PilatesCan ManukaExcellentPilatesCan Manuka5.0 Based on 80 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onharrison H.harrison H. ★★★★★ I am posting a review on behalf of my grandmother Rae Harvey as she does not have a google account: "I first joined a Pilates class years ago to get help with back problems. I had no idea what to expect, but it was such a helpful and healthy experience that I can’t imagine ever not going. The Pilates teachers at PilatesCan do many years of training and they know how the body works, they somehow know right where that particular bit hurts. It’s hard to explain why you feel so good after a Pilates session, you feel as though every bit of your body is now aligned, from your toes to your head. The semi-private classes can have up to 6 students and 2 or even 3 teachers. A good Pilates teacher is like a gold mine, once you find one, you don’t want to let them go. They are full of knowledge and well trained to know how our bodies work. In the semi-private class, each participant has their own program, no one is doing the same as another. The teachers know the history of our bodies, our injuries and just how far we can extend ourselves.I had spinal fusion and spent a month in hospital and Pilates helped me to prepare my body for the surgery, and then when I was fit enough to return to classes, the teachers knew just what my body would be capable of. Now, four years on and after all the support from Pilates I am a much stronger person and even though I am 80 years old, I am pretty fit for my age."Stuart M.Stuart M. ★★★★★ After about 12 months with Claire and her team at Pilates Can I have to say I am extremely satisfied. I receive expert advice and attention and feel real benefit from the sessions I do each weekThey deserve a 5 star recommendationDean Dalla P.Dean Dalla P. ★★★★★ Fantastic personalised classes catering for every client's changing and different injuries and pain. These instructors are qualified professional Pilates instructors with many years of experience which you won't find in most places. They have helped me with great exercises for pain management.Janet B.Janet B. ★★★★★ I've been attending Mat classes for many years and have found them an enjoyable way to keep fit with well trained instructors. A few years ago I had some injuries to my knees and discovered the benefit of the studio session in helping my recovery as they were able to focus the exercises on what my body specifically needed. I liked it so much I'm still continuing with it as has been a wonderful way to keep my body working well! I have found Pilates Can a welcoming, fun and professional place to exercise.Julie G.Julie G. ★★★★★ I have been a regular at Thursday morning Pilates Can Manuka mat work classes for over ten years. Over this time David, Claire and other instructors have all been extremely professional, helpful and knowledgeable. I can highly recommend their classes to anyone wanting to increase muscle strength and flexibility. My fellow class mates are lovely too - such a friendly community atmosphere. Come and join us on Thursday morning - a great way to start the day.Rachael J.Rachael J. ★★★★★ I have been going to Pilates Can for about six years, they are professional, experienced and offer really tailored advice and instruction.

The team encourage me to build my proficiency and I feel stronger and healthier for participating in Pilates Can sessions.Mandy T.Mandy T. ★★★★★ The instructors are amazing! They care about helping you, have a wide range of knowledge and the semi-private classes allow you to focus on a specific plan made for you. After having multiple knee surguries, Pilates Can have helped me to strengthen and maintain those muscles.Tania V.Tania V. ★★★★★ Pilates Can is so much more than just another form of exercise. They are movement specialists who teach you how to move and strengthen your body regardless of your limitations.When I first went to Pilates Can I had all sorts of aches and pains due to being a ceramic artist which can be taxing on your body. Now I can work without pain and when I do over do it they help me to get back on track.The first question I am asked each session is "How's your body?" and they will tweak my program to suit whatever is going on in my body on a particular day.I would not be able to work with ceramics if I did not have such amazing Pilates instructors who really care about keeping me fit and healthy.Lesley D.Lesley D. ★★★★★ I have found that all of the instructors at Pilates Can Manuka are great to work with. They have good knowledge of the body and how to deal with various physical constraints, injuries or needs to create better mobility, flexibility and strength. They are all sympathetic and caring and provide an environment that is fun to be apart of whilst helping each person through the session. Specialist sessions are provided at regular intervals to spotlight various general problems areas such as back, feet, etc. that assist understanding in what you can do regularly or as needed, to help yourself.Over the years I have been attending there, I have seen some spectacular progress made with people who have had significant impairments, serious surgeries and shorter term injuries that are amazing.Claire, Kirrilly, and Trudi especially are long term experienced instructors, who are especially knowledgeable about the body and its movements, and all exceptionally skilled at supporting, assisting, guiding and challenging participants to allow and help us all to improve and find relief when needed.Well done ladies! Great service, fantastic environment to work in and fabulous studio to attend.Thank you!Response from the ownerLesley, thanks for such a glowing review. You have captured both the spirit and the detail of our culture at Pilates Can. You have also identified our most important ingredient, a whole team of caring, fantastic instructors. It is a privilege to be able to assist you, and all our clients, improve their mobility and strength. We love seeing the amazing results that clients achieve whilst attending their regular Pilates sessions. We also enjoy empowering our clients with the knowledge and techniques to continue their practice at home. Your enthusiasm and smile bring joy to each session. “Fun” is certainly one of our core values, that we love to share. Our original business name, from 25 years ago, was “Fun & Fitness”.

