We began dreaming of our own studio in 2010, after working in a variety of different multi-disciplinary practices, and having seen how Pilates studios interstate and overseas offer a more traditional and focused experience of Pilates. As teachers we recognised a common passion for movement in each other, and a love of working with people, and wanted to create a Pilates-specific space where we love to teach and people love to come.
After a few months as a home studio in Toowong in late 2010 Movement Principle opened its doors in Milton in January 2011. It was a rough start, with the studio evacuated and flooded in the first week! But the experience brought us closer to the neighbouring businesses and local residents, and we cleaned up and reopened more determined than ever to see our beautiful studio come to life.
After almost three years watching our clients progress and get stronger and our community grow, we moved to bigger and brighter premises in Paddington in November 2013 (On the top of a hill! No more flood risk!). And now we've spread to a second location, offering our unique pilates experience in the Brisbane CBD.
Over the years we’ve watched our dedicated and loyal clientele grow stronger, healthier, and happier with less daily pain and quicker recovery from injuries. We’ve welcomed new clients from all walks of life: athletes, teenagers, retirees, new parents, workaholics. We’ve introduced new forms of classes to help people add fitness training in a safe and supervised format, and to provide interesting and new challenges to old and new clients alike. We’ve taken on fantastic staff who share our passion and demonstrate exceptional teaching qualities. And we’ve juggled our business with our families and watched them both grow!
As people and as teachers, our experiences and backgrounds are different, and yet our vision is the same - quality Pilates, true to the principles, taught in a safe and effective environment. We hope you enjoy your experience with us.
