Restore The Balance Of Your Body, Tone Up And Ease Pain With Pilates.

IMG_1450Pilates is recognised worldwide for it’s benefits of restoring the balance of your body, correcting posture, toning up weak muscles and helping your spine move well and be supported in all it does.

Pilates is taught in two ways, mat work and machine based work (Reformer). Here at WDC we offer both mat work and reformer (equipment based) Pilates.

Reformer Pilates is designed to allow you to apply basic mat principles to more dynamic and challenging exercises.

WDC Pilates will help you strengthen your muscles and improve your mobility by teaching your body how to move well again which will help reduce any aches and pains you may have. Pilates will also help prevent flare ups of problems such as low back pain, neck pain, as well as aiding in the recovery and recurrence of upper and lower limb injuries such as shoulder, hip and knee pain.

W.D.C. Physiotherapy follows the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI) method which is designed by physiotherapists specifically for use in the rehabilitation setting. With the APPI method traditional Pilates exercises are broken down and modified to help you if you are struggling with aches and pains, stiffness and reduced mobility.

Our classes are also suitable for those who want to do Pilates for their general health and fitness and want to remain active. We are the perfect fit for you if:

  • You are looking for a Pilates class that doesn’t have 20-30 people in it.
  • You want a class where you are checked that you are doing the exercises correctly.
  • Fed up of going to a class where the instructor just teaches from the front and doesn’t leave their mat.
  • Want to look and feel better from doing a Pilates Class
  • Want an hour of “ME” time
  • Want to meet like minded people who value their health
  • Want to get stronger and more flexible

All of our classes are unique in that they are all taught by our expert Physiotherapy Team who have trained in Pilates.

Joe Dorne, Vicki Tatton-Bennett, Melanie Horton & Nina Malanga teach our classes and you will get to meet them all at some point. Being taught by Chartered Physiotherapists you will know that you are in safe hands as they all have expert knowledge in injuries and how to get you back to being active and healthy again. They will be able to give you expert advice about any concerns you may have about an injury or pain condition you may be suffering.

Here’s Who We Can Help

 

  • If you are struggling with back aches and stiffness and it’s not getting any better. We often develop back pain as we get stiff in our spines and hips from sitting and bending too much.
  • You are experiencing stiffness in your neck with or without headaches and or shoulder pain after sitting at a computer, after reading a book or driving long distances.
  • You have been told you have or you have a sneaky suspicion you have arthritis, joint wear and tear or degeneration.
  • You don’t fancy the “painkillers and rest” option advised by the GP, nor do you like the generic exercises so often given out by the NHS Physios.
  • You value the enjoyment you get from your health too highly to risk suffering any long term complications, and so you want to seek the best advice possible, straight away.
  • You want to stay fit, active and mobile and you want to do that safely.

“Look Who Else Came For Specialist Pilates At WDC Physiotherapy And Now Feel More ACTIVE, HEALTHY And HAPPY…In Just A Few Short Weeks!”

I had my first class with Joe last Monday. He is a lovely person, very friendly and very knowledgeable. He made us all feel at ease and went round the class frequently to assist or correct positions. Looking forward to my next class with him. I would recommend WDC and Pilates with Joe without hesitation.

Sharon Thornton, Southend-on-Sea

Having recently taken up Pilates I find the exercise regime has strengthened my shoulder muscles and upper body that have suffered after many years of hairdressing so much that I now have no pain from a previous repetative strain injury, which in turn has helped my posture and golf swing. I would strongly recommend the Pilates sessions with Wendy McCloud to anyone who wishes to benefit from this excellent form of exercise.

Sue Knowles, Thorpe Bay

Pilates has made all the difference to me. I’ve always been athletic, danced, played badminton, swum and done yoga. I have developed arthritis over the last three years and started to find difficulty getting out of my bath. I started coming the Pilates at WDC two years ago which has strengthened my core muscles. This has allowed me to be able to exit my bath with ease and confidence.

Pilates has given me not only the physical strength but the technique and knowledge of my skeletal and muscular make up. All under the unique knowledgeable attention one receives at Wendy’s classes.
