Pilates is a physical fitness system developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. His goal was to help injured athletes and dancers resume exercise and fitness training in a safe and controlled manner. Over the last 100 years, Pilates has become widely practiced around the world, including by people from the general community who have adapted the system to their more general needs.
Pilates mat classes can include aerobic and non-aerobic exercises. They involve moving your body through precise ranges of motion, which requires focus and concentration. Every muscle group in the body is stretched in a balanced fashion by finding a centre point from which to control your body through movement. Each exercise has a prescribed placement, rhythm and breathing pattern.
Each person has different strengths, limitations and requirements when it comes to exercise. The great thing about the Pilates method is that it can be tailored to each person. The exercises are evaluated and re-evaluated regularly to ensure they’re appropriate. Pilates can be useful for anyone from elite athletes who are highly trained to people with low fitness levels. Even pregnant women and people with limited mobility can participate in and benefit from our Pilates in Melbourne.
Pilates & physiotherapy matwork classes in Melbourne consist of a slow, sustained series of exercises using controlled breathing and abdominal control. A variety of exercise sequences are performed in low repetitions between five to ten times over a duration of 45 to 90 minutes. A mat and other specialised equipment is used for resistance. One of the many great things about Pilates is that the muscles are never worked to exhaustion and there is little to no sweating or straining. Mental concentration is paramount, but there are resources available to help you get the best results.
Although Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise, our Pilates reformer in Melbourne recommends that certain people seek medical advice before embarking on a new program, including:
