What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates is a gentle form of exercise that is focussed on improving core stability and posture.
Our Clinical Pilates classes are run by Claire Soames who is a degree level Sports Therapist, Lindsay Pringle, Karen Love, Clare Wood, Laura Starmer, Helen Roberts, Rosie Robertson, Georgina Taylor, Amy Barton and Camilla Birley who are Chartered Physiotherapists. All our instructors undergo regular CPD, and will have taken APPI Matwork 1 as a minimum. We are also lucky to have Chartered Physiotherapist Amanda Kemp DMI trained in Clinical Pilates join our team doing classes.
Our Clinical Pilates classes in Cranleigh and Horsham classes take place in the Practices studios and pilates in Dorking takes place at Old Pixham School, Pixham Lane, Dorking.
These mat based exercises can be particularly beneficial for patients with back and neck pain, and also those returning to normal hobbies and activities following an injury.
Regular pilates, alongside an active and healthy lifestyle, can help to improve flexibility, strength and posture, which in turn can help to prevent back injury.
We run small, mixed ability classes with a maximum of 8-10 people, subject to location, to ensure that the correct guidance and individual attention is given to everyone in the class. This allows our instructors to ensure that the exercises are being completed correctly, and if necessary adapt the exercise to suit an individual.
Classes are run in terms of 5 or 6 weeks, with dates arranged for the year in advance. However, do see below for details on our Flexi Class scheme if you are able to unable to attend a class.
Prior to joining a pilates class you will have a 1:1 session with the instructor here in the clinic and this will be included in all three membership plans. If for whatever reason after taking the 1:1, the membership is ceased within the first month of joining, there will be a £25 charge for this session. In this session you will cover the basic exercises and techniques. This session also allows our instructors to find out about any injuries you may have, enabling them to adapt the exercises in the class for you as necessary.
Cranfold’s Membership Plan
Please note that if a member is more than 10 mins late for a class, they may not be admitted, as the warm up may have finished and it can be disruptive.
Flexi Class Scheme
As we cannot offer refunds or reduce the cost of the term for any sessions you may be unable to make, we do our best to accommodate you in an alternative class within the term so that you don’t miss out! To take advantage of this arrangement, you simply need to tell us at the time of booking your place for the term, or give us at least 48 hours notice of any dates that you are unable to attend. Replacement classes will be offered as spaces become available.
It should be noted that the replacement class may be taught by a different therapist to their usual class. It is the class member’s responsibility to inform the teacher of any relevant injuries/medical history at the start of the class.
The teacher will be available for help and guidance but it is to be noted that they will concentrate their focus on their regular attendees in the class. If you are unfamiliar with any exercise then you are strongly advised to perform one of your own familiar exercises instead. This is to ensure smooth delivery of the planned progressions of exercises and appropriate supervision for the clients normally attending that session.
