Why Choose Melbourne's Premier Pilates?
We have two purpose built studios in Melbourne's inner north dedicated to Pilates. Our team consists of expert Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and Pilates Instructors with advanced qualifications in injury management and pre/post natal rehabilitation. Our aim is for our clients to be injury and pain free, achieve higher levels of functional fitness and to increase their fitness.
We offer three different types of Pilates.
I - CLINICAL PILATES
Clinical Pilates has evolved from traditional pilates to become the most effective tool in combating chronic (long term) or recurrent injuries especially back pain (but also neck, shoulder, upper back, lower back, hip groin and knee pain/injury). It is a specialist form of pilates that has been scientifically proven as being the most effective treatment for chronic back pain.
Our Clinical Pilates program is designed to specifically identify and treat the causes of chronic neck and back pain. It is run by our experienced physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists who have extensive post graduate training in chronic and complex spinal conditions and in clinical pilates. Each instructor has undergone hundreds of hours of advanced pilates training both in house and with many of the pilates teaching schools.
Clinical Pilates is not just another form of exercise. It is a complete system of assessment, diagnosis and treatment that is individually tailored to your condition - which guarantees results. Even the Victorian Governement (via its Better Health Portal) recognises that pilates is effective in improving posture and strength, and should be undertaken by qualified instructors such as an exercise physiologist, physiotherapist or qualified pilates instructor
During an initial assessment, your osteopath, exercise physiologist, or physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your body to determine the origin of your injury or pain. Based on this they will write a program designed to eliminate the cause of your problem.
No-body knows your body better than us.

Studio pilates, or small group pilates classes, are the ideal way to learn pilates to improve the strength and flexibility of your body. Suited for pilates students of any level, our studio classes are run by highly qualified and experienced pilates instructors while class sizes are kept small to ensure maximum contact with the instructor at all times.

III - FITNESS/REFORMER PILATES
This is a group class designed to give you a full body workout. Combining the principles of pilates into a dynamic & intense workout that will shape and define your core. Ideal if you have no injuries and want to do pilates to further strengthen your entire body. All our reformers are fully adjustable to suit your body strength and flexibility. All clients will undergo a free induction before your first class to ensure your safety. This group class is limited to 8 participants so you still get detailed attention by expert pilates instructors. It's a great workout, that leaves you feeling leaner, stronger and taller.
We offer 2 levels of reformer pilates and clients new to pilates should do 10 level 1 classes before progressing to level 2. Level 1 teaches you the fundamentals of safe and effective pilates practice, while level 2 builds on this and challenges your body in even more ways for maximum effect.
To begin Clinical, Studio or Pre/Post Natal Pilates, you must have an initial assessment with our Pilates Instructor or Physiotherapist as all pilates programs are carefully crafted to ensure that your particular goals are reached (reformer classes are more general in nature and do not require an assessment and may be booked online). Most of our clients prefer to speak to our receptionists to discuss their particular interest in Pilates. Don't hesitate to call our clinic on 9481 7794.
