Exercise Classes | Self-Pay

The Modified Matwork Pilates classes at Horder Healthcare are specially aimed at those who want to work at their own pace in a gentle, relaxed and friendly class.

The exercises are progressive and incorporate precise movements and a focused mind to balance the body in strength, flexibility and control. No muscle group is ever over-trained as you work through a series of modified Pilates movements that transform the way the body looks feels and performs – allowing greater enjoyment and ease of daily activities and sports with reduced chance of injury.

Exercises can be modified to accommodate limitations due to chronic low back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, or any other restrictions.

History of Pilates

The unique method of body-conditioning known as Pilates was invented in the 1920’s in Germany by Joseph Pilates. Plagued by his own physical shortcomings, caused by a host of childhood ailments, he explored many different types of exercises before developing his own…Pilates.

The original exercises was based on 34 mat-based movements, a number of which are really only suitable for the supremely flexible, strong and super fit. Joseph saw that mental and physical health are interrelated, so rather than just an exercise programme they were created as a pathway to total health. Thus if you train the mind to focus entirely on what you wish to achieve, the body can master the precise nature of any movement you ask it to perform.

A New kind of Pilates….Modified Pilates

In 2000, Australian physiotherapists Elisa and Glenn Withers founded the now world leading APPI Pilates method. They believed that Pilates should be available to everyone – whether recovering from an injury or simply wanting to improve your body posture and alignment. So, making use of the latest research, they modified the original exercises and created movements that are safer, achievable, and more in line with the way our bodies are designed to function.
