At Arc Pilates our studio classes are tailored to you, the individual.
We start with an initial consultation so you can tell us your goals and we spend time looking at your body, observing how you move and teaching you some fundamentals of the Pilates technique.
If you are injured or in pain we begin with movements that are designed to relax your nervous system, calm your breathing and help reduce tension in the body. Our aim is to build trust, working safely and without aggravating pain.
Communication is vital for us to understand what your body is experiencing so we ask questions and offer alternatives if a movement doesn’t feel right in your body. Our interest is in what you can do rather than what you can’t do.
The Pilates equipment is designed to offer both assistance and resistance. The Reformer, Cadillac, Wundachair and Ladder Barrel are each unique and offer an endless number of exercises to strengthen, mobilise and support your body.
Whilst for new clients the equipment can seem a bit intimidating, as you learn how to work with it, you will discover how it can mobilise your spine, provide safe load bearing to your bones and joints and increase your movement potential.
