Interested in Pilates?

Recent research done by the TIMS group (therapists in MS) from the MS Trust has established that Pilates is beneficial for people with MS.


 
At the centre we are planning to set up such a course over a period of 10 weeks with weekly attendance and completion before Christmas. We are planning to run the class either Thursday morning 9-10.00 or Saturday 10.00-11.00 depending on interest from the members. Maximum class number will be 6 people to facilitate individual instruction.

 
Criteria for inclusion:
  • The ability to come on and off the floor (using support if necessary)
  • Walking independently or with 1 stick
  • Attendance for individual ½ hour assessment would also be a prerequisite for the course.
