Frequently Asked Questions


There are a range of Pilates styles and levels of training. Our Pilates method is developed, and delivered, by Physiotherapists.


This difference is key as a physiotherapist has an in-depth knowledge of injury, pathology, body function and movement patterns.

Our Pilates classes are as safe for all as they are challenging and effective. Move Physio Pilates is here to help you to become a stronger, fitter and pain-free.


The first step is to undertake a Pilates assessment, and we can help guide you on what package is best for you. See below for more information.


Initially, you will need to have a one-to-one assessment with the instructor so that they can understand more about you and to teach you the basics of Pilates and what will be required in a session. This will include:

  • How to find your “neutral spine”.
  • Identifying understand what cues help you to engage your core (these are different from person to person).
  • Complete the basic exercises to help you integrate into a class environment with ease.

After this, your instructor will guide you to which option below is most suitable for you.


It helps to prevent injury
Clinical Pilates is excellent for injury prevention, whether you want to prevent injuries that can occur during daily activities or in high-impact sports. The small classes allow us to adapt the exercises to suit everyone. The idea is to heighten your awareness of your own body – promoting strength and flexibility using the correct muscles for the job.


It helps to compliment your current activities
Clinical Pilates should be seen as a complimentary exercise to your exercise or cross training/recovery programme. Exercises will be modified to suit your personal circumstances so you don’t need to worry that you’ll aggravate your injury by taking part. In fact, the research shows that it’s a great exercise for people with recurrent injuries or niggles.


All our Pilates teachers have been trained by the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. This institute has researched and tailored the exercises to be effective at reducing injury risk while building a core foundation in a safe environment. Once this is achieved we will help you challenge your body to be more resilient.

I have been attending Move Physio for a few months, initially for physio with Lucy in relation to a knee injury, and then for Pilates (an assessment, then 3 x one to one sessions, and now classes twice a week). Lucy is an excellent physio and I couldn’t rate her more highly in terms of her expertise, knowledge, treatment methods and approach. And she is lovely as well! The Pilates sessions have been amazing and have been so good for my CrossFit training (which has improved considerable since I started doing them) and general mobility and well being. The space is also lovely and very welcoming, and with a maximum of four in a class there is so much individual attention. So pleased I started coming to Move!

Great physio practice, from the lovely reception staff through to the very knowledgeable and professional practitioners. I've been seeing Lucy for rehab following a neck injury and not only did each session make a noticeable difference, but the detailed exercises she gave me are really helping me get back to full fitness, and beyond (I hope!) Each exercise emailed with instructions and examples so I know I'm doing them correctly. Hopefully I won't need to go there again, but I highly recommend them if you do.

Outstanding physiotherapy, I tried another one previously but got nowhere with my injuries, I wouldn't bother going anywhere but here again! Lize created a totally tailored program which fixed my issues and now I'm back running long distances which I didn't think was possible - so thank you Lize! This calibre of physio is life-changing, I've already recommended to a family member and would 100% recommend to any one!

I had an ACDF surgery back in May this year. Patrick has been essential in facilitating my recovery though a combination of treatment, strength building and advice, helping me get back to being pain-free after over 2 years issues. I'm now back to running and lifting weights again just 5 months after the neck fusion surgery and I could not be more delighted with my progress. I'm lucky I discovered Move Physio and would thoroughly recommend them! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

These guys have been brilliant. Having a bad ankle injury and prolonged problems, surgery was then followed by rigorous physio over months. I did as directed and, whilst before I feared I would not be able to play my favourite sports again, I am now back running, playing squash, cricket, golf ,etc. From Patrick to Arran and team, many thanks. Also, and not forgetting, the wonderful front office team, including, amongst others, Paula. Always friendly and encouraging, efficient and responsive Paula and the front office set the tone for a professional, helpful, thoroughly positive experience. Thank you everyone. I am now a regular and feel 15 years younger, at least. Andrew

I injured my right leg over summer, I was really struggling and thought it was my meniscus and that I had put myself out of running in the Half Parks. I booked in to see Mike Delbridge at Move Physio and I’m so glad I did, the massage and strengthening exercises got me up and running again after the first treatment.I had a few treatments and can honestly say that without this treatment and advice I wouldn’t have been able to run let alone complete the half marathon in 2h 20min !Very knowledgeable advice and just all round great service and a friendly atmosphere, highly recommend !

I've been to Move for various injuries/niggles over the past few years. The entire Move team & and specifically Lize who treated me - have been excellent. They not only help to heal the injury, but also educate you on underlying causes and how to fix faulty movement patterns or inflexibility that lead to the issues. Highly recommended!

I have been attending move physio for nearly three years. I am a wheelchair user and move have been exceptional at catering to my needs. Specifically, Emer who has helped to improve my mobility. Move has helped me lead a more comfortable and happier life which I am very grateful for.

On top of the thorough and incredible deep tissue massage I got from Emer, her knowledge, ability to assess and provide additional exercises for specific forgotten muscles were the main reason for fixing my posture. Emer perfectly represents the whole staff’s comrade and communication to where you feel like a regular even though it’s your first time! Thanks so much Emer and the team at Move !