They have skill and integrity.Response from the ownerSimeon, thanks very much for your generous endorsement and very long running support of our Pilates Can services here in Manuka. Wendy T.Wendy T. ★★★★★ I have been a participant at the Pilates Can for over 10 years and look forward to every class.

We appreciate your support over the many years. And we certainly agree that it is great fun to enjoy our collective sense of humour. Sally V.Sally V. ★★★★★ PilatesCan provides semi-private (max 4 clients to one instructor) sessions, which are tailored to what each client needs, on that day. It is not a pre-programmed session - the instructors seek feedback during the session to ensure the exercises are effective and address individual needs. Their understanding of body mechanics and the science behind movement is amazing. The studio is well equipped with a variety of pilates equipment which enables a constant variety of exercises. My experience as a client of over eight years has addressed lifelong complications from a childhood accident, plus addressing issues as they have arisen whilst a client. Very highly recommended.Response from the ownerSally, thank you, for your comprehensive and enriching review. Your determination to strive towards your optimal performance is motivating to us all. It is wonderful to partner with you on this journey and to experience the results with you. Rebecca B.Rebecca B. ★★★★★ Claire and the team are amazing.

Amanda S.Amanda S. ★★★★★ I have attended weekly Pilates Can sessions since 2015, initially to manage an overuse injury of my arm.Pilates Can’s unique approach quickly became a vital part of my ongoing health and exercise regime. Never boring, never the same as anyone else’s, my program is adjusted every session according to what my body needs that day. Without fail my body feels stronger and lighter after every session.

It is a most rewarding experience.Response from the ownerHelen, thanks very much for your lovely review and the trust you have shown in us over the years.It has been an absolute pleasure for us to work with and help you achieve such valuable results. Christine J.Christine J. ★★★★★ I highly recommend Pilates Can . I have been going there twice a week for the past seven years. The staff are all trained professionals and extremely knowledgeable in the physiology of the body. I have been injured several times and during that period my session is tailored to the injury for my recovery.I like that you are greeted each time with a smile and the atmosphere is uplifting. You can walk in tired but after a session with Studio Pilates you always walk out energised.The physical and health benefits of going to studio Pilates are not to be underestimated and I highly recommend Claire , and her team of instructors . Each bring a little something different . Love it .Arielle B.Arielle B. ★★★★★ As a physiotherapist I have some insight into the pilates scene - the staff here are well trained and highly knowledgeable of anatomy and exercise prescription. The staff are able to tailor semi-private/private services to each individual based on how they present to each session as well as longer term conditions. I have been a client of PilatesCan for over 6 years and truly recommend their services. Over the years I have had sessions with most (if not all) their staff and have always been happy with the quality of service provided. They have over the years assisted with management of back pain, calf pain, thoracic/cervical stiffness and pain, global strengthening and joint mobility, and have been able to adjust programs to target bone density. 11/10 recommend.Response from the ownerArielle, thanks so much for your wonderful review. Your unique perspective as a Physiotherapist, who has also been a client for the last 6 years, provides useful insight into the special services and solutions to mobility problems, via Pilates exercises, that we deliver at our Clinical Pilates studio, “Pilates Can” in Manuka. Thanks again Arielle. Me B.Me B. ★★★★★ Big gratitude to the wonderful team at Pilates Can Manuka for their expertise, attention to detail, dedication, empathy and good humour! Every class is a real delight and I am always looking forward to my next one.Response from the ownerThank you, Michael, for such an inspiring review. The energy and motivation that you bring to every session is enthusing. You add to the enjoyment for everyone. Katherine K.Katherine K. ★★★★★ I've been going to Pilates Can for over 15 years now, and they have helped me maintain and develop strength, flexibility, and mobility during and after pregnancy, injuries and illness. Doesn't matter whats going on with my body each week, they can modify the exercises to target the issue, or work around an injury. I always walk out feeling taller, stronger, and better. Can't recommend the personalised approach enough.Response from the ownerThanks, Katherine, for your heart-warming review. It has been amazing to have assisted you through your important life events. It is always fun & challenging to explore the best options for your body in each Pilates session. Catherine G.Catherine G. ★★★★★ I have