Pilates @ NEPP

At Noosa Exercise Physiology & Pilates we have been utilising Pilates principles and specialised equipment to improve the health and well-being of Noosa locals and visitors for over 7 years.

‘Change happens through movement and movement heals’
– Joseph Pilates

pilates movements helps healing

Originally known as ‘controlology’, Pilates was developed early in the 20th century by Joseph Pilates as a method to recover from injury and improve movement technique.

‘Contrology (Pilates) develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.’
– Joseph Pilates

Pilates for all

The emphasis on posture, identification of imbalances, correction of abnormal movement patterns and individualised prescription provides limitless opportunities for improving physical well-being across all demographics. 

‘If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old.  If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.’

‘Never slouch as doing so compresses the lungs, overcrowds other vital organs, rounds the back and throws you off balance.’
– Joseph Pilates

Clinical Pilates

Our Clinical Pilates sessions are facilitated by Accredited Exercise Physiologists who specialise in the treatment and prevention of chronic injuries and illnesses. Sessions are tailored to individual needs and suitable for clients with complex care needs. Private health rebates may be available provided sessions are for the treatment or prevention of chronic illnesses / injuries.

Getting started

Prior to commencing sessions a Pilates assessment is required. A Pilates assessment comprises medical history / health screening, postural /movement assessment, introduction to Pilates principles and equipment orientation. Following your initial assessment your instructor will advise if further private sessions are required or you can progress through to group services.
