The team at PPS Physiotherapy Kellyville and Carlingford host Pilates Classes on a weekly basis.
Classes are offered on a booking only basis at the times indicated on the below timetable. Classes run for 45 mins and are limited to a maximum of 6 people per class. This ensures the physiotherapist is able to monitor all participants and provide technique correction as needed. If you are interested in starting to attend one of these classes we would recommend you speak to one of our reception staff as soon as possible as we expect these classes will be popular.

Commonly Asked Questions:
What is the difference between gym Pilates and clinical Pilates?
This is a question we get ALOT. To put it simply, a Pilates class at a gym is usually run by a qualified instructor of a personal training background. Class sizes are generally very large (up to 40 people) with minimal to no individual attention.
Clinical Pilates is run by a health practitioner (such as a physiotherapist) who has a university degree in the field and much more detailed knowledge of the human body and injuries. Class sizes are much smaller to allow for individualised attention, programs altered to suit individuals needs and we keep medical records from the last. These classes can also be claimed under your private health insurance.
How can Pilates benefit me?
Pilates can provide the following benefits; core strengthening, increased mobility and flexibility, muscle strength and tone improvement and may protect against injury. Pilates is a low impact activity and is therefore a well suited alternative to balance out high impact loads such as gym or running activities or for those requiring a lower impact option due to pain.
Is Pilates for me?
Pilates is a great activity for everyone whether you are 12 or 80! Both men and women are welcome (children when parental consent is provided). The benefits of pilates are outlined above but especially those people who have low back pain, poor postures, poor core strength and control or suffer from poor mobility.
Do I need to book for a class?
Yes please call our friendly staff to book into a class. We limit numbers so as to provide the best quality care and service for all of our participants. We would love to see you in one of our classes so please call as soon as possible to ensure you reserve your place.
Do I need to bring any equipment?
You are not required to bring any equipment with you. We will supply all equipment needed for the class. We would recommend you bring a water bottle, small towel and socks.
If you have any questions about our Pilates program please do not hesitate to contact us at our clinic and speak with one of our receptionists or physiotherapists.
