All our instructors are Polestar Pilates trained. Polestar Education is an International Pilates training program providing a comprehensive Pilates evolved Rehabilitation and Fitness curriculum for over 15 years. Our Physiotherapists have thoroughly screened and endorsed this method to ensure it meets our high standards of rehabilitation. Our Pilates staff regularly attend courses and conferences to continually advance their knowledge.
Small group classes are available once you have completed between 6 and 10 individual sessions (depending on ability). These are circuit style classes using all of the traditional Pilates equipment: Reformer, Trapeze Table, Combo Chair, Ladder Barrel and Mat. Participants follow individual programs and work at their own pace with their own prescribed exercises.
"For years I had suffered from low back pain. The activities I enjoyed - golf and gardening, became increasingly more difficult. The support and encouragement from the team at Forrest Hill Physiotherapy in conjunction with the Clinical Pilates program and the treatment was the turning point for me. Working through a series of gentle exercises, I have obtained the core muscle strength that has enabled me to regain an active lifestyle." Angela J.
"Some time ago I had the misfortune of suffering a pro lapsed disc, resulting in eight weeks off work - mostly in bed narrowly escaping surgery. I read about Pilates in a Forrest Hill Physiotherapy Newsletter and have been attending one-on-one sessions which have improved my core strength, flexibility, posture and breathing. This has given me the confidence to tackle things which I thought were beyond me. Simple things such as misjudging the height of a kerb and jarring my back no longer send me looking for anti-inflammatories, nor send me back to bed." Ian M.
"I am 18 years old and have a permanent sports injury to my lower back. After a year of constant pain I was finally diagnosed and sent to Forrest Hill Physiotherapy in the hope of avoiding an operation. Following a course of treatment my Physiotherapist recommended a Clinical Pilates program to continue strengthening the inner core muscles to support my spine. The results have been amazing, I am free of constant pain, I have great posture and awesome abs!" Emma S.
All clients wishing to begin a Pilates program, are required to make an appointment with a Physiotherapist unless they have received recent physiotherapy treatment at this clinic.
The purpose of this half hour session is to screen the client for potential musculoskeletal issues. This will enable the safe teaching of the Pilates method by the Instructor.
