Is Pilates like Yoga?
While both encourages a mind-body connection during the workout, each have different approach and principals such as different breathing styles and different exercises movements. Besides that, Yoga requires moving from one static posture to another static posture, whereas Pilates flows through a series of movements which are more dynamic. And in contrast to Yoga practice, Pilates uses different equipment (eg: Reformer, Chair, Cadillac etc.) in their workout in addition to the mat-based work.
Why there is no group class in Elevate Physiotherapy?
As providing a customised Pilates program to suit the individual’s needs is our key concern, we strictly keep our class to one to one and duet private sessions.
I am new to Pilates, what should I bring along for my first session?
You may come with sports attire with socks, gym towel and water to keep you hydrated!
Do I need to be flexible to do Pilates?
You don’t need to be flexible before you join the Pilates session.
Flexibility is an inherent part of Pilates, the more you do the more flexible you can be. Pilates workout aims to improve core conditioning working on joint stability towards a balance of strength and flexibility. So don’t worry if you aren’t flexible at the moment, our Pilates Instructor will customise the exercise program to suit each individual’s flexibility level.
