At Back in Strength Deakin, our approach to Clinical Pilates is quite unique.
We start with developing awareness and recruitment of specific core muscles, and progress to advanced exercises that result in a strong and stable body. We will observe you carefully to ensure you receive maximal benefit from your class and ensure your safety.
Our sessions are run in our Deakin studio and have individualised programmes and individualised attention. We use a range of equipment including; reformers, trapeze tables, wunda chairs and barrels. In addition we incorporate other Physio equipment, such as Core Align, redcord and slacklines. This allows us to make your program specific, challenging and varied.
