All Bend + Mend private sessions are run by Physiotherapists and incorporate the use of the Reformer, Trapeze, Wunda-Chair and Barrel Pilates equipment. Each client receives a programme best suited to their prior exercise or experience making our sessions suitable for those recovering from injury or just wanting to add to their exercise programme.
Physiotherapists study muscle and joint anatomy and physiology, therefore they have the expertise required to effectively prescribe exercises drawn from Pilates for people with and without pain or injury. Pilates-informed exercise with a Physiotherapist improves core stability to help manage and prevent low back and neck pain, enhances postural control, body awareness and flexibility, helps to reduce the risk of pain or re-injury and strengthens and tones the muscles. It is also a great way to exercise before and after pregnancy.
