If your injury is still in a healing process – ie less than 10-12 weeks since you hurt yourself, we recommend discussing your exercise plans with your doctor. If your injury (pain) is older than 12 weeks then you can absolutely join any class that takes your fancy. If the pain you feel limits any particular movements, let your instructor know.
The best thing you can do for persistent pain is get moving.
If you have any concerns about joining a general class, you could do a Clinical Pilates session. These are limited to 5 students and focus on you and getting you back to moving confidently. Lots of our crew have started in small group when recovering from injury and move into general classes from there.
You may practice while pregnant. We ask that you have had a consistent practice for a minimum of 3-6 months prior.
We request that you discuss the suitability of classes with your health care practitioner and only practice if it is recommended. Please email us to arrange an appointment for a one-on-one session to discuss the recommended pregnancy modifications.
Attending class is at your own risk and all efforts to understand the modifications and cautions is with you.
Hell no. We pride ourselves on welcoming everyone. We do ask that you are at least 15 years old but beyond that there is no limit. If you are concerned that Pilates has an age limit, rest assured it’s for everyone and every age. Check out Rhonda’s story here.
Some clients who feel they want individualised attention, maybe due to injury, age or confidence do a few Clinical Pilates sessions first.
