The UTAS Exercise Physiology Clinic runs group Pilates sessions for people over 60 years. Pilates is a series of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates, which are based on efficient control of movement and are excellent for improving strength, flexibility, muscle co-ordination and balance. Some exercises will be done in standing, lying on mats or using equipment. The exercises are done slowly and precisely to improve body awareness of movement and can be modified to suit different people's needs. You must be able to participate in exercise in a group environment (i.e. you must not have any severe / ongoing musculoskeletal or nerve pain which is best managed individually). Our classes are run by qualified Pilates instructors, with the program under the direction of a Physiotherapist.
Classes run Tuesdays 8-10am, Wednesday 10-11am and Friday 8-11am in the Exercise Clinic E013. For enquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone reception on 03 6324 5400.
