Our pilates practitioners will guide you through a process designed to ensure we tailor the right program for you. An initial one-on-one screening assessment is completed with a practitioner (across one or two sessions depending on what you need) to discuss your goals and concerns. Once this is done, you can join one of the pilates group sessions or continue with one-on-one sessions if you prefer.
The focus of our Pilates classes is core strength, flexibility, and body awareness, and we provide many different types of classes to help people achieve their goals.
We focus on the following three techniques in our Pilates classes: mat-based exercises, equipment-based exercises and apparatus-based exercises. Mat-based exercises are done on the floor with no equipment or apparatus in sight. Equipment-based exercises are done with specialised equipment such as weights or resistance bands. Apparatus-based exercises use specialised equipment, such as reformers or treadmills, to assist in the workout process.
Whether you are pregnant, mature aged, injured, recovering from illness or wanting to improve your sports performance, a pilates program can be tailored to suit you. Our instructor tailor each class to your specific requirements including sport and injury, back issues, arthritis, pregnancy and work injuries.
Pilates is also great for people who are looking to improve their posture and reduce back pain. It strengthens muscles in the abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks. In addition to its many benefits for your body, pilates is also good for your mind as it improves concentration and focus.
Pilates can also be prescribed for people suffering from severe injuries, such as stroke rehabilitation patients, or for athletes that want to increase their physical performance.

Pregnancy Pilates is a new and revolutionary approach to prenatal exercise. This type of exercise uses the principles of Pilates to help pregnant women maintain their strength, flexibility and balance while also preparing for childbirth.
Pilates is a safe form of exercise for pregnant women. It requires high levels of concentration and awareness rather than speed and impact. However, there are enormous changes going on in your body during pregnancy. Subsequently your exercise will certainly be modified in intensity and level of difficulty.
Pilates exercise targets pelvic floor, lower abdominal and back muscles. Pilates teaches you to coordinate these muscles in harmony with normal breathing patterns and good posture. During pregnancy, our tummy muscles are compromised as the baby grows, the pelvic floor is stressed by the weight of the baby and low backs can be sore from the posture changes of pregnancy. Pilates works all the muscles most affected by pregnancy to optimise well-being at this exciting stage of life.
The main goal of pregnancy Pilates is to improve strength, mobility and flexibility of your body as it changes from one trimester to the next. As such it is important to keep to the exercises assigned to you for the trimester you are in.
An important note is to abstain from exercises that requires you to lie flat on your back. This position places extra pressure on the main vein supplying blood from your heart to your lower body. This can also constrain your baby's circulation.
As a rule of thumb always remember to be mindful of your body, keep it moderate, and to not over exert yourself.
