What is a Private Pilates class and Why would I do one?

Are you interested in Pilates and not sure where to start? Do you have a ongoing injury or have ongoing pain? Do you feel a group class overwhelming? Or would you like a personalized program to suit your bodies needs to accelerate your specific health goals?

Pilates is all about posture and alignment. If you think of your skeleton and how your muscles, ligaments, and tendons hold your bones, when muscles become weak or tight they pull your bones out of alignment causing tension and strain on muscles, tendons, and ligaments. What happens is you end up having constant pain in the body from these imbalances.

In a private pilates session we can look at your posture and muscles, find any imbalances or improper movement patterns and help you bring your body back to a balanced state so you can live pain and tension free.

Our studio classes are designed for either 1:1 or 1:2 sessions with one of our qualified pilates instructors. A 1:1 session will be you and the instructor and a 1:2 session will be you and another client. Please book an initial appointment before any other sessions.


Yes, if it is your first studio session with us, Please book an initial appointment first. Each initial session will begin by going over any injuries, conditions or goals you may have. Next will come your full posture analysis and muscle testing. We will then give you an in depth explanation of the Pilates principles while applying them with basic exercises to test and help you to gain the understanding of breathing, and proper core activation, We will continue to layer in more of the principles with your exercises so you can not only understand it but feel it in your body.

Once we have gathered the information we need in your initial, we can then start to create your customised program that will suit what your body needs to get to your goal.

Private sessions are suitable for all levels.


If you are a student and would like mentoring from any of our experienced instructors, you can book 1:1 sessions for this purpose.

Fitness trends come and go, although Pilates always endures. We are confident that our unique style of classes speak for themselves in your body.  We don’t need to try and sell you on Pilates as all you need to do is feel it and decide for yourself.



Pilates is a series of exercises geared to help posture and alignment of the body. When done on a regular basis you will gain flexibility, muscle strength and endurance, joint mobility, core strength, body awareness, coordination and all over muscle tone.Pilates exercises lighten the load on your spine and joints by correcting muscular imbalances due to bad posture or misuse of muscles and alleviate tension.
Proper alignment balances your skeleton so your muscles are held at their ideal length, without tension. If your body is constantly held out of proper alignment, it places a great strain on your muscles, ligaments, and joints. Improper alignment will reduce your body’s ability to react to the force of gravity, resulting in aches and pains and inhibited movement. Pilates gives you an opportunity to learn to correct your misalignments and allow your muscles to work as efficiently as they should.As you exercise, you should always strive to correct your alignment because it will directly impact on the effectiveness of your workout.
We recommend you to start with the Intro to Pilates session.  This 75 min session is included in the Intro Package if you decided to purchase this option.  In this session you will learn the five basic principles and how to use the equipment.  This class will prepare you for your regular sessions.  We recommend you try a variety of classes after your Intro session to see what suits you best.
Consistency is key. 2 – 3 times a week is an ideal amount. However, even if once a week is your limit you will still get benefits.
Joseph Pilates said, “In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body”. Exact results may vary by individuals and as we said consistency is key.
North Fremantle has 3 car bays in front of the studio that can be used. If these car bays are in use there is permitted parking on Thompson Street, which is the street at the end of the block. This is a 2 min walk back to the studio. Parking is not permitted in the back of the building as this parking is for the residence above.
We suggest you wear comfortable clothing to move in that can stretch. We prefer that you wear tighter fitting pants or tops so your clothes don’t hang or move in a manner that obstructs the instructor’s view of your form (you want the instructor to see what your abs and ribs are doing!). You will not be wearing shoes during your workout; instead, we require socks with grip for safety and sanitary reasons. If you do not have socks with grip, we sell them in the studio.
