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.
Exercises will be done in standing, lying on mats and using specific Pilates 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, and you must be able to get up and down from the floor for matwork). Our classes are run by qualified Pilates instructors, with the program under the direction of a Physiotherapist
Classes run Tuesdays 8am, Wednesdays 10.15, 11.15 and 12.15 (beginners), and Fridays 8am, 9am and 10am. For enquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on 03 6324 4005.
