Pilates Plus was established in 2010, bringing you Pilates designed and instructed by qualified physiotherapists. Tess and Laura are the co-founders of Pilates Plus. Since 2009 the team has grown since then, and they are now a team of 10. They all share a passion for Pilates and are qualified physiotherapists and Pilates instructors.
Why Over 50’s?
Our 50 + classes are suitable for those over 50 years of age and cater to all abilities, including complete beginners. Your instructor will offer options within the class, allowing you to work at your own level. As the classes are physiotherapy led we are happy to modify the classes to encompass different musculoskeletal conditions e.g. Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, low back pain and other joint ailments.
Is Over 50’s Pilates for me?
If you want a gentle form of exercise specifically working on balance, core control and at the same time increasing your endurance and fitness levels, this is the class for you. The exercises encourage increased confidence with mobility, help reduce balance issues ultimately reducing your risk of falls. You will be closely monitored by our Pilates instructors, all of whom are physiotherapists. This allows them to tailor the exercises to your needs, and adjust any exercises which you are having difficulty with.
What can I expect?
The classes are mat based but can easily be adapted to seated or standing if required and will focus on the key principles of Pilates and will help develop your strength, tone, flexibility and improve your posture. A basic level of fitness is helpful but not essential. We provide a variety of modifications for all needs. Small equipment will be used within the class, allowing the instructor to add variety to the class, and increase the difficulty of the exercises if required. Prior to commencing the class you will be asked to fill in a medical screening form (this is standard procedure for all participants).
What should I bring?
All equipment is provided. Dress as you would for a fitness class, we do the class in bare feet or socks. Bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated!
