Services: Pilates with a Physiotherapist

Pilates Reformer at Toronto PhysiotherapyDanforth Pilates Physiotherapy Promo

We offer one-on-one Pilates with Certified Instructors who are also Physiotherapists.

With their advanced knowledge of biomechanics, injury prevention and rehabilitation, Pilates offered at our Danforth location is ideal for beginners, long-time practitioners looking to progress, and persons with injuries or chronic physical impairments.

How it works

If you have done reformer-based Pilates in the past, training with our instructors will look and feel similar. However, our one-on-one training offers additional benefits:

  1. Your training will not only target strength and fitness, it will incorporate Physiotherapy principles as needed to address musculoskeletal imbalance, injury or mobility disorder, and injury prevention.
  2. Your training will be provided by two of the most qualified and knowledgeable instructors in Toronto.
  3. Two billing options:
    1. Private Pilates billed normally with Paula. $79.65 / hr + tax. Paula is an experienced instructor and Brazilian Physiotherapist who is awaiting physiotherapy accreditation in Ontario.
    2. Private Pilates billed as physiotherapy with Kaila. $100 / hr, tax-free, and qualifies as physiotherapy under extended health insurance plans. It also qualifies as a tax deductible medical expense on your tax return. Your first session includes a physical assessment and examination of any musculoskeletal injuries or impairments.

PILATES AND PHYSIOTHERAPY ARE A NATURAL FIT

Physiotherapists are widely regarded as experts in musculoskeletal function, injury and rehabilitation. They routinely employ exercise therapy in the treatment of a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. By precisely improving muscle strength and endurance, postural alignment, and promoting optimal movement patterns, physiotherapists facilitate reductions in pain and inflammation, improvements in mobility and balance, and prevention of re-injury.

The Pilates exercise system was designed to achieve fitness gains by targeting some of these same basic areas: core muscle strength, posture, and optimal movement patterns. This makes it a natural fit with Physiotherapy. As a result, Physiotherapists with Pilates Certification are uniquely capable of achieving both fitness and rehabilitative outcomes.
