WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM CLINICAL PILATES & YOGA?
We offer small group classes with a maximum of 4 to 5 participants.
Wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle.
Please wear grip socks.
At Lime, our Physios take the Pilates classes, unlike Pilates classes at a Studio or gym. Participants work to an individual or specially tailored program which ensures the exercises they are doing are right for their situation – be it ongoing rehabilitation or recovery from illness or injury.
Our Physios oversee each participant’s exercise program, ensure their technique is correct and determine when they can move to the next level.
Before commencing classes, participants are individually assessed by a Physio with exercises carefully selected to ensure they optimise gains while significantly reducing the likelihood of aggravating an existing injury.

YOGA is a practice that has been around for over 5000 years and has developed into many different branches and forms. From Bikram “hot” yoga to gentle Hatha yoga there are many varieties to choose from. Yoga literally means yoke or union. This signifies the integration of mind, body and spirit to develop into a more conscious or “enlightened “ human being. Through physical poses, breathing exercises and meditation you are trained in quieting the mind, being more aware of your physical body and thought patterns and working in the present moment. Its hard to think about what to cook for dinner when you’re balancing on one leg or your head!.
Yoga can become a philosophical way of life with guidelines on how to live a yogic way. It can become more than a physical practice and lead to deep spiritual practices.
Yoga also provides many health benefits to the body, which include but are not limited to the following:
- Improves flexibility
- Improve circulation
- Contribute to lowering blood pressure
- Improves mobility
- Improves posture
- Gain control over breathing patterns
WHAT'S RIGHT FOR ME? PILATES OR YOGA?
In our busy daily lives sometimes we just need to choose one type of exercise. So when it comes to the latest in exercise therapy which one do you choose? Both Yoga and Pilates have wonderful benefits for the body and mind and both have solid science and research backing up the effectiveness of each practice. However if you are recovering from illness or injury, Clinical Pilates classes under the instruction of our qualified Physios would be a better exercise option.
