Mat Pilates

BSPC offers mat Pilates classes for general strengthening and fitness. The classes are designed by our physiotherapists in conjunction with our experienced Pilates instructors, Angela Strachan and Michelle Rosenberg.

Mat Pilates

The classes are designed with specific purposes, for example we run a Pilates for Fitness class and a Pilates for Lower Backs class. The Pilates for Fitness involves whole body strength and flexibility with an extra focus of central core strength, and the Pilates for Lower Backs class is perfect for those looking to maintain or improve the health of their lumbar spines.

Class numbers are small, there are only 10 people per class so we are able to provide close guidance to ensure good technique and cater to all levels of fitness and Pilates experience, from beginner to advanced.

You will not find this level of supervision in any gym class!

Classes run every Saturday morning and pre-booking is required by calling (03) 9527732.

Cost is only $20 per session.
