Clinical Pilates is a safe, effective form of exercise for any age, fitness level or medical condition. Clinical Pilates utilizes a wide variety of exercises designed to improve core stability, flexibility, endurance and posture.
Liam Gellie has recently completed an updated Clinical Pilates course with an interesting new focus. A main focus of this course was breathing control in relation to performing exercises, a concept that is often missed despite its importance in producing highest quality movements. A key emphasis was also placed on training lumbo-pelvic stability through the course. Lumbo-pelvic stability is the ability to maintain good control in the lumbar spine and pelvis throughout movement. Poor lumbo-pelvic stability is a feature commonly seen in patients with lower limb injuries and low back pain.
