We Sometimes use Pilates The History of Pilates

The Pilates Method was developed over 70 years ago by Joseph Pilates.  His approach to body conditioning was unique in that it emphasised building strong core muscles (deep abdominals, deep spinal muscles, and pelvic floor), to allow the body an intrinsic support that minimises the risk of injury, even while performing challenging movements.

Pilates gained popularity after it was discovered by the international ballet community, who needed strength and body control without bulk.

Since then, pilates has branched into different styles, Physiotherapists have taken the traditional Pilates series of exercises, adapted and expanded the repertoire, to suit a wider range of ability levels and injured clients.

APPI is an Australian "brand" of pilates developed by physiotherapists to suit a range of ability levels, and to fit in with how we as physiotherapists assess and rehabilitate injuries.

FLEXercise Classes Will Help You:

     >      Recognise non optimal movement strategies and retrain more optimal patterns

>      Develop a strong abdomen, lower back, and buttocks

     >      Improve your posture and flexibility

     >      Learn breath awareness and release tension

     >      Master better body control, becoming stronger in both upper and lower body

     >      Help prevent injury via improved body awareness, or recover from your injury

>      Relax, rejuvenate and feel better

FLEXercise Principles to Retrain more Optimal Movement

>   Recognise & Retrain non-optimal movement patterns

>   Research based rehabilitation

>   Breathing

>   Control - using core and proximal stability

>    Flowing, smooth, easy movement

>   Dissociation - learning multiple movement options

As Physiotherapists, we also refer to "Dissociation" which combines the concepts of centering, control and precise, flowing movement.  Dissociation means that you can hold one region stable whilst moving independently at a nearby segment.  (eg. stabilise your spine as you flex and extend at your hip)  Physiotherapy research shows us this skill is important in rehabilitation of injuries, as well as in preventing injuries.
