Pilates originates from an exercise technique developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s, who created these low impact exercises to maintain physical health, strength, and good posture in ballet dancers. These exercises are designed to promote postural awareness, core stability, strength and flexibility.
At Caboolture Physical Therapy Centre, our Live Well Pilates instructors run classic Pilates mat-work classes from our exercise studio. Our instructors have completed up-to-date Pilates qualifications to ensure safe and effective prescription and progression of exercises with varying levels of difficulty. Pilates has long been used as a rehabilitation method to assist in the recovery of injury, but also just purely for enhancing good health.
