PILATES AND BACK CLASSES

SIC pilates classes involve a series of enjoyable mat work exercises. Using integral principles of breathing and postural awareness within ALL movements, members also learn to explore other fun movement challenges using pilates balls, small weighted balls, foam rollers and balance pads.

Classes are also largely educational and guide individuals toward healthy lifestyle and posture. Less emphasis is placed on a rigid sense of “correct” or “incorrect” rules for exercises. Instead, we focus on creating awareness for good movement patterns and respect for the body as a dynamic, complex and intelligent system.

All classes are facilitated by a registered biokineticist or physiotherapist, and are an affordable way to continue to achieve healthy movement patterns. We keep classes small to allow us to give every participant individual attention.

Back classes include both pilates-based exercises as well as traditional stretching and strengthening training, yoga and neural mobilisation.

Please contact us for more information on availability, costs and times. A one-on-one assessment is compulsory before joining a class.

Monday evening – one hour
Tuesday lunch time – 30 minutes
Tuesday evening – one hour
Thursday evening – one hour
