Our Physiotherapy led Pilates classes at Selby and Garforth are adapted from the original Pilates methods. Pilates is a gentle form of physical exercise that strengthens and coaches core muscles, improves flexibility and posture. By using exercises suitable for those experiencing postural, spinal and musculoskeletal conditions we can greatly improve people’s function. It is also widely used in postoperative rehabilitation and sport specific strength and conditioning.