been going to PilatesCan in Manuka for over 15 years. Now in my late 70s, I am fit and strong and physically in excellent health. And its all due to the wonderful trainers at PilatesCan. I have my own program which is updated as needed and attend a small private session there twice a week with 3 others. Turn up with a sore hip or foot and they work on that before anything else. I can’t imagine facing the years ahead without the support I get from Claire and Kirrily and Jenny.Response from the ownerThank you, Catherine, for such a glowing review. It is wonderful to be working with you and to assist you to develop a fit, strong body so you can enjoy life. We look forward to partnering with you for many more years. Jenna L.Jenna L. ★★★★★ Fantastic service. Excellent for pre and postnatal conditioning. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend.Response from the ownerThanks, Jenna, for your wonderful review. It has been a privilege to work with you during your pregnancy, and to continue to assist you with your postnatal strength and wellbeing. Your praise is particularly appreciated, given your important role in the medical community. Jan H.Jan H. ★★★★★ Pilatescan is for me a professionally run studio by Claire and her trained team. I am of an older age group and the personal attention to my strength and flexibility is excellent. I am challenged to improve at my own speed in a safe and supervised way. I have been with them 8 years now.Response from the ownerThank you, Jan, for your thoughtful 5-star review. Your enthusiasm and dedication are an inspiration to us all. It is wonderful to see the changes in your body and how Pilates assists you to enjoy all your other fun activities in life. David R.David R. ★★★★★ It is fair to say that for my wife and myself, Pilates Can has been a truly life-changing force for good. My wife Alayne started Pilates fourteen years ago here in Canberra. After many years of back problems and countless visits to a physiotherapist, she started Pilates as a means of better understanding and managing her own condition. After trying several studios, she settled on Pilates Can in Manuka. The exceptional knowledge, training and expertise of the instructors enabled them to tailor the Pilates exercises to suit her specific needs, based on her condition, strengths and weaknesses. As a result, my wife has not had to visit a physio since. I joined Pilates Can seven years ago and have always received the same professional standard of personalised instruction. Each of the instructors has demonstrated their expertise to us, often recognising that we are suffering from a particular condition even before we have mentioned it, and adapting each lesson to suit. The administrative staff have looked after our bookings and payments with consummate professionalism. We cannot recommend Pilates Can highly enough to anyone seeking help to improve, maintain or regain their health and wellbeing.Response from the ownerThank you so much, David, for your outstanding review. It is truly a pleasure, and a privilege, to assist you and Alayne to improve the strength and mobility in your bodies. The dedication that you both apply to your practice deserves in the magnificent changes that you have both achieved. We all enjoy the positivity and fun you both bring to each session. John M.John M. ★★★★★ I have attended Pilates Can Manuka for 8 years. The staff have a perfect knowledge of applying Pilates to the individual's specific needs, including the choice of machines. I cannot recommend highly enough.Response from the ownerThank you, John, for your 5-star review. It is lovely to have you in our studio and a pleasure to continually develop the best programs for your ongoing health and wellbeing. Reika C.Reika C. ★★★★★ Claire and her team of instructors are experienced, knowledgeable and passionate about Pilates. With the great help and joy that these instructors bring to every session, my muscular aches and pains have improved significantly over the years. I highly recommend trying out the sessions at Pilates Can.Response from the ownerThanks, Reika, for your enthusiastic review. Your zest for life is a positive influence on us all in our Pilates sessions. It is rewarding for us to explore new ways to assist your body to move pain free. Sue A.Sue A. ★★★★★ The Pilates Can Manuka team are amazing. Claire, Kirrilly and Susan have been looking after me for over ten years. I always leave my sessions feeling better. The staff are professional and highly qualified and the benefit of individual and small group classes can't be overstated. The studio and equipment are top of the line and the atmosphere is very welcoming and good fun. I would recommend the mat classes and studio sessions to anyone who needs help with specific issues or just to keep the body moving. Thank you!Response from the ownerThank you, Sue, for your wonderful review. It is uplifting to hear how much you enjoy the sessions and the benefits you have experienced, over the years, and continue to enjoy. Our aim is to provide the best professional services in a welcoming, safe, caring, and fun environment. Deborah D.Deborah