates sessions. Flow teaches using the APPI (Australian Physio & Pilates Institute), designed for Physiotherapists teaching Pilates.

So often we hear about how you can’t do certain exercises because of injury, whereas at Flow we like to work out a way in which the exercise can be modified so that anyone can enjoy the benefits Pilates.

Our aim is to provide an environment where everyone involved is able to gain the optimum benefit from participation. In order to enable all those who participate in Pilates classes to feel confident in their own ability and progress, it is important to ensure that each individual is aware of the basic principles of Pilates and how to relate these to their body and participate safely.

Therefore, we offer an Initial Assessment with us. This will enable you to discuss any health conditions you may have, any sports you may wish to be training for or ways in which we could adapt the exercises to suit you.

 

Initial Assessment

At Flow we recommend everyone participating in Pilates to come along to an initial one-to-one assessment.
This is an opportunity for you to learn the key elements of Pilates practice and integrate them into Pilates practice including some of the main postures we use.  By carrying out the one-to-one, you can then feel confident when joining the class that you understand more about your body and the different ways in which you can move and control it and equally Flow will be aware of what your aims are and ensure that you are well supported and safe during your Pilates practice.

Pilates Classes

Classes are run at our Flow Studio in Torquay (see here for directions).  Our group sessions are popular and we put this down to the environment that is created by those who attend and the fact we know everyone in our classes and make sure the classes are tailored to suit those in each class.

 

How Our Classes Work:

  • Dedicated studio with a range of equipment
  • Free taster session
  • Initial one to one assessment
  • Limited numbers
  • 24 hour cancellation policy for changing/missing a class
  • Ability to go to different classes

 

If you want to give one of our classes a go, we always offer a free taster. It is important to us that you feel Pilates is something you can see yourself doing, so we want you to get a taste of what to expect. From there we ask you to come to an initial one to one appointment. The aim of this is to get to know you better, find out what has brought you to Pilates and teach you the Key Elements of Pilates as well as some of the basic postures we use.
 

One-to-One Clinical Pilates

Once you have completed your initial session you can continue to practice one-to-one. This offers the opportunity for a Pilates session focussed on you, enabling the programme to be completely tailored to your own pace and requirements with a real focus on working on areas of difficulty or where you want to progress.
