Got Pilates Questions? We got Pilates Answers

Due to extensive renovations upsatairs we are temporarily moving the studio from 24th July for 6 or so weeks, to ensure peace and quiet during sessions.

The temporary studio is at 4 Petrie terrace.

See this blog post all about it for more info on parking and things.

We ask that you are in your workout clothes when you arrive, arrive right on time, not early and bring a clean towel. And please keep your Mindbody profile up to date. Check out our full Covid operations here.

Short answer – yes – if you are injury free and have a basic level of fitness. Group classes can be challenging and move relatively quickly, but if you are accustomed to exercise you will be able to dive right in.
Group sessions are not suitable for pregnancy, osteoporosis, pelvic floor conditions, or any current injuries that require movement modification. All of these can be accommodated in Studio Sessions.

Unfortunately not. Our CBD studio is up two flights of stairs. 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.

Comfortable clothes that you can move easily in – your regular gym gear will do the trick. Bring clean socks and a towel too. Wear sneakers for TRX.

Start with 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.

Yes! Pilates is used to help with rehabilitation.
You will need to have an Initial Consultation so that we can assess your needs and get you on the right track. Depending on your injury this could mean continuing Private Sessions or moving to Studio Sessions and eventually group classes if you’re into that sort of thing.

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 sell MoveActive grippy socks in the studio for $15.

Bring clean socks and a towel for all Pilates classes.
Make sure you’ve got sneakers for TRX.

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. Find more details here.

We’re generally closed all public holidays. You shouldn’t be able to actually book a session on a public holiday unless there is an exception. If you have a session booked on a public holiday and are unsure, talk to or contact your instructor at info@movementprinciple.com.au
