Pilates Overview

Experts in Pilates: helping you to increase core strength, improve flexibility, breathing, posture and mindfulness.

Pilates can be performed in a mat situation or on the studio equipment and at Mind Heart Body Centre we provide both sessions of Pilates in Sydney.

From elite athletes and dancers to deconditioned rehabilitative clients, Pilates is able to enhance a person’s ease and ability to move and perform strenuous, as well as everyday tasks.

Present day Pilates derives from a group of exercises called ‘Contrology’ that was developed by Joseph Hubertus Pilates. In Joseph’s words:

Pilates Mat Classes

online ONLY

60 minute sessions | Mat Pilates is perfect for improving posture, mind-body connection, strength and mobility. Qualified Pilates instructors will teach you to perform exercises with good biomechanics and muscle activation. The movement skills you learn in mat pilates you’ll be able to carry over into any other form of exercise you do as well as movements commonly performed in your daily life.

Pilates Studio Classes

face to face ONLY

60 minute sessions | Qualified Pilates instructors will guide you through sessions that work your whole body utilising a range of equipment from Trapeze Table, Reformer, Wunda chair, Ladder Barrel, Spine Corrector along with other small apparatus and the mat.

“Contrology is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. Contrology is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work. You will develop muscular power with corresponding endurance, ability to perform arduous duties, to play strenuous games, to walk, run or travel long distances without undue body fatigue or mental strain”.
