So what is Pilates

Pilates is a method of exercise that improves, strengthens and maintains the muscles responsible for good posture. These “core” muscles need to be in good shape for you to sit, stand and move around with ease. Using a combination of mat work and equipment, Pilates is a safe low impact way to exercise that improves flexibility, strength, balance and co-ordination. Not only does Pilates help control pain but it can also help improve your performance. What’s more – anyone, at any age can enjoy and benefit from Pilates. So whether your regular activities are playing with the kids or playing golf, Pilates is the ideal way to maintain great shape

Fun and Fitness

If you think Pilates sounds a little intimidating – think again. Many people enjoy the non-competitive, caring and closely supervised environment – at the same time getting fit, making friends and feeling great! From AFL footballers and elite athletes to expectant mums, the young, the mature and everyone in between, Pilates is suitable for everyone.

Getting Started

As Pilates is an individually tailored form of exercise, an initial private assessment with your Pilates practitioner is essential. During this consultation we will discuss your needs and goals based on your lifestyle, work and level of activity, as well as any injuries or concerns you may have. It may also include a Real Time Ultrasound examination of your lower abdominals, which is a great way to know if you’re turning on the right muscles.

When you are ready, we will introduce you to our small group classes (max 4 people) where you can continue to improve and expand your exercises under close supervision. We call them group classes but you will have your own program, exercising at your own pace, and will be set up correctly by your instructor for every exercise. Your instructor will write down every exercise you do, and will progress you each week according to how you are feeling.

Our Pilates instructors are all certified with a Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction and are continually attending national and world conferences and workshops to keep up to date with the latest in Pilates movement science.
