The Studio Philosophy

Each class or treatment session addresses biomechanics, effective mechanical strategies, ongoing movement analysis, retraining and education to promote body awareness, optimal posture alignment and health and wellbeing. We base our sessions and treatment on current research, and use both Pilates and Remedial Massage to facilitate intelligent movement integrating body and mind.


Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasises proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. Pilates is named for its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the 1920s.

From strength to strength

We recognise that your Pilates experience depends greatly on your teacher. You need a competent instructor to lead you on the journey to uncover a strong and healthy body and mind.

The Evolved Pilates instructors tailor every session to your needs with a focus on specific rehabilitation, movement retraining, efficiency, postural correction, injury prevention and general conditioning. We take the time to understand your history, injuries, limitations and aspirations, whilst also seeing a strong, healthy body waiting to emerge.
