Pilates is a series of floor-based exercises that aim to improve your core stability, muscle strength/endurance, flexibility and balance. Since the focus of pilates is on quality of movement, your physiotherapist at La Femme will provide 'hands-on' feedback to ensure you are performing the exercises correctly. Pilates is appropriate for all age groups, genders and physical abilities and your physiotherapist will tailor the exercise accordingly.

Before you begin

  • Call 9365 2833 or book an appointment online at www.bondidoctors.com so Anna can teach you how to exercise your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles correctly using a Real-time Ultrasound machine (RTUS). By placing a small probe on your lower abdomen, the RTUS machine allows you to see the muscles in action. Be sure to arrive at the appointment with a full bladder so we can image your muscles.
  • You will need a medical clearance from your doctor if you are pregnant, postnatal or have a serious medical condition.
