What is Pilates?
Pilates is an exercise methodology that targets the intrinsic musculature to provide a stable base for the global outer muscles of the body to work from. By targeting the pelvic floor and deep abdominal musculature stability and efficiency of movement can be achieved.
The programs at Pivotal’s Pilates studio in Adelaide are tailored specifically to the individual. Prior to commencing our classes, patients undergo an initial Pilates assessment at our North Adelaide clinic, where a full physical examination is done including a real time ultrasound assessment, and specific goals are established. This is followed by three one on one clinical Pilates sessions addressing the individual needs of the patient. At this stage the patient has the option of participating in the range of classes offered at Pivotal. We offer very small Pilates classes (maximum of 4 people per class) so that each patient can safely and effectively gain benefit from our programs. All Pilates classes are run by highly qualified physiotherapists.

These classes are beneficial not only for pelvic floor and core strengthening but also for the great social atmosphere they provide.
