Benefits of Pilates for Children & Teenagers

At Animated Physiotherapy our aim is to provide an accessible physiotherapist led service for everyone.  We have a busy timetable of matwork classes for adults, but know that many children & teenagers can also benefit from the services we have to offer. That is why we run Pilates classes on Tuesday afternoons specifically for children & teenagers ages 10-16 years.

The Classes are for those who are looking for a fun & interactive class with others of a similar age & mindset.  The class aims to work on strength & core stability, whilst also improving balance, posture, flexibility and co-ordination.

As well as the main benefits of Pilates, you and your child will notice numerous other improvements from them attending our class, including:

  • Improved mood (including helping with a reduction in the symptoms of mental health conditions such as depression & anxiety)
  • Improved quality of sleep & sense of calm (can be helpful for those on the autistic spectrum)
  • Improved confidence & self-esteem
  • Improved cognitive performance (can help improve concentration & school test scores – can be helpful for those diagnosed with conditions such as ADHD)
  • Improved muscle endurance (great cross training if participating in other sports, can be helpful for those with conditions such as hypermobility & JIA)
  • Improved gut mobility & digestion (can be helpful for those with digestive issues)
  • Is a positive outlet for energy