D. ★★★★★ I have been attending a semi private class for several years now and can strongly recommend Pilates Can Manuka.The staff are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The exercises are tailored for me each week and are invaluable in keeping me moving and able to do the things I enjoy.The classes are social and enjoyable as well.Response from the ownerThank you, Deborah, for your 5-star review. It is wonderful to hear how much you enjoy the sessions and sharing them with our other amazing Pilates Can Manuka clients. Anna H.Anna H. ★★★★★ Pilates Can Manuka provide sessions tailored specifically to my needs. The instructors are highly trained, have many years of experience and have helped me to optimise my physical health in a way that I have never previously been able to achieve. I am so grateful for the expertise and guidance I have received, and I feel very comfortable attending classes. I wish I had made the decision to join years earlier; it has changed how my body feels, and how I feel about my body.Response from the ownerThank you, Anna, for your heartfelt review. The transformation in your body is truly inspiring. It is a joy to experience your enthusiasm, positivity, and dedication in Pilates sessions. It is particularly satisfying for us to hear your praise of our services, given your own professional work, assisting so many with their important health issues. Stephen S.Stephen S. ★★★★★ Mat work Pilates has been part of my weekly routine for more that 10 years. The instructors I have met at Pilates Can like David and Clayton and Claire have invariably been highly skilled and motivated people. The classes and general atmosphere are incredibly welcoming. As well as looking after my body and wellbeing I have made good friends there. The studio operates like a club where the culture is friendly and clients feel comfortable to chat with staff and with each other. I go to Pilates Can for general strength and fitness, and honestly because I enjoy the social interaction. My wife also went for a time to work specifically on a shoulder injury using reformers and other equipment and was very happy with improvement she was able to make with the assistance of Pilates Can’s experienced practitioners. I have no hesitation in recommending Pilates Can to friends.Response from the ownerStephen, thanks so much for your generous review. It has been a pleasure for us to have you join us in the Pilates Can studio in Manuka and online over the years. Your contributions in the sessions are both considerate and considerable. You even have a special Pilates Mat exercise named after you in our regular sessions. Thanks again Stephen for your valuable contribution to our unique culture of fun, fitness, mobility, and good Health. Kerry-Anne W.Kerry-Anne W. ★★★★★ I have been a client of Pilates Can for over eight years. Before joining PilatesCan I ‘tried” other Pilates studios and from those experiences I believe PilatesCan to be a superior studio where instructors apply the principles of Joseph Pilates encouraging clients to achieve optimum results physically and mentally. Clare (principal) and her team of qualified, experienced and positive instructors keep up-to-date with new and innovative practices of the Pilates methodology by attending regular workshops, conferences, and listening to relevant podcasts. Each client has an individually tailored exercised programme based on a thorough initial assessment of an individual’s mobility, strengths, stability and movement. Each programme is reviewed regularly and adapted to current needs. Pilates Can Manuka is a well equipped studio with a variety of “Pilates equipment” As a 70 year old client with multiple health issues I rely on the team at Pilates Can Manuka to “keep me moving and functional” as I navigate my “senior” years.Response from the ownerThank you, Kerry, for such a glowing review. We enjoy every minute assisting you in your continuing journey towards a healthier and stronger body. Your movement defies your age! It is fantastic that you found us. sandralauffsandralauff ★★★★★ Claire and the staff at Pilates Can Manuka are the 'real deal' with regard to providing the knowledgeable guidance for Pilates exercise and body usage. Their capacity to understand the nuanced skeletal-muscular functioning of the body and hold a systemic approach to dealing with pain and disfunction is of an incredibly high standard. My body and its comfortable capacity for movement are testimony to their knowledge and skill. I recommend them strongly.Response from the ownerThank you, Sandra, for your thoughtful review. It is great to hear how much you value the movement therapy benefits of your Pilates sessions and the overall impact it has on your body. It is always terrific to get such high praise from someone like yourself, who has been such a legend in the specialist area of assisting people to minimise pain via strength, mobility, and mindfulness. We really appreciate your praise, Sandra. Kathy O.Kathy O. ★★★★★ I can not recommend PilatesCan highly enough. The sessions are limited to a small group of people which allows the instructors to personalise