    Why Pilates?

    July 10th, 2018 Posted by articles 0 thoughts on “Why Pilates?”

    Pilates has been around for over 90 years and has been adapted by each generation of teachers to create a wide and deep body of exercises. In the beginning, it was adopted predominantly by dancers and athletes for injury recovery and performance enhancement. As research started to emerge about the benefits of motor control training to manage lower back and neck problems, the word spread and people from all walks benefit from the approach.

    Research shows that Pilates works. Download current  Pilates Scientific Information – Dept Health NSW .

    As new research tells us more about neuroscience and biomechanics, about the efficacy of different approaches to managing injury and pain, we continually adjust how we work with you to reflect the best information available.

    What is the Pilates Reformer?

    July 10th, 2018 Posted by articles 0 thoughts on “What is the Pilates Reformer?”

    The Reformer is the key piece of equipment used in Pilates. With its sophisticated system of springs, straps and pulleys, the Reformer is very versatile allowing for  three-dimensional movement and hundreds of exercises. It is suitable for a broad variety of clients, ranging from rehab to elite athletes.

    The main mechanical feature of the Reformer is the gliding carriage or platform. The rollers facilitate the gliding with springs used for resistance. The Reformer usually comes with other attachments such as Reformer Box, Footstrap, Mat Converter etc.

    How does it work?

    You push and pull off the foot bar using the arms, legs, wrists and ankles to slide back and forth along the rails in a controlled manner whilst the tension in the springs works your muscles.

    The Reformer helps you improve core stability and posture whilst working your limbs in a range of motion. The adjustable springs allow for progressive resistance, which enables the muscles to elongate rather than building bulk. Also, the use of springs as opposed to weights places less stress on tendons, ligaments and joints.

    Benefits of using the Pilates Reformer

    • Core conditioning
    • Long lean muscles
    • Better posture

    How do health funds work with Pilates?

    July 10th, 2018 Posted by articles 0 thoughts on “How do health funds work with Pilates?”

    There will be changes to Health Care Fund benefits from April 2019 that are relevant to Pilates claims and so it is important you check with your Health Care Fund at this time to see how these changes affect you.

    Currently, many Health Care Funds will require a referral from  our GP, some require a specific level of Pilates instructor, others require that your Pilates is part of a physio program. Each Fund has a different claims procedure, so it is worthwhile becoming familiar with their individual requirements and letting us know so we can ensure that we take the necessary steps from our end to assist you with your claim.

    A Health Fund List table compiled by the Pilates Alliance Australasia as a guide to Health Fund Requirements along with further information can be found on their website: http://www.pilates.org.au/health-funds/
