Wear comfortable fitting clothing that allows for ease of movement. We prefer to do Pilates barefoot or with non-slip socks. We supply filtered water, glasses, hand towels, and exercise mats. Our beautiful studio is fully equipped with reformers, cadillacs, wall-units, chairs, and barrels and completed with mirrors and air conditioners.

Why Pilates?

The Pilates Method is an intelligent exercise method which requires mindfulness, focus and presence of the mind.  The method offers a workout that includes strength and flexibility training, as well as core conditioning.  

Pilates is a low impact form of body conditioning that can be customised to just about any body type and fitness level out there.  

The benefits of Pilates are well documented from physical therapy to treat an old injury, for pre/post pregnancy, sports professional/athletes looking for performance enhancement or simply to stay healthy, firm & toned.
