Physiotherapy Pilates Classes
Physio Pilates classes will be taught by Jeannette Johnson, Registered Physiotherapist and Body Harmonics ® mat and reformer instructor. Your physiotherapist will be aware of your current injury condition and will help you develop a program specific to your needs. The class will consist of people who have experienced similar injuries, who are looking to advance their home program and perhaps consider working on their core strength in a community-based Pilates program when finished.
The Physio Pilates classes are ideal for those who want to improve their core strength and posture to help with the treatment of injuries to areas such as the low back and hip.
Physio Pilates classes are also appropriate for clients who are completing their rehabilitation plan and looking to become more independent with their home exercise program. You should be fit to participate in group exercise and cleared to participate by your family doctor and allied health practitioner (physiotherapist, chiropractor, etc.). Some awareness and previous experience with core training is helpful but not necessary.

If you are interested in registering for an upcoming session of Physio Pilates classes, please call 519 767-5011, extension 1.
Before you register:
To register for the Physio Pilates classes, you must have completed a physiotherapy assessment first and have physiotherapy Pilates recommended as part of your treatment plan. Time has been allocated between 12:00 - 1:00pm Weds. & Thurs. March-April for these appointments.
In order to comply with insurance requirements, we will now require a mini re-assessment after completion of a multi-week physiotherapy Pilates group class session if you would like to register for another multi-week session. This allows you and your physiotherapist to establish your unique goals and determine if/how physiotherapy-based Pilates may achieve them. If you have been participating in the HPC physiotherapy Pilates classes within the past 3 months or have had an individual physiotherapy Pilates appointment within that time frame, a 20 minute appointment will be sufficient for your mini-reassessment.
- Please aim to arrive 5 minutes before the start of the class
- Please bring your own mat. Disinfecting wipes will be available for you to use on your mat.
Billing/Fee Updates (As of May 3, 2023)
- The fees for the Physio Pilates classes are being increased to $40/class.
- Clients will pay for each individual class upon arrival for the class and will be issued a receipt for the class at the time of payment. Clients will no longer pay for the entire session of classes prior to the first class.
- MISSED CLASS: We require a minimum of 24hr notice for cancelling a group Pilates appointment. After 24hrs, you will be billed in full for a missed class ($40). No receipt will be provided for cancelled or missed classes.
What is Physio Pilates?
Looking for one-on-one Physio Pilates Appointments?
Work with Jeannette Johnson, Registered Physiotherapist and Body Harmonics ® mat and reformer instructor to develop a program specific to your needs using the Pilates Reformer. The reformer is a specialized piece of Pilates equipment that allows you to add resistance to your core workout. Using a spring-loaded system, the reformer can be used in sitting, standing, kneeling, and lying down positions to challenge your muscles in a variety of ways. It increases awareness of your core strength and stability as you work through your exercises with increased intensity and endurance when compared to most mat programs. The straps that are attached to the reformer allow you to move your arms and legs in ranges of motion that would be challenging to do on your own without the assistance of the straps, while presenting an additional challenge for your core.
The reformer is a great step up for those who have completed rehab for a hip, back or shoulder injury or those who are progressing through their rehab program with relative ease. It can be used to intensify your current core exercise program and provide you with new challenges for your body's strength, flexibility and endurance needs. A reformer is also a great option for those who are looking to strengthen their muscles to support their joints in a low-impact format.
Each reformer session will be taught one-on-one. You will learn how to use the equipment safely and how to modify the exercises and the machine for your specific needs. It is an excellent addition to any core program that may feel stagnant and is a great introduction to the reformer if you are considering participating in a class at any one of the several Pilates studios in Guelph and the surrounding area.
Each Physio Pilates Reformer treatment is 40 minutes in duration (billed as a 40-minute Physiotherapy Treatment for $100).