the exercises to your needs. This also allows the instructors to keep an eye on you while you are exercising and alter the exercise (or just how you are doing it) to make sure you get the most out of the session. I do not doubt that without the support of the team at PilatesCan I would not have recovered as well as I have from a recent injury.Response from the ownerThank you, Kathy, for your wonderful review. It has been a privilege to walk beside you on your rehabilitation journey. Your recovery is a testament to your dedication and perseverance to overcome the challenges. Jennie R.Jennie R. ★★★★★ A very positive experience. Friendly and helpful staff. Every confidence that they are well trained and on top of their game. Have been attending PilatesCan classes for a long time. It helps keep my body mobile. Highly recommend.Response from the ownerThank you, Jennie, for your delightful endorsement. We greatly appreciate your involvement with us and look forward to keeping your body moving for many more years. Georgia M.Georgia M. ★★★★★ Pilates Can instructors are knowledgeable and skilled. They took the extra time to discuss my program with my physio and genuinely care about the outcomes I want from pilates.Response from the ownerThanks, Georgia, for your thoughtful review. It is wonderful to see your progress and to liaise with your physio to develop the best care for you. Heather K.Heather K. ★★★★★ Pilates Can Manuka provides personalised attention to every participant, whether in a group mat class or semi-private class. The instructors are all highly trained but also very caring for individual needs. This individual attention is not found elsewhere. I attend weekly group mat classes, but the groups are small and every week are designed for personal needs. This also brings great variety to the exercises, every class is different and fun. Throughout the week there are classes at different levels and with different instructors, so classes to suit everyone and all abilities. All the instructors are wonderful and bring variety in their approaches to the classes. My classes are usually with Claire who is so experienced and understands so much about every individual's body and needs, always providing alternatives and special treatment for each person. Her enthusiasm and cheerfulness is a great way to start Saturday mornings, as well as feeling good after a pilates session. The team have done a fantastic job in providing hybrid sessions with in-person and on-line options, and even adapting exercises to suit equipment at home. This was one of the most innovative and successful solutions to covid lockdowns that I encountered, so successful that it is continuing and people can join on-line from anywhere. I certainly congratulate and recommend the team at Pilates Can and encourage others to try for themselves and feel the difference.Response from the ownerThank you so much, Heather, for your glowing review. It is extremely gratifying to hear the many reasons why you enjoy, and appreciate, our personalised approach to each session. It is our privilege to deliver specialised Pilates sessions to our clients and to see the benefits they can reap from being as dedicated as you have been Heather. Your smile and enthusiasm on Saturday mornings is encouraging to us all. Justin K.Justin K. ★★★★★ Fantastic team who really know everything there is to know about pilates. They take the time to learn about your needs (and aches and pains) and tailor programs to each individual. No one size fits all approach.Response from the ownerThanks, Justin, for taking the time to give us this lovely review. It is a pleasure to assist you to move more freely, without pain, at each session, so you can better enjoy your many activities, including your fishing, hockey, and not forgetting your home repair work. Katherine G.Katherine G. ★★★★★ The team at Pilates Can are fantastic. They have kept me moving for more than 10 years. Their dedication and care is second to none. And their expertise is amazing! Every session is different and depends on what my body needs that day!Response from the ownerThank you, Katherine, for your 5-star review. It is very rewarding for us to have partnered with you, for over 10 years of clinical Pilates semi-private sessions, to achieve your mobility and strength goals. Denise M.Denise M. ★★★★★ I would like to tell you about my association.with Pilates Can Manuka . Ifirst went along 13 years ago. I had had an accident and had tried a number of things to improve my mobility. Over time at Pilates Can Manuka , I found not only had my mobility improved, but an improvement in my emotional wellbeing.The facility is well equiped with all the equipment and the staff are very knowledgeable keeping up all the latest techniques, very friendly and inclusive. I always look forward to my visits, and I leave feeling the extra movement she has given me.If I had not gone to Pilates Can Manuka when I did, I would barely be moving around now. my medical team are often surprised at what I can still do with my medical conditions.Response from the ownerThank you, Denise, for your review and sharing your