high quality pilates in the heart of brisbane cbd and beautiful paddington

about us

Building long term relationships for long term benefits.

We are a movement specialist studio providing beautiful spaces and intelligent instruction, where you will feel welcomed, inspired and empowered to move regularly.

For nine years we’ve been providing reliable and inspiring environments for people to return to again and again to improve their movement habits and make regular time for their health. We help you habitualize good movement and prioritize it as part of your lifestyle.

What we do

The Pilates method builds upon the basic necessity of the human body to move. It’s unplugged but connected; organic yet naturally complex; it restores and strengthens movement patterns that already exist in your body, enabling you to adapt to the demands of your daily life and the world around you.

We offer

  • Pilates studio sessions, Private and Semi-private
  • Reformer group classes
  • Mat group classes
  • TRX group classes
  • Pilates teacher training in partnership with PilatesITC
  • Corporate sessions and offsite workshops
  • Continuing education and professional development for movement teachers

Why pilates?

Using your body should be a pleasure instead of a pain. Through our support and application of the Pilates method, as well as drawing inspiration from complementary movement modalities and allied health practices, we share our knowledge with you to empower your own journey. We are inquisitive and adaptable; we love problem solving and are passionate about helping people unburden the body through good movement practice and exercise. Pilates empowers you to understand your body and use it well. Continue to make it stronger and more efficient. Exercise your right to good movement.

We believe in movement as the methodology for wellness and pain management, and see it as the perfect antidote to life in a technology-driven world.

our people

Our people make the difference.

Our team is built with passionate, highly educated and intuitive teachers who can problem solve and be creative in their tailoring of movement to individuals and group classes alike. Time and time again our clients tell us that it’s the support and guidance they receive in our classes that has them leaving class feeling well worked out as well as well looked after. It always brings a smile to our face to hear this! We are so proud of their passion and dedication to their craft. The intelligent ways our teachers program, and the empathy and compassion of their interaction with our clients, is what makes them some of the best in the business, and why we are investing in the newer generation of teachers though our teacher training program. We strive to mentor and guide both our students and our teachers to be their best, through mentoring, internal training and continuing education opportunities that continue to elevate our industry in general, and our team to the highest standard of Pilates professionals in Australia.

faqs

We recommend booking an initial consultation so we can take you through the basics and give you some tips on how to best learn the movements. However, if you are looking to attend CBD group classes and have no injuries or concerns, and ideally are used to attending other types of general fitness classes (gym, dance etc), you can jump straight into a group class – we recommend Reformer: Balance or a Pilates Mat class to begin.

Our recommendation for pregnancy is to join a studio session or private session. The changing needs of your body throughout each stage can be safely and effectively addressed in these classes and we can tailor the session to your needs and how you feel on the day. CBD Group classes can be attended up to 16 weeks of pregnancy.

We sure do! Drop us an email with your requirements and we’ll be able to let you know what times we have available. Costs depend on size and duration of the booking.

We sell MoveActive grippy socks in the studio for $15.

Unfortunately not. Our CBD studio is up two flights of stairs (heritage listed building so on the steep side, but makes a great warm up!). Our Paddington studio has a small number of steps into the studio. However, ramp-only access can be arranged via side door by prior arrangement.

Our CBD studio has two change rooms and a bathroom. Our Paddington studio has a bathroom with shower. Both studios have open shelves and hooks for your belongings.

Our Paddington studio has limited parking on site but is positioned directly across the road (pedestrian crossing) from the shopping centre and has plenty of street parks nearby. Our CBD studio has no parking, but is centrally located on Adelaide Street with numerous bus stops out the front, King George Square just across the road, and Central train station an 8min walk away.
