The class package includes an initial 30-minute consultation with physiotherapist Catherine Kwan. She’ll assess your condition to ensure the classes will benefit you, and determine the areas on which you need to focus. She’ll also introduce you to the key elements of the classes. 

The exercises are specifically designed to help you:

  • Strengthen and tone the supporting muscles in your lower back, neck and trunk and reduce pain

  • Improve your body alignment and posture

  • Improve your balance and co-ordination

  • Improve your confidence in your movement

All exercises are based on the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) method. It's a form of exercise clinically proven effective for back and neck pain and widely taught in the UK.
