Modified Pilates

What is Modified Pilates?

Modified Pilates, the Intelligent Work Out

Modified Pilates is an exercise system that strengthens the core muscles of the spine, pelvis and shoulder area and is taught by Chartered Physiotherapists. It is designed for the clinical population, i.e. for people with some element of biomechanical or neurological dysfunction, as well as for the healthy population wanting to improve their strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and posture.

It is a safe, slow-paced form of exercise, with an emphasis on correct spine and pelvis position as well as on breathing and relaxation. We cater for all levels of ability form complete beginners to a more fast-paced advanced class, as well as pre / post-natal classes and a more gentle Seniors class with a focus on osteoporosis prevention/care.

Benefits of Modified Pilates...

Research has shown that the muscles responsible for supporting the back are the very muscles that stop working in the presence of pain. We at BodyRight are committed to getting the right muscles working again; this is the key to long lasting relief and preventing recurrent injuries.

  • Muscle and Joint pain.
  • Muscle imbalance & tension.