experiences. Your determination to overcome health challenges, plus the positivity and enthusiasm you bring to every session, is motivational. Cosgrove S.Cosgrove S. ★★★★★ Amazing Pilates studio! I have been going to PilatesCan for 6 years and they are nothing short of amazing. They can fix aches and pains, straighten bodies increase mobility and release tight and stressed shoulders. The staff are dedicated and lovely not to mention highly skilled in helping their clients. The personal attention in the semi private classes is amazing and the mat classes are paced to the group and ability level. If you want strength, muscle tone and mobility this is the place for you!Response from the ownerThanks, Cosgrove, for your enthusiastic review. It is exciting to hear how much you enjoy all the sessions, in tandem with the positive impact on your health and wellbeing. sarah T.sarah T. ★★★★★ I started my first class with Pilates Can fours years ago and wish that I had discovered Claire and her wonderful team of instructors sooner. They have helped me with my movement and I always feel fantastic walking out from the classes.Absolutely the best in town!Response from the ownerThanks, Sarah, for your tremendous review. It is fun to see you how you master new challenges and continue to build your strength and mobility. We are glad that you found us. Helen S.Helen S. ★★★★★ Claire and her team have made such a difference to my well being. I have never been very athletic or enjoyed formal exercise but I look forward to my 2 sessions every week. The instructors are experts and well trained so they have devised a programme suited to my age and physical abilities. As well, at each session they can change the programme to address any issues I might be having on that day. The atmosphere is welcoming, inclusive and fun.Response from the ownerThank you, Helen, for your delightful review. Your enthusiasm and positivity make such a difference in our sessions. It is a pleasure to assist you on your health and wellbeing journey so you can enjoy life even more. Jenny H.Jenny H. ★★★★★ Excellent professional staff who tailor my program for my needs, and they always check how our bodies are working(or not!) before commencing the session to see what needs working on.Response from the ownerThank you, Jenny, for your excellent review. We are very thankful to hear how much you enjoy your sessions. Clare S.Clare S. ★★★★★ I started attending classes at PilatesCan to help me with constant and severe neck, shoulder and upper back pain. I am so happy to say that I am now pain free!!After trying physio, remedial massage, and osteopathic services to no avail, I was desperate for a solution to the constant pain.After a private session, Claire (owner) developed a program for me which included attending semi-private session in the Pilates rehab studio once a week. Every week the session is tailored to my specific requirements and pain level, to ensure I move forward in my recovery and not backward.This is not a cookie cutter, one size fits all, one instructor for 15 people studio! It is a studio full of exceptionally talented Pilates practitioners. Their attention, guidance and support have lifted me out of constant pain and have given me my life back.Response from the ownerThank you, Clare, for such a moving review. Your commitment is awe-inspiring. It is a privilege to work with you to assist you on your journey to recovery, to move without pain, and continue to build your strength and mobility. Joanna D.Joanna D. ★★★★★ I have been attending semi-private Pilates classes at this wonderful studio for 5 years! A friend recommended Pilates Can to help me with ongoing hip and lower back pain and I haven’t looked back!! Any niggle I have had since joining is managed with utmost care and expertise in the body and how it should move. I can’t thank the brilliant instructors enough for fixing the bursitis I developed in both my shoulders, which cortisone injections failed to fix!! I continue to go to my class every week for body maintenance. It keeps me fit and strong and pain free! Thank you Pilates Can.Response from the ownerThank you, Jo, for your amazing review. You inspire us, as you are such a fun, lively person in our sessions. It is gratifying to see how much you can do now in your sessions and in all the activities you enjoy in life. Kate S.Kate S. ★★★★★ Great instructors that provide individual attention tailored to clients. I love that there’s only 4 clients per class.Response from the ownerThanks, Kate, for your 5-star review. Yes, having a maximum of 4 clients per instructor allows us to personalise everyone’s written program and individual sessions. It is wonderful to hear how much you enjoy and appreciate this extra effort we go to so that everyone can get the most out of their sessions. Jennifer H.Jennifer H. ★★★★★ I am forever grateful for the recommendation that brought me to Pilates Can and highly recommend this studio to anyone seeking a quality and individualised experience. As a person in their 60s with hypermobility issues I have often found that 'one size does not fit all' in terms of movement classes. Not the case with