We offer specialist Back Care Pilates courses which are aimed at people who want to use Pilates based movement therapy to help with back issues.
If you have had treatment with a Manual Therapist (Physio, Osteopath, Chiropractor, Masseuse) then you might like to consider these sessions as a follow on.
The sessions may be beneficial if you
- have some back pain
- are stiff and achy in your back
- have a situation where your back “goes” periodically
- have postural issues that are causing back pain
- are recovering from an injury
- are in a rehab phase, following back surgery
- have done mainstream Pilates classes and found them to be too intense for your back
Back Care Pilates sessions are for just 2 people only. You will have time to get the hang of what you’re doing, have the opportunity to ask questions and be observed carefully.
The sessions are structured, steadily paced and carefully planned giving you the reassurance that you are working safely and effectively. We have the time to explore different ways for you to get stronger and feel better and have some control of your circumstances.
Have you been wondering about doing something to help your back? Give this a go – it can be super helpful.
We can discuss the Back Care course and your particular needs with your Therapist if you give us permission.
Planning Your Back Care Course
The back care courses are held at the LS8 Studio.
I plan to re-start in Face2Face Back Care sessions in the summer (of 2021). If you have done these sessions in the past, or visited this page before you will know that the sessions used to be for 3 people, but, from now on and at least for the time being I decided that it is more appropriate to reduce the class sizes to 2 people. Even with 2 people I have not got sufficient space for a 2 metre by 2 metre space in the studio, plus the tutor, plus the other Pilates equipment. It is for this reason that I am waiting until after June 21st to see what “lifting of all restrictions ” means in practice.
Please click here for details of my plans to “Covid proof” me (!) and the studio space
The days and times will be:
Tuesday evening at 7.00 pm
Friday morning at 9.30 am
The Back Care Course runs either as a set of 6 sessions and costs £108
(Occasionally we run a set of 3 sessions and this costs £54)
Please contact Alison by phone or email to confirm your place before paying
