Clinical Pilates


What is Pilates?

Pilates is a training method created by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967) and is approximately 100 years old. Mr. Pilates used to say "The basis of the construction of the method of physical conditioning is a body trained and actively controlled through the mind". Thus the main purpose of this method is to control the body through the mind. And by giving such a great emphasis to this necessary control, the method was initially called Contrology.

Pilates consists of a set of low-intensity and low-repetition exercises that allow us to achieve physical and emotional well-being through 7 principles: concentration, breathing, core activation, precision, movement control, fluidity and routine.

The exercises strengthen and lengthen the body, improve posture and flexibility, assist in joint mobility and work self-control and breathing. In addition to these benefits they help to improve body awareness. That's why, every day, more people surrender to the Pilates method!

Anyone can practice Pilates, and therefore we see a great diversity of practitioners, from healthy people, athletes, people with musculoskeletal disorders to pregnant women, among others.

At Physiokinesis we decided to combine the benefits of Pilates with Physical Therapy! Here classes will be given by an experienced physiotherapist and in groups of 2 to 3 people or in personalized training. This way your training will be safer and according to your needs.

In personalized training you will, first of all, carry out a detailed evaluation of your health status,
of your static and dynamic posture, of your general and core strength and of the stability and mobility of the various segments of your spine.

After analyzing this evaluation and drawing the objectives together, a training plan will be drawn up for you.

Personalized training is suitable for anyone with or without a pathology. Being that wether in the professional or in the amateur athlete, Pilates in personalized training can improve sports performance and technical gesture.

Practitioners of sports such as golf, surfing and running often turn to these services.


Group classes will consist of 2 to 3 people per class, this way we can guarantee that the exercises will be executed more efficiently and correctly.

We designate these training classes as semi-personalized, since we have such small groups that it allows us to pay more attention to each person both in correcting the postures and in the execution of the exercises and in promoting strategies for a better execution, of that exercise, for that specific person.

In addition to the advantages of having a physiotherapist as an instructor and the group having up to 3 people atmost, Physiokinesis also lets you create your own schedule! Join one or two friends or colleagues and choose the appropriate time for you, if not, you can join existing classes.
