I started my pilates journey at fifteen after buying Windsor Pilates off a TV shopping channel. I have fond memories of placing my mat in the lounge room following the instructions of Marie Windsor.  I took to it straight away and loved the way it made me feel but unfortunately I ignored my inner voice telling me to pursue a career in health and fitness. 15 years down the track I found myself totally stressed out in a corporate role that was killing me slowly. 

It was at this time that I first tried reformer pilates, after one class I was hooked. The changes to my body were extremely fast and impressive but the changes to my mental health blew me away.  To me, reformer pilates is moving meditation, there is no room for a running mind when every muscle is burning and you are focusing on your breath.

PILATES INSTRUCTOR

‘A passion for movement, body/mind awareness, and helping others has led Jodie to a career in Pilates. 

She received her Cert IV in Pilates & a Diploma of Clinical Pilates at Breathe Education. She also has a Cert IV in Fitness and a Cert IV in Allied Health Assistance. 

It was through her own recovery that she truly began to appreciate all of the benefits of Pilates.

Amazed by her quick recovery and transformation into a stronger and better functioning body, Pilates became an essential life long practice in maintaining balance and strength in her own body.   Jodie loves helping others reach their personal goals of looking and feeling their best.'

Can I pay for classes in the studio?

Absolutely, we can take payments in the studio and book you in manually if you prefer this than using the Mindbody App.  Come and see us anytime. 

Mindbody? What is it, how do I use it?

Mindbody is an online software that allows easy access for client's to pay for our packages and memberships and book into classes prior to the class commencing.  Best way to use Mindbody is to follow one of the many links in this website, there is a BOOK button at the top of this page.  Follow the link, create a profile, select your package, book your class and you are DONE. 

If you are having trouble please don't hesitate to call or come and see us in the studio.

It's my first class (yay!) what do I do? What do I bring?

Please arrive 15 minutes early to your first class. This will give you time to familiarise yourself with the studio, fill out a registration form, meet your Trainer and have a quick run down on the reformer you will use during class. If you’re late to your first class you might not be able to train as all paperwork is required to be completed before starting. 

What facilities do you have?

There are bathroom facilities in the Maudsland Central complex. Please note that we do not have showers. 

Do you have child minding facilities?

Children who are unable to sit still for prolonged periods are welcome at the studio, unfortunately we do not have child minding facilities so little ones are not able to come to the studio outside of our child friendly classes.

How many classes should I do?

This is very personal however to get the most benefit from resisitance training we recommend 2-3 classes a week. 

What is your cancellation policy?

Due to the small number of reformer we have a strict 12 hour cancellation policy. Some reformer pilates studios have up to 15 beds which allows greater flexibility however as we are a boutique studio we don't want people to miss out.  Please cancel your session within the timeframe otherwise you will loose your session.  If you are a no show or absent you will be debited a $15 late cancel / absent free. We do have to be fair and consistent with all clients therefore no exceptions will be made to this cancellation policy. If you are on an unlimited pack your account will be debited a $15 late cancel / absent free for no shows. We understand that sometimes unforeseeable circumstances can arise and life can sometimes get in the way, but we need to be fair and consistent with all clients. When possible, if you can't make it, please do cancel your class before it starts rather than just not rocking up, in order to free up and spot for another client.
