At Excel Physiotherapy and Wellness, we offer lunch time and evening yoga classes in our boutique studio.
We welcome all levels of yoga students, from beginners to advanced.
We draw on the philosophy of yoga to enhance your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
Come and enjoy a cup of herbal tea before stepping into our candlelit yoga studio for a truly unique and relaxing yoga experience. Together we will flow, nurturing and nourishing our bodies as we melt open and bring balance into our minds.
All classes run for 60 minutes. There is a maximum of 6 students per class, which allows for an intimate class where each student is supported on his/her personal journey.
For students wanting a truly personal yoga experience, we offer one on one yoga classes where you will have the full undivided attention of the yoga teacher to accelerate and improve your yoga practice. The experience will be tailored to your indivdual needs and we will explore areas of interest to you.
We provide yoga mats and props for our students. Please wear comfortable, light, loose fitting clothing that will not restrict your movement.
From our yoga teacher, Brooke:
““Yoga is a series of asana’s (posture’s) which unites the body and breath. It is a union of mind, body and spirit. The asana is our connection to the earth. It awakens awareness and prepares us for the stillness of meditation.”
“Please join me on Monday’s for a nourishing Slow Flow where we work with the foundation asana’s and move with our breath. On Wednesday’s we practice Gentle Hatha moving through restorative posture’s, relaxation and meditation. Both classes are suitable for those with little to no yoga experience and are holistic in nature. We look forward to welcoming you to our warm and cosy community.”
Pilates improves your core stability, mental and physical health
Pilates is a targeted form of exercise designed to improve the quality of human movement by taking into consideration the different forms of muscle strength, control and endurance necessary for normal function. Clinical pilates takes into account an individual’s injuries, underlying medical conditions and specific goals.
At Excel Physiotherapy and Wellness, our experienced instructors are University trained Physiotherapists who have completed extra qualifications in Clinical Pilates, bringing their expertise and Physiotherapy knowledge to the individual session or small group class situation.
Pilates is designed to improve:
- Core stability
Clinical pilates is available on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Excel. Our classes combine a mixture of mat work and reformer in order to improve your fitness levels and achieve your goals.
Our in-house gym is equipped with reformer machines. Our classes are kept to a maximum of 4 people per class to ensure a personalised experience for our students. We provide all mats and props and ask that you bring your own pair of socks.
What results can I expect to notice and how does it work?
Our pilates instructors believe that every aspect of a person –body, mind, and spirit– can benefit from participating in Pilates.
We welcome all levels to our classes and will work with you in order to achieve your goals whether that is:
- core stability
- regain pelvic stability
- improved strength
- improved coordination
- weight loss
- improve fitness
- slimmer physique
Please note if you are pre/post natal, injured or have chronic pain we require you to attend an initial 30 min assessment consult *. An initial consult is also required for private health fund rebates.
* Existing physiotherapy clients may book into Pilates without an assessment consult
Is this a long-term solution?
Joseph Pilates has stated that:
In 10 sessions you will feel a difference.
In 20 sessions you will see a difference.
In 30 sessions you will have a whole new body.
When combined with healthy eating, and a well-rounded wellness plan, Pilates is part of an ideal combination for a new you. The point of this is to encourage you to use this exercise method as long as possible, as your body’s memory system will always benefit from strength and flexibility.
Pilates is now an important component in training programs for sporting teams such as the Sydney Roosters, the Newcastle Knights and the Brisbane Broncos. It has also become the exercise method of choice for many celebrities. That should be convincing enough!
