Clinical Pilates is a unique form of exercise and is very different to your gym type Pilates.
Pilates at SHG is a unique form of exercise and is very different to your gym type Pilates. Our instructors will tailor a specific program for your individual needs and teach you to use the exact muscles for functional movements and optimal posture. Pilates reconditions the body to increase strength, flexibility, mobility, balance and body awareness. It helps to prevent the re-occurance of, and treat, a range of musculoskeletal conditions.
MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS
At SHG our practitioners tailor a Pilates program specific to your individual needs, taking into consideration your fitness level and any pre-existing injuries. Our instructors will liaise with your Osteopath, Podiatrist or Health Care Practitioner to ensure you won’t aggravate your injury and to get the best results from your Pilates class.
As a result, you can expect your posture to change and you will move more efficiently. You’ll achieve a strong core, develop longer, leaner muscles and improve your overall sense of well-being. And, if you are a sports enthusiast, Pilates will also improve your performance.
Pilates at Seaview

Who will benefit from Clinical Pilates
No matter your age or fitness level, you can be assured that our experienced instructors will tailor a personalised class that includes exercises that are suitable to continue at home. They will regularly liaise with your referring practitioner and keep the classes interesting by introducing new equipment and varied exercises.
Our small class sizes ensure that you will receive personalised attention and constant supervision to avoid the risk of injury.
Before you start
On your Initial Consultation, your Osteo/Physio/EP will conduct a full Functional Screen and Clinical Assessment, taking into account your history, lifestyle, work and recreational activities and general health.
Before undertaking any action, your practitioner will give you a detailed diagnosis and explain their recommended course of treatment for your condition, whether it be starting with some individual sessions, or moving straight into a group class. It may also involve some clinical based treatment. Your practitioner may prescribe techniques or exercises that you can do at home, by yourself, in-between visits.
You will need to wear warm, comfortable clothes that allow the Osteo/Physio/EP to perform their assessments.
