First of all, what’s the difference between regular pilates and physio-led pilates? Regular pilates is taught by qualified instructors that teach a certain type of movement. There are some instances however where a pilates instructor may not be able to advise on the right type of movement for your body, especially where you experience any discomfort, pain or injury.
Physio-led pilates classes not only give you the advantages of a regular pilates class but also allow for more tailored and individualised treatment during each session. Taking part in a class run by a professional physiotherapist means they understand what’s going on inside the body and what exercises will help or hinder you the most.
