What is Pilates?
Pilates is a form of exercise designed to improve strength, core stability, mobility, flexibility and balance.
Pilates has been clinically proven to improve back pain and prevent it from recurring. It has been adopted not only as a great form of exercise for general health and wellbeing, but also a form of injury prevention and management.
At Chiltern Physiotherapy all of our Pilates classes are taught by expert physiotherapists
Never done Pilates before?
That's no problem at all!
If you have never done Pilates before, we recommend a 1:1 introductory session with one of our Physiotherapists at a cost of £45. During this 30 minute session you will learn all about Pilates, how to engage your core muscles and some of the common Pilates exercises. We will set your goals, ensuring you get the most out of your classes. Ideally this session will be with the Physiotherapist that teaches your class so they get to know you and what you would like to achieve.
After a 1:1 Pilates introductory session you'll head into your first small group class (maximum of 8 people) feeling confident and ready to exceed your goals.
Call us on 01923 283845 to arrange your 30 minute Pilates introductory session.

We know we're the best, but don't just take our word for it,
here's what our customers say...
Hi Team, I just wanted to thank you for making all of this extra effort to help in what is a really difficult and unprecedented situation. I really appreciate your efforts and hopefully the exercises will help me keep sane during this period of home confinement. Colin Crook, Chorleywood
I can’t thank you enough for your forward planning in having set up online classes already and with time for us to come in for help & get live. It feels like a life line of ‘normality’ in the extreme uncertain times we face. I look forward to continuing Pilates classes regularly. Thanks again, Lesley, Chorleywood
What a team!! Really appreciate all your efforts. Thanks again for all you are doing in this time of worry and the resulting changes everyone is having to adjust to. I've been so impressed at how reactive and ahead of the game you've been. It's great to be able to carry on classes remotely. Seems you are striving to cover from every angle you wonderful people!! Considering the time frame you've had to get all this organised I think you have done an amazing job! Looking forward to carrying on in the virtual world for now until normal life can resume. Lin Campbell, LittleChalfont
I just want to say how grateful I am to you and the team for enabling us all to have a 'normal' Tuesday, a class followed by a coffee get together, brilliant! Mockie, Chorleywood
As I am one of your over 70 brigade I am delighted with your idea to stream your Pilates classes to my laptop. I will be able to carry on keeping my body and mind honed and toned. Karen, Amersham
Thank you so much for your email about all the changes at Chiltern Physio. You really are doing an amazing job and it is very very much appreciated :) Andie and I really enjoyed our 8.15 Wednesday class with Stefano. It made us realise (again) how important Pilates is in our lives and our lovely group has been together for a very long time now. Very much looking forward to the coffee (wine I think!) meetings. Thank you once again for everything you are doing! Jean Anderson, Chorleywood
