All new clients commence with an Initial Private one hour session. During this private we start to develop a program that is unique to your body and goals and address any injuries that you may have. Following your initial you have the option to take a further 2 privates by selecting our starter pack option or you can enter into our semi private group classes with a maximum of 4 people per class. everyone in the semi private class is working on their own individual programmes

Our Studio Pilates programs at Williamstown H+L concentrate on spinal stabilisation, a results-driven choice for those who have suffered previous injuries or who have particular wellness goals to work towards.

Mat Pilates vs Clinical Pilates

Mat Pilates is done on the floor in a group format using the body itself as a means of resistance. Instructors may also include small props such as the fit or chi balls, foam rollers, magic circles, small hand weights or Thera bands to provide some variety and increased resistance.

Movement wise, we will do a little of everything, strengthening and lengthening the body working in multiple directions, improving coordination, balance, strength and movement freedom.

This is a more affordable way to do Pilates and gives good results but is non-specific due to the nature of a general class program.

Clinical pilates utilises the specialised Pilates equipment such as the trapeze table, reformer, wunda chair and barrel. Programs are designed specifically for the individual and therefore is a personalised program giving greater results to participants with a specific fitness or rehabilitation goal. Each piece of Pilates equipment can offer either a challenge or assistance encouraging more length and strength into the body with the different exercises.

Due to the nature of the small class numbers, (1:3 participants) we can work everyone at an appropriate level – from acute injuries to chronic pain sufferers to someone wanting to target postural or fitness goals.

A lot of our clients do a mix of the two so they get the best of both worlds.
