Pilates is more a philosophy than a form of exercise, recognising a balanced body is a healthy body.….. And not all pilates classes are created equal.
Clinical pilates by definition is exercise with a clinical application. Pilates at GrowingBones offers just that, with all our classes designed and instructed in harmony with osteopathic principles.
Clinical pilates promotes balance in the physical body, allowing for healthy circulation, healthy body function, beautiful physique, and evenly distributed forces through the joints of the spine and lower body, which together keep the body pain free and youthful.
Clinical pilates uses carefully designed and instructed exercises, co-ordinated with breathing, to educate the body and establish healthy movement patterns for postural balance, flexibility and stability.
Most importantly, clinical pilates facilitates the development of greater awareness of the form and function of the body, allowing participants to apply what they learn in class throughout daily life for boosted strength, stability and mobility.
