Pilates in Victoria

At Aria Health and Wellness, we believe in a multidisciplinary approach to health care, offering chiropractic, massage and Pilates. Our instructor Emma Sproule teaches the Pilates method as intended by Joseph Pilates.

What Is Pilates?

Pilates is a systematic form of movement developed by Joseph H. Pilates over a span of 60 years. It was designed to stretch, strengthen and uniformly develop the body to prevent future injury and reduce or alleviate chronic pain.

With consistent practice of the Pilates method and the learning of proper breathing techniques, Pilates will decompress the spine, increase circulation, promote new neuromuscular patterns, heighten body awareness and increase coordination and endurance in the body. There is an emphasis placed on the development of core muscle groups and gaining a strong, flexible spine.

Who Can Benefit From Pilates?

Pilates is an excellent form of movement for all bodies of all ages and fitness levels. It has been known to help those who:

  • Are prenatal or postnatal
  • Have postural discrepancies
  • Have scoliosis
  • Suffer from chronic injuries
  • Have sustained sports-related injuries

Mat Classes and Private Lessons Available

Mat Pilates is a progressive fitness training focusing on deep core muscles, strength and flexibility. The movements are designed to use the strength and resistance of your own body, so no specialized equipment is required. Exercises can be done at home or on the go.

We can also provide you with personalized one-on-one instruction, using Gratz Pilates equipment as originally designed by Joseph Pilates to develop individualized programs.
