Virtual Pilates Classes

Virtual Pilates classes are now available and proving extremely popular! Classes are an hour long, and change from week to week, focusing on a different area of the body. The Wednesday class introduces you to the exercises, and on the Friday we add an option to move to an advanced version of the exercise. All exercises have options to cater to different abilities and possible medical presentations eg. if you have osteoporosis we focus more on extension and definitely limit flexion based exercise. Classes are devised and delivered by a Chartered Physiotherapist.
I have now also added a Gymball Pilates Class, Mondays at 5pm bst, £7 per class.

Pilates Healthy Back Class

Torbay Physiotherapy Practice launches its exciting NEW Healthy Back Class

The Torbay Physiotherapy Practice has launched an exciting new Pilates Healthy Back class, designed and delivered by a Chartered Physiotherapist. The class focuses primarily on strengthening the back and core, and improving flexibility. It is unique in that it combines Pilates, partner stretches, gym ball rehab as well as the use of exercise resistance bands, and has the options of beginner, intermediate and advanced moves to cater for all abilities, in a safe and fun environment.

“The obvious need for a physio led spinal rehab class for the local population inspired me to set this class up. My experience in studying and working across three different continents over the past 20 years has provided me with various tools to put together a class that I am confident will help prevent the attendees from experiencing recurrent episodes of back pain. The recent NICE guidelines published in 2016, advocates the importance of a structured back rehab class in order to effectively treat back pain, so how can we ignore this?” stated Avisha Ramaloo, the owner of the practice.

“In fact”, continued Avisha, “I’ve always been interested in spinal rehabilitation, having specialised very early on in my career by working in a spinal rehabilitation unit in South Africa. When I moved to the UK in 2000, I completed my first Pilates course, and over the past few years have completed my advanced Pilates for Runners courses as well as my Pilates equipment courses. Alongside this I’ve attended gym ball courses specifically aimed at core and back strengthening, and set up a healthy back class for an NHS trust in Somerset in 2003; I’ve taken all this knowledge and skills and combined them into one highly effective Healthy Back class.”

The Torbay Physiotherapy Practice is a company devoted to empowering and enabling people to take control of their back pain, and the Healthy Back class is designed to help those who have lost confidence in their backs, but also those engaging in high levels of sporting activity who don’t manage to fit in adequate core conditioning and flexibility work into their training regime. The introduction of partner or assisted stretches into this class will feel like having your own individual one to one physio session, but at a fraction of the cost! If you are unsure of whether this class is for you , contact Avisha at info@torbayphysio.com, she is happy to answer all of your questions. If you require a one to one to boost your confidence in attending the class, this can easily be arranged directly with Avisha. . All information is available on the Facebook Page: Torbay Physiotherapy Practice, so be sure to like us on Facebook. A 6 week block costs just £40. The classes have proved extremely popular, and pre-booking of a 6 week block is advised in order to secure your space. Classes run out of the Sacred Heart Church Hall, 24 Cecil Road, Paignton, Devon, TQ3 2SH. NEXT COURSE commences Thursday 9th January 2020 at 630pm and Friday 10th January 2020 at 930am. Free on-site parking.
