The Melbourne Pilates Group is a family of fully equipped, boutique studios in prime locations throughout Melbourne .We have locations in Brighton, Elsternwick, South Yarra, Armadale, Albert Park, Black Rock, Kew and Mornington. All of our instructors are members of respected Industry Bodies such as Stott Pilates, Australian Pilates Method Association (APMA) & Pilates Alliance Australiasia and, as such, offer the highest standard of instruction available.
The Melbourne Pilates Group offers a professional and personal experience. Class sizes are kept small with a focus on individual needs being catered to. Initial one-one assessments are conducted where body type, posture, past medical history and any rehabilitation requirements are discussed. This information is then used to design a personalised program.
Pilates has a reputation for improving flexibility, building strength without bulk and lengthening and streamlining the body. While many clients use Pilates for general conditioning, it is also ideal for specific rehabilitation of injuries and conditions. Pilates can also invigorate and energise the body through improved breathing styles and a mind-body focus that stimulates circulation and enhances body awareness. The Pilates practice of specific exercises and breathing patterns yields numerous benefits if practiced regularly. Posture, balance, control and core strength are all improved. Specific skills can be enhanced while cross training in the Pilates studio, with injury rehabilitation and prevention programs also high on the list. Tailored programs are designed in consultation with the client's medical practitioner or conditioning coach.
Pilates is not a gym or aerobics style class. It is also not a physiotherapy treatment. Professional Pilates Instructors specialise in movement analysis and their prescription of exercises are designed to create balance, strength, flexibility and coordination for each client. Incorrect movement patterns and muscle imbalances will lead to injuries and postural problems and each Pilates program is designed and personally tailored to suit the individual client's needs.
Exercises are performed on the mat as well as specifically designed apparatus like the Reformer, Trapeze Table, Ladder Barrel and Wunda-Chair.