Pilates Can semi private sessions! Over the past 5 years I have consistently found the knowledge, expertise and care of Clare and her team at Pilates Can to be something I can rely on to address the needs of my body at any session I attend. Over the years [and with the interruption of major surgery] I have experienced a steady increase in strength, balance, stamina and posture all of which supports my overall health as I age. Thank you Pilates Can!Response from the ownerThank you, Jenny, for such a heartfelt review. You have made amazing changes over the years, achieved via your own continued dedication to your health and wellbeing. You have been a wonderful partner with us in this process, where you have proven what can be done. It is fantastic for us to have witnessed those incremental changes and to have been instrumental in assisting you with those. Catherine S.Catherine S. ★★★★★ Pilates Can are life savers. I have been seeing Claire and the team for 12 years and they’ve put me back together again a thousand times. This is the true Pilates experience, full of care and knowledge, and a genuine desire to have every single client feeling the best they can be. Whether you are a seasoned athlete, a pre or post natal mum or someone working their way back from injury, Pilates Can are the best.Response from the ownerThank you, Cat, for your magnificent review. You have captured the essence of exactly what we have worked so hard to build up over the last 25 years. It is a privilege and pleasure to assist you, and all our clients, to feel the best they can in, and after, every session. Paula I.Paula I. ★★★★★ I have been a client of Pilates Can Manuka for approximately 6 months. I wish I had discovered them earlier. I have benefitted greatly in mind and body from my time spent with the highly qualified, and caring instructors at Pilates Can Manuka. I have always felt confident that my safety and wellbeing was of paramount importance to the instructors when doing any of the activities that I have participated in. Pilates Can Manuka is a very professionally run organisation that has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and I always look forward to attending my sessions at their studio.Response from the ownerThank you, Paula, for your kind review. It is wonderful that you are experiencing so many benefits and that you enjoy your time in our studio. Yvonne P.Yvonne P. ★★★★★ Having experienced significant health and wellbeing outcomes from our small group, large equipment based Pilates in South Australia, we prioritised finding the right studio to continue our Pilates journey when we moved to Canberra nearly ten years ago, at the age of 70. There is an old saying, ‘The proof of the pudding is in the eating.’ You have to try the pudding to determine if it is any good. Similarly with Pilates. The proof of a pilates program is in the experience. We had high expectations. We had come to expect: an individualised program utilising all of the large equipment, (not just a room of reformers), a highly knowledgeable professional team with the flexibility to be able to modify and adapt a program when close observation and attention to the individual’s needs warranted. It took a few months to finally discover Claire and the team at PilatesCan. Our expectations have been surpassed through the exceptional programs developed for us. Whatever challenges we present : chronic arthritis, scoliosis, fractures associated with osteoporosis, preparation for and rehabilitation after bilateral knee surgery, rehabilitation after mini stroke, after effects of trips and falls, Claire and the team have proven their expertise and depth of clinical experience to provide individualised programs of the highest professional calibre for both of us since early in 2015. We look forward to our continuing association.Y & A PaullResponse from the ownerThank you, Yvonne, for your comprehensive review.

I love the way Pilates focuses on every muscle and forces me to slow down and pay attention to every exercise. It has built my body awareness and core strength and has assisted me to become much better at all other forms of exercise such as running.  The teachers are relaxed and enthusiastic and I always feel as though they are focusing on my individual needs and pushing me to achieve a little bit more at each session.

The trainers were enthusiastic and encouraging and spoke to me about my goals and how to achieve them. They offered support and advice on nutrition as well as the physical aspect of the training sessions. Before I knew it I was losing weight, getting fitter and really looking forward to each session. I’ve been coming to small group training sessions for seven months now, and I feel great.

They nudged but never nagged. They know that body health is linked to emotional wellbeing and that motivation needs to be encouraged not bullied out of people. They have been consistent supports when I have been fit, had minor injuries or long-term physical adjustments that needed to be made. I see them as a long-term partner in my physical and emotional health: flexible, reliable, accepting and highly professional
