How it Works
Find out exactly how Pilates works.
Physiolates is a well-developed service ran by highly qualified physiotherapists and sports therapists to bring one to one Pilates sessions and Pilates group classes to you. Pilates is an excellent form of exercise designed to increase your core stability muscles. It is a combination of exercises which challenge the core muscles by using your body weight or small pieces of equipment.
How Pilates Works
Pilates works by activating the muscles which lie deep around the spine, pelvis and hips which are often weak. Exercising the deep core muscles allows them to become stronger, resulting in greater trunk and pelvis stability. Pilates aims to develop a strong central core to the body to give greater support to joints, improve posture and increase power production for the whole body, leading to many benefits for all.
Pilates combines 5 key elements in its exercises:
- Core activation
- Head placement
- Ribcage placement
- Shoulder blade placement
Your therapist will teach you how to incorporate these elements into each exercise.
You will become familiar with how Pilates works in just a couple of sessions. Exercises are progressed the stronger you get. You can expect to see results from 8 sessions of Pilates, or sooner if you practice the Pilates techniques at home between sessions.
Benefits of Pilates
Pilates is unique as it can benefit many people in many different ways. Benefits of Pilates include:
- Increased core stability
- Better postural alignment
- Improved overall well-being
- Reduced pain
- Reduced risk of injury
- Greater power production in sports
- Accelerated speed of recovery post injury
Absolutely love my Physiolates classes. Stacey is a great teacher and my pilates has come along so much from when I first started! It’s really helped me in my other sports as my core strength and overall strength have improved so much. Thanks Physiolates!

Absolutely love Physiolates - would definitely recommend. Stacey is so helpful and informative during the classes.

Stacey was great and tailored classes ...Read review on facebook
Excellent classes, great instructors!
I attended one of Staceys early morning pilates classes, I would highly recommend this class - lots of varieties to the exercises and it is always challenging. Thank you stacey and physiolates!
St Johns Street is excellent. During both Pilates classes and physiotherapy sessions I feel really taken safe and care of. The classes are fun, suitable for everyone and really make a difference, I would recommended them to anyone.
