What Pilates Can
do for you?

Pilates has a long history of helping clients improve their flexibility, posture and strength. The principles of Pilates are breath, concentration control, centre, flow, precision, alignment, and commitment.

Injury Rehabilitation

Pilates has proven rehabilitation benefits, including correct spinal and pelvic alignment, increasing joint movement, regaining movement after injury, increased body awareness and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries.


Pilates can build flexibility, muscle strength and tone,  in a gentle, precise, and balanced way. The Pilates Can studios offers an inclusive environment where clients can come to improve their movement health to feel relaxed and revitalized while taking their body to the next level.

The Pilates Can Model

Since opening our first commercial Pilates studio in 2004, we have become one of the most successful Pilates businesses in Canberra-- and still growing! We now operate in two studios as well as our online services.

Our studio Pilates sessions offered in our Woden and Manuka studios, deliver over 1000 Pilates bookings every month in Canberra. Studio Pilates sessions are perfect for Canberra residents looking to try, or develop, their ‘healing’ or ‘healthy’ Pilates practice. Our studios include a range of Pilates equipment for supervised, group, semi-private and private sessions.

Whether in-studio or online, the Pilates Can model is built on skills, connection and caring. By combining expertise in Pilates practice, with honest, caring and fun relationships, we provide a holistic Pilates experience consistent with the world’s best practice. Our clients keep coming back, week after week and year after year, because they achieve wonderful physical results and genuinely enjoy the whole process. 

Our instructors aim to empower clients to develop greater control of their physical movement and wellbeing, to benefit their life beyond their time in our studio.

At Pilates Can, Pilates is a fun and social experience for participants of any level looking to improve their health and well being.

The program is structured to suit my personal needs!

I like the semi-private lessons as the groups are small, there is plenty of room in the studio and the program is structured to suit my personal needs. I am reassured that an instructor is always there to monitor what I do to ensure that I am doing things correctly and in a safe manner. The admin staff have also been helpful particularly during the transition to on-line sessions. My thanks to the Pilates Team for doing such a great job!

Great instructors, very helpful support staff!

I’d been doing Pilates for several years overseas and when returned to Canberra almost five years ago and started to look for a good studio, Pilates Can was recommended to me. I regarded mat and equipment classes as essential to keeping earlier back pain at bay.

Better core strength, breathing and balance and the ability to work on and fix small aches and pains before they become bigger problems

Close interest in clients and amazing commitment during COVID-19.

Outstanding Instructor! I can draw on the experience and knowledge of Claire

I find the individual attention in my own environment of great value and I find the lessons to have helped considerably in maintaining a level of fitness together with remedial action on some particular problems that I have been encountering. The main advantage of the present arrangement is that I can draw on the experience and knowledge of Claire who I find to be an outstanding instructor.
