CLINICAL REHAB PILATES
Personalised one-on-one pilates for rehabilitation
Amanda firstly ensures you are safe to start pilates, she will then walk you through the pilates basics to be able to align and connect to the appropriate muscles required to do pilates movements safely and correctly. After this is achieved the focus is then on improving your ability to find and activate your abdominal and pelvic muscles and layer on other movements both on the mat as well as in standing that focus on your movement or sports related goals. I encourage home and work practise that is goal orientated and meaningful to you to emphasise clinical pilates practise benefits.
Amanda has a specialised interest in managing the following with Clinical Pilates:
Post Surgical Spinal/Upper limb/lower limb rehabilitation
Pre and Post Natal Trained
Hyper-mobility a Rheumatic conditions (adults and adolescents)
Pilates for pregnancy
Pre and Post Natal Pilates can help you strengthen and prepare you for all stages of becoming a mum! When you are guided by a qualified practitioner it is safe. The exercises are undertaken to improve the pelvic floor, back and core stability, build endurance and strength while improving general movement and diaphragmatic breathing.
Amanda can support you throughout the natural bodily changes that occur throughout your pregnancy. She is fully trained in both pre and post natal clinical pilates as well as managing different pregnancy related pain syndromes. Over the years she has developed methods in which are realistic and specific for you to ensure you are able to undertake your own individualised exercise plan at home as well as exercises that are quick and effective for you to continue to do when baby arrives and to suit your busy active life!
