Classes

 

Physiotherapy Matters are excited to be launching a new timetable of classes from 1st July 2018.   Our range of health and fitness classes are suitable for all ages and abilities, located within brand new facilities opening under our partner company Health and Exercise Matters, located behind our head office clinic in Regent Centre. 

 

Physiotherapy Led Pilates

Our Physiotherapy led Pilates classes are suitable for beginners to intermediate levels. Pilates is brilliant for body shaping, toning, and developing muscular endurance.  More importantly, it is a great way to improve your core strength and stability of the spine/pelvis, posture, and flexibility/mobility of the body; all essential in preventing or reducing your risk of back and neck pain and other muscle/joint problems.

There are many Pilates classes but from our experience quality is key. We are proud to offer classes run by Chartered Physiotherapists in small groups to ensure high quality teaching and close supervision.
