Exercise Programs and Clinical Pilates Nelson Bay
Small classes led by physios are safer and more effective
Our Exercise instructors are Physiotherapists: Professional expertise in biomechanics and injury ensure that your exercise program is structured to achieve optimal results for your individual needs. The courses are graded so that you build your core foundation and confidence first, then gradually progress to more challenging exercises to keep you motivated and challenged. We integrate the latest scientific research on low back pain with core stability and injury management with some of the concepts of the Pilates Method.
Health fund rebates: unlike standard Pilates classes, Physiotherapist-run classes are eligible for health fund rebates under extras cover
Spinal Health Classes (max. 6 people)
These classes are great for improving your core strength and stability while enjoying an effective general workout. Before you start, a private session will introduce you to the concept of body awareness and to ensure you enrol at the appropriate level.
The classes are progressive.

Individualised programs are highly beneficial because they are designed to meet your specific needs, capabilities and body type. Whether you are injured or not, you will achieve increased flexibility, strength and stability so that you can live your life better.

You begin with a full body assessment and two or three private sessions to become familiar with your individual program before joining group sessions. A class size of just 3 people ensures affordability PLUS the individual attention and feedback essential for the safe execution of exercises. Learning how to move, and where to move from, is vital to injury prevention and rehabilitation.
