Canberra: a city famous for its closeness and work-life balance. Though with 50% of its workforce employed by the public service, it can be easy to let work take over. Thus it is important to find time for yourself, to unwind and relieve the stresses of the day. Pilates in Canberra is a lifestyle choice you could certainly benefit from. Due to Canberra’s small size, taking an hour each week for you is easy.

Canberra, a small metropolitan city surrounded by bushland, benefits from a 20 minute drive radius. With PilatesCan located centrally in Manuka, we provide our clients with the convenience of a Pilates workout on your doorstep. Why not take advantage of the Canberra lifestyle to drop by after work for a session? After a few weeks, your body will thank you for it.


What is Pilates

Developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a physical method which uses special apparatus to stretch and re-balance muscles in the body. Pilates developed eight core principles based around the idea of muscle control, with the view to reduce pain and increase functionality in the body. As we use our muscles every, day it is important to move them in an efficient and functional way. Often these daily activities put our muscles under considerable strain because we don’t know the correct way to use them.

With a range of exercises undertaken using special Pilates equipment and guided instruction, Pilates helps  strengthen core muscles and provides balance to the body. This is done through a range of exercises using specialised Pilates equipment and guided instruction. As such, it takes you on a lifestyle journey of sustainable physical education.
