Important: before you start
Consult with your doctor or health professional before commencing any new health programme. You should seek professional help where individual assistance is needed.
What is PilatesPhysioPlanet and is it for me?
PilatesPhysioPlanet is online clinical pilates exercise classes, taught by an experienced senior physiotherapist and pilates instructor. Jacquelyn is a chartered physiotherapist and registered with the Health Care Professions Council.
You will receive a new 30 minute class each week to keep your workouts fresh, and prevent the monotony of repeating the same class over and over. You will have access to one month’s worth of classes (4) at any given time. You can log in and do a class as many times as you like – there are no restrictions on how often you can log in.
You will be given the option to progress the exercise to make it more challenging, but remember this is only an option and you should exercise at the level that is right for your body. You will improve your strength, flexibility and posture so that you can improve your lifestyle.
I have a medical condition / injured / chronic health condition. Can I still join PilatesPhysioPlanet?
If you have an injury or pre existing medical/health condition, please consult your doctor or professional healthcare provider before you begin. You may already have been recommended by your health professional to begin pilates.
I’m in pain all the time. Should I push through the pain barrier?
No, you definitely should not! You can still do pilates but always always always listen to your body. You shouldn’t exacerbate any pain. If you are in pain all the time, then this is your baseline level of pain, and you shouldn’t push past this. It’s ok to feel a muscle work, but excruciating pain is not ok. If there is a particular exercise which you know aggravates your pain, don’t do it – it’s that simple. Do an alternative exercise you know is ok for you, or rest and wait to join in the next exercise. As always, chat to a health care professional if you have any worries.
Am I too old?
Never! You can transform your body and mind at any age. Remember to only do what you can do. Listen to your body and stick to the level of each exercise that is right for your body. If you’re concerned, have a chat with your health care professional.
