How can Pilates help you?

Pilates is an effective exercise system for physical conditioning, cross training, injury rehabilitation and prevention. It was created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s and utilises body weight and spring driven equipment for resistance training.

Ongoing commitment to your weekly sessions will support a longevity lifestyle – one with a mindset towards prevention. It’s an investment in your health and wellbeing and it will save you thousands of dollars treating injuries and diseases that result from a lifetime of poor postural habits and hours sitting at your desk.

And as a bonus, it will be really fun and rewarding when you say goodbye to your pains and niggles to enjoy the variety and the challenge the Pilates repertoire has to offer.

Our experienced instructors will teach you how to move with dynamic stability utilising the correct muscles to minimise the stress on your spine and joints and maximise performance.

The Pilates method was designed to challenge the musculoskeletal system through postural changes in different planes of motion, similar to the way babies and children develop and mature their neuromuscular system and refine their motor skills, hence giving the body of a mature person with injuries and postural imbalances the opportunity to return to its “youthful” organic balance, and feel as fresh and sharp as it used to feel in their twenties.

“I have been going to Pilates Insight twice a week for spinal rehabilitation after being involved in a cycling accident. I have noticed a significant improvement in all aspects of my body – improved flexibility of my neck and spine, a significantly better posture and the ability to become progressively more active. Just twelve months after the accident I was able to successfully complete the Spring Cycle 100 km event. I have also been able to enjoy a one month touring holiday in India.” John Whiteing
“I have been doing Pilates now for 8 years. Since starting Pilates I feel happier, mentally stronger and more confident in my body. Pilates helped me recover from neck pain and RSI due to my occupation, as well as whiplash. Regular Pilates sessions at Pilates Insight have helped me progressively increase the intensity in my workouts both at the studio and in the gym without flaring up my old injuries. I now enjoy the challenge of advanced repertoire that keeps me interested and motivated.”

Pilates is an important part of my physical well being. The biggest impact in my lifestyle has been understanding the mechanics of body movement and how my shoulders and neck were always tensing for movement. The awareness has helped me manage tension before it leads to chronic pain. Sharan keeps me focused and working towards my goal.Senior Executive
“I think that the most important thing for women in their 40’s like me is to prioritise time to exercise to stay active, boost our energy levels and just have fun!! I feel so at ease and comfortable in the Pilates session – it is a very happy, friendly and supportive environment and all efforts are appreciated, worked on and extended by Sharan.

Stay in the game

Pilates for Performance

If you want to stay in the game, there is no better exercise for cross-training than Pilates.

Our experienced Pilates instructors will help you improve performance and prevent injuries by demanding that you work symmetrically and by addressing common imbalances that result from your sporting activity.

As a result, you will improve power, coordination, control and movement efficiency.

Gain an edge, protect your joints, restore balance and prevent injuries that prevent you from being at your best in court, on the green or during your races.

To get started with your weekly sessions we will schedule at least 3 private sessions. Small-group sessions (up to three participants) offer close supervision to work with you at your individual level. Your instructor will advise the best plan for you to maximise your results.

Being a keen golfer who plays golf up to three times a week, I really enjoy how Pilates makes me feel stronger overall. Since starting Pilates several years ago, my handicap has come down and I feel that I hit the ball better. My body does not get affected by the same back issues that other women complain about. If I do experience any niggles whilst playing golf, or caring for my grandchildren, I know I can get past it quickly by working through it with regular Pilates.

My Pilates sessions with Sharan have made me more aware of my body, both its strengths and weaknesses.”Executive - Private client
