Pilates

At Pilates of Mt Eliza we pride ourselves on making sure we provide specific, goal orientated Pilates classes. And because of this we have multiple different options at our studio.

To begin with you start with an INITIAL CONSULTATION. Within this consult your physiotherapist or Pilates instructor will spend the time to find out your injuries, 'niggly' aches and pains and goals for Pilates. You will then be taught how to activate your core properly and if required we use the assistance of a Real-Time Ultrasound machine. And finally you will be taught the foundations of Pilates that are tailored to your ability level and goals.

Which class is for me?

Small groups classes: With a maximum of 5 people in these classes it is made for people who have specific goals. Our physiotherapist or Pilates instructor tailor the class to your specific ability level and goals. Each member of the class is doing different exercises based on their needs. We also use reformers, mats and all our equipment.

Mat classes: With a maximum of 11 people in these classes it is made for people who don’t have significant injuries and want a whole body workout. Our physiotherapist or Pilates instructor give everyone the same exercises and aim to work you hard. We can, however, modify exercises during the class if it causes you issues and we are very hands on with correcting your technique.

30 min reformer class: With a maximum of 5 people in these classes it is made for people who don’t have significant injuries and want a whole body workout. Our physiotherapist or Pilates instructor give everyone the same exercises and aim to work you hard. It is 30 min of intense reformer Pilates!

What can I expect from my initial consult?

At your initial consultation and future Pilates sessions please wear gym gear or something comfortable as well as socks (we have grip socks available for sale at our studio). We provide all the equipment required as well as water and toilet facilities. After your initial consultation, you may be more comfortable doing some 1:1 Pilates. Sometimes our physiotherapists or Pilates instructor recommends this option if we feel you are not ready for larger classes. This is often the case for people who have significant injuries that need extra attention.
