About Pilates

You can rest assured that no matter what level of fitness or injury background you begin with, we will have a programme specially tailored for you, whether it's studio pilates, reformer pilates, pregnancy pilates, pilates for beginners, private sessions, duo, or group classes.

We know that when our clients come to us – they want the best.  We take the time in our Initial Pilates Assessment to understand your exercise and personal goals, and then work closely with you to ensure these are met.  Your personal plan is discussed from the first session, as clients are introduced to the fundamentals of Pilates and how that applies to their individual programme.

What we can treat

Depending on your Pilates background, and with the use of real-time ultrasound, clients are taught how to correctly switch on their ‘deep core’ muscles, and then use them in a functional way – whether that be for helping to improve posture at work, home, or on the sporting scene. To assist in building your strength, flexibility, balance and endurance, clients may then be introduced to specific Pilates Equipment such as The Reformer (for reformer pilates), The Trapeze Table, The Wunda Chair and Barrel.  These all have spring resistance mechanisms which can challenge you further in a variety of different postures.

If you're located near Sydney, our pilates locations are nice and close making it easy for you to attend. We also have a Pilates Chatswood location.

How will it help you?

We treat sports injuries and pain conditions including back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, sciatica, tailbone pain, shoulder injuries and knee pain.

Clinical Pilates is a great way of exercising at any stage of injury, as you can begin with simply by learning how to ‘switch on’ your deep core, along with specific muscles that need to begin working again.  Exercises can be tailored specifically for you, to help reach your goals.

Pilates in it’s purest form was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s to allow patients confined to a hospital bed to remain strong and active via attaching pulleys to their beds, thus providing a novel style of resistance training.

From this humble beginning, Joseph refined his ideas to develop specific equipment, (which we now know as  ‘The Reformer’ and ‘Trapeze Table’), both of which he then used to help strengthen and train performers in the New York dancing community.  Joseph believed the basis of any exercise, strength, and postural programme had to begin with activating and training the ‘deep core muscles’ around the abdominal area- a fundamental theory which remains true in teaching throughout the world today.

Clinical Pilates is a specialized style of Pilates which has become a strong foundation for rehabilitation in the Physiotherapy world.  With an expert knowledge of anatomy, combined with an evidence-based approach for injury prevention and management, Physios are clear leaders in teaching the Pilates method.

Who is this class appropriate for?

The Mat class is appropriate for anyone relatively new to Pilates who is looking to improve their spinal mobility, core control, posture and/or flexibility.   It is also a great introduction to Clinical Pilates post-operatively or for those who are still experiencing acute pain or may be limited with their range of motion.

What does a Pilates Mat class involve?

The Mat class is an 8-week course of 45 minutes duration.  It involves a warm up, main exercise section and cool down. The exercises vary and progress each week over our 8-week term.  The exercises can include a variety of postural positions including standing, lying on your back, side, tummy and kneeling, in order to strengthen a wide range of important muscles groups.

We sometimes use additional small equipment including gym balls, foam rollers, resistance band and magic circles to progress your exercises, keep the sessions varied and maximise your benefit.

How many people are in each class?

There are a maximum of 6 people in the class so that you can have attention from your Physio trained Pilates instructor at an individual level. It will mean you will have minor adjustments made to master the form and we can also change exercises so that you can keep attending Pilates even if you are carrying an injury.

What are the main benefits of joining a mat class?

This class is a great introduction to Pilates and its many benefits include improving spinal mobility, core control, posture, balance and flexibility.   You will come away feeling stretched and as though you have activated muscles you never even knew existed!

How much does the class cost?

For 8 weeks:     $360 ($45 per week)  less rebate

16 weeks (extended):    $592 ($37 per week)  less rebate

Memberships available for further discounts.

Who is this class appropriate for?

The Runners class is appropriate for those who would consider themselves to have a moderate to good level of strength/fitness. It is ideal for people looking to do some strength/endurance work to compliment their running. The idea is that the class will work on the muscles used in running to help improve running technique and remain injury free.

What does this class involve?

The class involves a seven-station circuit class using big and small Pilates equipment. This includes; reformers, Trapeze table, Wunda-chair, Foam rollers, Barrels and BOSUs. After a 5-7 minute warm up we have 4 minutes at each station where you will work on key running muscles such as glutes, hamstrings, abs and quads. The exercises are designed to challenge you as close to running position as possible. Throughout the small group class an instructor will be correcting your form and adjusting your exercises based on your ability/injuries.

What are the main benefits of joining this class?

The main benefit of this class is that it’s an easy and fun way to reduce your risk of running injuries. It also teaches you how to use your core and improve your running technique.
