About the Event
What it is all about?
Equilibrium Pilates offers more than ‘just another exercise class’. The benefits of Pilates are well known from the improvement of breath, spinal mobility, core strength, balance and overall health and wellbeing.
'Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit' – Joseph Pilates
With capped class sizes and a classically trained instructor, classes are tailored to meet the needs of all class participants be they beginners or more experienced movers. Each week we will offer a range of exercises covering movement throughout the entire body. Exercises can be progressed or regressed depending on the needs of the individual. Clients always report that they feel more mobile free and energised after a session.
What will we cover?
Classes will include instruction and practice in the 6 key Pilates principles: Breath; Axial elongation and core control; Spine articulation; Organisation of the head, neck and shoulders; Weightbearing of the extremities and Movement integration. Sounds complicated?! These principles are explained with each exercise and then in a way that you can take back into your movement during daily life. It is our aim to teach you to move well all of the time, not just during a class.
'If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.' – Joseph Pilates
Who will be teaching?

Term 2 2023 Information
Classes run from 8.15am – 9.15am on Wednesdays. In term 2, our last session will be Wednesday 14th June and we will return for Term 3 on Wednesday 12th July. Although we will be stopping for school holidays at the end of term 2, we don't always – it depends on client requests! You will need to provide your own mat, foam roller and resistance band (although these can be borrowed for the first session to see if Pilates is right for you).
You do not need to commit for a full term. Casual sessions can be purchased at $20.00 per session or a block of 5 is $90.00. Block sessions can be rescheduled with 24 hours notice should you be unable to make a class.
Please contact Kirsty directly via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to book.
Please note: bookings must be made in advance of class as a ‘client information form’ must be completed prior to commencing classes.
'In ten sessions you'll feel the difference, in twenty you'll see the difference, and in thirty you'll have a whole new body' – Joseph Pilates
We look forward to sharing your Pilates journey with you.
