Pilates Mat Classes

New Motion Physical Therapy (NMPT) is a physical therapy clinic located on Bainbridge Island WA that is dedicated to rehabilitation achieved through the use of manual therapy, Pilates based exercises and various other treatment techniques.

Participants develop core and extremity strength, balance, coordination, optimal posture and fluidity of movement. Verbal, visual and tactile cues by the physical therapist instructors help facilitate proper form and modification if necessary to allow participation in the exercises without pain or injury. Props such as balls, bands, foam rollers, and the Pilates ring are used in all our Mat classes.

Classes focus on building strength and utilizing Pilates principles of breathing, core control, alignment & efficiency of movement on the mat.
