Pilates

Pilates strengthens and conditions the body in an even way, paying particular attention to core strength, flexibility and balance to protect the back and surrounding joints. Joseph Pilates developed the pilates technique through believing that mental and physical health were closely connected to rehabilitation. A true genius.

THE RISE PILATES APROACH

Rise Pilates Bristol has chosen to base its pilates principles around the STOTT PILATES approach. STOTT PILATES incorporates modern exercise principles and applies practices in biomechanics, athletic performance enhancement and rehabilitation. The exercises are designed to restore the natural curvature of the spine and to strengthen and rebalance the muscles surrounding the joints. The modifications in each exercise allow adaptation for different posture types, allowing it to be adaptable to sports-specific training as well as everyday life.

The STOTT PILATES method has a foundation of 5 basic principles: breath, pelvic placement, rib-cage placement, scapula movement and head and neck placement. If you want to fast-track your progression then you can learn these basics in one to one sessions.

Please also note that if you are recovering from an injury or operation or deemed to require more than an average level of attention from our instructor then you will be required to attend a one to one session for the instructor to carry out a postural analysis. This is so we can tailor and adapt your pilates experience with us including producing you a specific set of home exercises to do alongside your weekly group classes.

Our Pilates Classes

One to One

At Rise Pilates Bristol we offer one to one classes in large equipment and mat-based pilates; including The Reformer, The Cadillac and the Wunda Chair as well as using a variety of small equipment.

The session is tailored around a full postural analysis, then working on a programme specific to the client’s posture type and specific goals, incorporating modification to achieve the full benefits from the exercises.

Without doubt this is the best way to learn Pilates and will help you to maximise your results and achieve your goals most efficiently. If you are a weekly client you will be given a programme from your instructor to work though at home in your own pace.

Prices from £48 for 55 minute session.

TESTIMONIALS

“I started seeing Simon due to a finger injury a few years ago. He was very quick to diagnose what wrong and gave me a great rehab plan! Since then I have seen him for pretty much any niggle I have- finger, knee, you name it! It’s great because Simon understands how important climbing and moving is to me- being in the GB Climbing Team being able to train is pretty important! So all his rehab and recovery still involved some form of training so I could get back to full strength ASAP! Could not recommend highly enough!

– Rhoslyn Frugtniet

“His unlimited psych for sport, exercise and rehab always spurred me on to complete all my exercises which was a key part of my recovery. All injured climbers should just book in with him now as you’ll be climbing hard again sooner if you do!

– Ponder Stibbons
