Private Pilates lessons function simultaneously as exercise and therapy because we work to strengthen the muscles and relax the mind as well as thoroughly massage all of your muscles and joints during these lessons.
Pilates is extremely popular thanks to its extensive and multifaceted benefits: notably, improved fitness level and athletic achievements, improved looks and increased wellbeing. Pilates is very beneficial for a large part of the population and can be practiced by people of all ages and fitness levels.
The private lesson follows a programme suitable for the client and takes place on a mat as well as special Pilates equipment. The trainer monitors the client throughout the lesson, recommending exercises and adjusting the performance thereof, if necessary.

PILATES ON A MAT
PILATES ON AN ARC
The arc bench is a very good tool for strengthening the back extensor muscles and for passive relaxation of the back extension mechanism. The arc bench supports the lower back in a neutral position, while bending forwards during abdominal exercises. This is very important if lumbar flexion exercises are contraindicated. The arc bench also supports the body during lateral bending exercises, developing both body strength and flexibility. Considering the unique hip and arm exercises, full body integration and stretches, it is possible to train on this bench in a way that you cannot experience with other equipment.
PILATES ON EXO CHAIR
The EXO Chair (®Balanced Body) or Pilates bench is a special device that offers a unique full body workout. Bench exercises increase stability, balance and control over your body. In many cases, the bench is more functional than any other piece of exercise equipment. For example, when doing leg exercises, the body is in a straight sitting position, which requires greater activation of the body’s stabilisers. The straight position also stimulates daily movements more thoroughly, making the exercises much more functional. Using the bench brings out all the imbalances and weaknesses in the body, but at the same time it offers opportunities to deal with these problems. This is unique to the bench.
In the case of serious health problems, a person needs the help of a qualified doctor, but often, when the treatment has ended and the health problem has been solved, the person does not become fully healthy and active. In this case, the Pilates method is very suitable for rehabilitation because it gives a person the opportunity to change their usual movement habits in order to prevent new problems or alleviate existing ones.
How does therapeutic Pilates work?
Exercising pelvic, lower back, thoracic and cervical spine stability builds the body’s structure and prepares it for proper movement. Regularly performed, optimally selected physical activity creates dominant and more effective movement patterns in the cerebral cortex, which in turn helps to eliminate pain, instability and other compensatory processes.
The goals of Pilates therapy are:
- Restoration of muscle and connective tissue elasticity;
- Elimination of muscle imbalances;
- Forming a muscular corset to protect bone tissue;
- Improved quality of movement, which reduces the risk of repetitive strain injuries.
The Pilates method can be successfully used for rehabilitation after knee, ankle, shoulder, spine and hip injuries.
