On Tuesday 17th March we made the decision to stop running our Pilates classes as well as our Pregnancy and Mum's and Bub's exercise classes. This decision was not taken lightly as we know much you all enjoy the classes and the benefits you feel. However, as we have a large number of patients entering the clinic who are considered vulnerable (including our pregnant women) and we decided to err on the side caution. We have implemented strict infection control precautions and cleaning procedures between clients but we did not feel we could apply this to our studio equipment. We appreciate your support at this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you in the studio again hopefully sooner rather than later.
Stay safe. From the Pinnacle Team
At Pinnacle Physio, our Pilates services are run by a team of experienced Physiotherapists who are trained in Clinical Pilates.
Our approach integrates traditional Pilates exercises and equipment with current research on core muscle activation and our knowledge and training as experts in exercise prescription.
Our classes are aimed at:
Activating the muscles which provide stability to the spine, thorax and pelvis
Activating postural muscles to facilitate correct alignment throughout the body
Co-ordinating core muscle activation with breathing control during functional movement
Increasing balance and proprioception
Increasing joint mobility and muscle flexibility
Increasing neural mobility
Injury rehabilitation - to assist in managing your injury, improving function and preventing re-injury.
We utilise Pilates Spring Walls as well as small props (balls, bands and rollers) to create varied, functional and challenging exercises for your level of strength and function.
Our small class numbers (maximum of 8 per class) ensures that the Physiotherapist running the class can closely monitor your technique and provide feedback.
We have devised different levels of classes to ensure that everyone is appropriately challenged and gets maximum benefit out of their class.
Please speak with our reception staff to book a place in one of our Physiotherapy run classes.

Pre Exercise Assessment
Not everyone needs pre-exercise assessment prior to attending our Physiotherapy run Pilates classes. If you are an exisitng client and having active treatment please discuss this with your Physiotherapist. If you are new to the clinic you will require an assessment with one of our Physiotherapists to identify any medical history or injury that may stop you from participating safely. We will assess your postural alignment, your general physical capacity and your ability to activate your true "core" muscles using our real time ultrasound machine. This allows us to identify any limitations which may impact on your ability to perform certain exercises and modifications that may need to be made for you. Please try to book your assessment with the Physiotherapist who will be running the class you would like to attend.
