#MOVEFREE #MOVEWELL #LIVEWELL
These one to one sessions will provide you with a personal assessment and postural analysis, this enables us to identify your individual needs and build a specific programme. You will benefit from this analysis and feedback as you learn about your posture and movement quality.
Whether you are recovering from an injury or joint operation, training for an event or simply want to build a stronger more resilient body we can develop a programme to suit you. The assessment will go through a postural analysis, medical history and your current injury if you have one, we will establish your goals and focus areas for the Pilates session. You will gain a better understanding of your movement quality, movement patterns, posture and body awareness. We will look at how your whole body moves to ensure the programme is tailored to address your specific needs. Current lifestyle or sporting habits will be discussed to help identify and possible modify any factors that could be having an impact on you.
The Pilates Session
The key elements of APPI Pilates focus on improving posture and movement quality by looking at the correct activation and strengthening of the key postural muscles. We work on scapulo-thoracic stabilisation for the shoulder, neutral lumbo-pelvic alignment to protect the lower back in addition to the retraining of the deep neck flexors to stabilise the cervical spine. The repertoire of APPI Pilates exercises also include exercises to improve spinal mobility, flexibility of the key trunk and lower limb muscles groups, body awareness and postural awareness. It is a full body conditioning exercise programme that focuses on functional movement to help you in your everyday sporting or lifestyle needs.
