Core strength, toning and stability
Pilates training builds strength without excess bulk. This helps to create a sleek, toned body with lean muscle mass and a flat abdomen. As a student of Pilates you will also improve your body awareness, posture, flexibility and core strength. By properly strengthening your core and supporting your spine you will also reduce your risk of back injuries and pain.
Our pilates classes are run by fully qualified Physiotherapists. Lucy Walmsley and Rebecca Gray from Cotswolds based Stow Physiotherapy Services are uniquely skilled to teach Pilates as their extensive understanding of biomechanics and movement, along with their experience in managing pain and injury means they understand how and why things can go wrong. They can also assess and discover which muscle systems are not working optimally in an individual and so provide exercises especially tailored for those requirements.
To make keep things as individual as possible, classes are kept to a maximum of 10 people. It may be necessary to assess you on a one-to one basis before you join, to allow us to supervise everyone and make the exercises specific. Although the exercises may seem gentle and you may not get ‘hot and sweaty’ but you will certainly work hard!
To book a place, please call the Physio clinic number, 01451 822660, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Pilates with Stow Physiotherapy Services, please visit the website www.stowphysio.com.

A complementary program to PILOXING®, PILOXING® Barre is a comprehensive, well-rounded workout that is low-impact, yet intensity building. This new program creates full body awareness using a Ballet Barre for the entire class, both standing and grounded.
Think of the Barre not just as another tool, but as a support to create external resistance and initiate more muscle engagement. The Barre will aid you to achieve body balance, and give you more concentrated toning, allowing you to take your muscles deeper into each exercise, through a more complete and dynamic range of motion.
