Pilates is a form of exercise and rehabilitation that involves resistance exercise, stretches and dynamic movements designed to lengthen, strengthen, and align the body. These can be performed on a mat or using specialised Pilates equipment such as a reformer.
Regular Pilates practice aims to improve overall body awareness, posture, flexibility, strength, balance and muscle control. Pilates can also help you recover from injury, improve balance and coordination, and decrease the likelihood of re-injury.
Ultimately, Pilates aims to enable the body to move freely and efficiently during daily activities, occupations and sports. We have clients who are office workers who would like to address their niggly back pain through to elite runners who use Pilates to improve their running technique and prevent complaints such as hip pain due to muscle fatigue.
At CSSM we have 3 different streams of Group Fitness and Pilates Programs: PIER, Studio and PilatesFIT. Learn more about our different class types below.
PIER is Studio Based Exercise with a rehabilitation focus, for current or existing injuries or for those who would like a slower, personalised focus. Clients have a targeted program based on their individual health goals and guided by the extent of injury or ability. Health Insurance rebates may be available for this class type (Physio item code 560). Please note, to join a Clinical Pilates class it is a requirement that you complete a Clinical Pilates Starter Pack, involving an Initial Assessment and 2 private sessions. This can be organised by phoning the clinic to make an appointment.

Studio Pilates is designed for those clients wanting to maintain and improve muscle strength and conditioning. It is a great progression from Clinical Pilates, or for those wanting to prevent a previous injury from reoccurring. Studio classes involve an individualised program with progression introduced as required. Please note, it is a requirement that you complete an Initial Assessment prior to joining a Studio Pilates Class. This can be organised by phoning the clinic to make an appointment or by booking a Private Studio Pilates Session online.
PilatesFIT classes are designed for those who are not in need of specific injury rehabilitation or prevention but are looking to improve their general strength, conditioning and fitness. Classes are perfect for everyone from beginners, to those who’ve done Pilates classes in the past to those simply wanting to try a new form of exercise.
