What you will get out of Mend & Move Pilates
A mat class will work your entire body.
- Improve posture

- Increase stability, mobility and flexibility
- Improve balance and co-ordination.

This low-impact, controlled and balanced exercise has its emphasis on building core strength to improve posture, flexibility and mental awareness. Understanding your body’s natural limitations and finding ways to control them is the best way to prevent getting hurt in the long run.
This makes Pilates an excellent rehabilitation method to restore the balance in the joints and muscles. We consider the body as a whole rather than an area you may have in pain. Focus is placed on faulty movement patterns, poor posture, instability and lack of joint mobility which may have caused the injury/discomfort in the first place.
Feelings of strength and stability are important in everyday life. Many injuries we see are from overloading certain areas of the body with repetitive movements such as picking up the shopping, carrying children, cleaning the house, gardening and exercising. A high-volume of injuries each year result from the inability to engage your deep core muscles when doing basic movements.
Pilates targets the root cause of many of these injuries. These workouts increase your overall strength, control and co-ordination of movement to allow you to return to life and sport stronger, faster, fitter and more resilient to injury.
When you start Pilates consistency is the key. Two hours a week should be dedicated to your Pilates routine. The more you do Pilates, the faster your body will respond. Muscle memory kicks in and your body will start to develop a deeper connection to the exercise. This will then transfer into your everyday or sporting tasks allowing you to do things for longer with less or no pain.
Wear active wear or comfortable clothing. We provide the mats and equipment you will use….and the fun (of course). There are bathrooms on site as well as bush turkeys and water dragons.
