Miracle Ball Relaxation Class:

Miracle Balls are a safe and natural way to alleviate pain resulting from muscle tension, dysfunctional holding patterns and poor breathing. The underlying premise that makes these balls so miraculous is fairly simple: weight + breathing = relaxation.

By placing the balls in strategic areas and using the breath to induce a spontaneous letting go, patients often report relief from long standing and often debilitating painful conditions like sciatica, TMJ and chronic LBP. Using the simple tools of your breath and a willingness to let go and relax into the balls has the added benefit of getting you into a meditative mindset and enhances self awareness.

Priced at $35 these balls are value for money and come with an initial free class with one of our experienced Pilates instructors. The balls also include a booklet with detailed instructions on how to use the balls safely at home. They can make a perfect gift for your loved ones.

  • Wednesday 1pm, alternate Fridays 1pm

Osteoporosis and Falls Prevention:

Osteoporosis is a common disease in Australia with 1.2 million people estimated to have osteoporosis and further 6.3 million with low bone density. Falls are one of the biggest reasons for bone fractures and a high cause of mortality in the elderly.

Physiotherapy run exercise classes are a safe and effective form of weight bearing and resistance exercise to improve bone density and balance.

LifeCare Applecross has Osteoporosis classes available twice a week.

  • Monday 12pm, Wednesday 12pm 

Yoga:

Within each yoga class, you will continuously be cued to find the place where you can feel the perfect balance of your muscles strengthening and lengthening while maintaining a steady, unrestricted breath. The vitality that arises as a result of your yoga practice will leave you feeling equally refreshed and relaxed.

Anyone can start yoga, even if you don't feel very flexible or strong - these factors will improve with practice. In fact, the stiffer you are the more you will benefit.

  • Monday 1pm, Alternating Fridays 4pm 

Kids Pilates:

Particularly helpful for kids with hypermobility, there's plenty of excitement to keep the entertainment factor high. Pilates comes alive as a series of therapeutic exercises are turned into muscle games that challenge balance, control and stability. This class is great at developing good patterns of movement from an early age, helping kids of all body types to enjoy exercise, prevent injury and promote development!
