Pilates is a form of exercise that combines the co-ordination of deep postural and stabilising muscles, breathing and arm & leg movements with postural correction, suppleness and flexibility. With regular practice, Pilates positively changes the body. The method has seen a resurgence in popularity over recent years and continues to expand.
Pilates is suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Scientific research is beginning to provide evidence of its effectiveness on reducing pain, improving physical function, movement and well being.
Originally developed in Australia and now practised the world over, the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) method encompasses three core areas: pain, pathology (injury) and function. Each Pilates movement has been analysed based on these three core areas in order to determine how it can best improve functioning of the body as a whole.
This means that the APPI Method is much more than just a way of toning a person’s physique, but is a research based, clinical application of improving the way a person moves and functions in their everyday life.
