Clinical Exercise Classes /


Our Clinical Exercises Classes* are not just for fitness, but are designed specifically to target your musculoskeletal problems. This may be to reduce pain and tightness, and to strengthen and stabilise specific parts of the body. Current research proves that body areas that have been injured can lose stability, which can lead to muscle spasm, causing pain and tightness. Our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists have training in Clinical Pilates from DMA Clinical Pilates, and  The Pilates Institute of QLD ( who are Physiotherapists) and some exercises are influenced by Pilates, as well as Physiotherapy.

You must have a Clinical Exercises Assessment with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist here, before starting classes.

The APA (Australian Physiotherapy Association) states that:

“Physio sessions are a mixture of clinically appropriate exercises, which may include exercises delivered on Pilates equipment or exercises drawn from Pilates that target their particular needs. Physios deliver these exercises within an evidence-based and therapeutic framework, rather than purely for fitness.”
