Introduction to Pilates
It is as important to prevent injuries as it is to treat them. If you are unfortunate enough to become injured it is vital to seek immediate specialist treatment and a rehabilitation programme to prevent it becoming a chronic condition. Today’s sedentary life styles can cause muscles in the back and legs to shorten and pull up whilst muscles in the front of the body shorten and pull down. These superficial muscles begin to dominate whilst the deeper local postural muscles become less active. The postural effect is rounded shoulders, compressed spines and a forward tilting pelvis causing headaches, shoulder tension and lower back ache.
How can Physio2go help?
Our Pilates goal is to break your existing bad habits of posture and movement and create correct forms of movement and alignment which will last you a lifetime. The Pilates result will be improved posture, a strong abdominal core, increased flexibility and an increased sense of well being. It produces a body awareness that you can use every day.
At Physio2go we offer one to one Pilates sessions with Julienne Arden-Rose who is certified in both Pilates mat work and studio equipment with Polestar Pilates UK and Pilates Precision. Julienne has worked internationally with physiotherapists, assisting with the rehabilitation of clients following acute injury, surgery, and in the management of chronic injuries.
Julienne offers an initial taster session at a £15 discount (off her standard hourly rate) for prospective clients to establish whether Pilates is going to be the correct form of exercise therapy for their particular needs. Further sessions can be booked as individual hour lessons or a series of 5 sessions is offered with a £50 discount.
What our patients say...
“I have a background in practising yoga and tai chi along with a general interest in ensuring that I remain fit and mobile for at least the next couple of decades or possibly longer. At almost 60, some of my similarly aged colleagues are throwing in the towel. I think the towel can be used as a fitness tool. In the spirit of catching people doing something right, I want to ring my endorsement both of Pilates and of the way that Julienne Arden-Rose guides, coaches, cajoles and helps me get far better results than I could have anticipated. Now that I'm approaching 60, Pilates and Julienne together are significantly helping to correct some of my physical/postural faults developed over far too many years hunched over a PC keyboard. If you are prepared to put some work in then I thoroughly recommend Julienne Arden-Rose and Pilates as a route to regaining person-shape rather than looking like a question-mark.”
