Rehab Pilates Classes

Rehab sessions are ideal for anyone who has an injury, is pregnant, have specific rehab requirements, want to push to high levels with good form or those who just want a bit more attention to detail when they exercise!

.Your physio may suggest a few 1:1 sessions to get your program set up so that you are confident and comfortable going into 1:4 classes.

Our Pilates Studios

We have two (2) Torquay Pilates Studios within our premises at the Torquay Medical Hub (1 Cylinders Drive, Torquay).

Our equipment based studio is designed for rehab in small group, physio-led pilates classes.

These sessions are suitable for women over 50, pregnant ladies who have pain or want to have individualised programs, our postnatal mums that have more specific rehab requirements and anyone who wants to experience the benefits and fun of using pilates equipment (reformer and cadillac) and get some more resistance into their programs.

Rehab sessions will be run by our physiotherapists and will attract a rebate on private health insurance; code 560. A physio consultation is a prerequisite if you are new to the clinic to set up an individualised program, book online under 'Rehab Studio Assessment' or call us to take advantage of a free trial session to check it is right for you!

Our other studio is for 1:1 based rehab with your physio for strengthening and rehab, and also attracts private health rebates.

FAQ

Why Pilates?

Pilates is a great form of exercise for pregnant and postnatal populations because it is low impact and has great focus on strength, control and mobility, all 3 of which are adversely affected by carrying and delivering a baby! It is a safe exercise to start at any point in pregnancy (with consent from your GP or obstetrician) and 6-10 weeks after birth- we have to give our bodies a chance to rest and get our heads around life with a newborn after all!

What are physio rehab sessions?

Due to changes in private health insurance, pilates sessions are longer eligible for rebates. We have now introduced rehab sessions where you can work on rehabilitation for issues specific to you with a tailored program, this may be for progressive abdominal retraining after ab separation, some pelvic stability work post pregnancy and delivery or a conditioning program for getting back into exercise. These sessions will likely include some pilates informed exercises and all will include reformer and equipment based strengthening exercises.1:1 sessions are most popular due to the high rebates, 1:4 has limited availability so please call ahead before booking an assessment.

What do assessments involve?

Assessments involve evaluation of your spinal mobility, alignment, ‘core strength’ and correct activation of the deep core. We will look at functional movements such as squats and single leg squats to see how your body is moving and which systems may require a little more work. We also like to have a thorough chat around your goals. Whilst we will have physio goals from evaluating your movements, we need to make sure we work on things that are important and relevant to you. We will start a few exercises in the first session to give you something to practice at home. The second session typically involves setting up specific exercises for you and going through the full program before you go to 1:1 or a rehab class. This allows for specificity and feedback to ensure we are getting it right.

How do classes work?

After the first session to assess you and set your program up, you have the option of continuing 1:1 classes or sharing with up to 5 others in rehab sessions, with feedback from the instructor on technique and progressions as able, with hands on therapy as needed.

Can I bring my baby?

Yes! Generally you will get more out of the session if you come alone (time to concentrate and some mummy down-time to refresh!) but you are more that welcome to bring your bub until they are moving. We will try to incorporate them into exercises with you to make the sessions better for you both.
