By strengthening this connection, you will improve your body awareness and will learn to move properly -  enabling you to achieve a strong a flexible body that helps you meet your physical goals.


Our Studio

Our studio is located on a tranquil street in Chelmer, Brisbane (with plenty of free parking). We have a caring and happy community, so you can look forward to always having a friendly face to greet you and lovely people to chat with.

Our classes are made up of a mixture of Mat Pilates (your body working against gravity) and Equipment Pilates (your body working with assistance).

Our state-of-the-art equipment was all originally designed by Joseph Pilates. We have one Reformer, one Cadillac, a Wunda Chair, a Ladle Barrel and Spine Corrector, and you will be given the opportunity to use each of these in every class.
