Eleanor Searle, founder of Stretch was the first fully qualified physiotherapist and APPI Pilates instructor in Chelmsford. She has explained some of the many benefits of this fast-growing exercise technique for us below:
“Pilates is essentially a programme of conditioning exercises, designed to improve posture, flexibility and core stability.”
“Pilates exercises often complement physiotherapy treatment as they can be effective in the rehabilitation of those with back and pelvic pain.”
“Modified Pilates is a series of Pilates based exercises that have been adapted for people with illness or injuries. The low-impact stretches and resistance exercises can be tailored to for all ages and fitness levels.”
Those wishing to find out more about the one-to-one sessions on offer at Stretch are encouraged to visit the company’s website. Small group classes are also available via their colleagues at the Hummingbird Centre. Please note that places are limited and are provided on a first-come-first served basis.
