CHECK OUT OUR WIDE RANGE OF CLASSES

CSM is a Pilates-style class that embodies low-impact flexibility, muscular strength and balance training. We create individualised programs specific to your functional goals and/or musculoskeletal concerns. This can be done using the Pilates equipment (reformer, trapeze table, exercise ball etc.) in a CSM Studio class or in the form of a Mat Class, utilising bodyweight and minimal equipment. From here, we build and progress your program as appropriate with continued advice and education, so you are left feeling a better version of YOU.

Under the supervision of our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists, we aim to improve the following techniques:

Enhanced Motor Control, Coordination, Breathing, Endurance, Strength Building, Postural Movements, Movement Patterns, Body Awareness and Balance

Who would benefit?

Our classes are designed to suit a wide range of problems and deficits with nil age restrictions or prior experience necessary. The classes aim to benefit those with the following concerns:

Acute & Chronic Injuries, Neurological Conditions, Post-Surgical Patients, Arthritis, Rheumatological Issues, General Conditioning Concerns and Osteoporosis

Our Pilates classes can also be used as an adjunct for injury prevention and screening. This means you do not have to be directly injured to be a part of our community.

By booking in for an assessment, we can develop specific programs appropriate for your presenting issue/concern and tailor your progressions accordingly. For more information, please contact your local sports and spinal centre location to arrange a consultation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We recommend bringing a towel and a water bottle. If you are attending a CSM class we highly recommend using a pair of Pilates socks. You can purchase a pair in the clinic if needed.

We recommend wearing clothing that you would feel most comfortable in to perform the exercise. The same goes for footwear, runners are recommended.

For safety recommendations we keep class sizes to 4 to 5 people per class. Cancellations do occur though so some days your class may be full or it could just be you for the day.

We do understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise that may lead to the cancellation of an appointment or class booking. However, if this happens, we ask that notice be given at least 24 hours in advance.

Sports & Spinal Cancellation Policy:

  • If you cancel within 24 hours, a $50 charge will be added to your account and debited at your next appointment.

Our classes are run by our highly experienced Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists.

Physiotherapists are University qualified allied health professionals that assess, diagnose, plan, and manage the care of patients across a broad range of areas and conditions.

Exercise Physiologists are university qualified allied health professionals equipped with the knowledge, skills, and competencies to design, deliver, and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for people with acute, subacute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities.

Yes, you can! As long as you are covered by your nominated health fund. We always recommend checking in with your private health provider or get a quote with your nearest clinic to see if you are covered and by how much.

When participating in any exercise class it is common to experience muscle soreness/pain. This is known as Delayed- Onset-Muscle-Soreness (DOMS). DOMS is not something to be concerned about. It is a natural reaction by our bodies as we adapt to new training/activity.
