Enrolments are now open for our next course starting 6th June
by the end of this course
and not just a beginners Pilates class?
This 6 week course will teach you all you need to know to understand Pilates and how it can work for your body. We'll break it down, move consciously and make it easy to understand.
We also cover in detail the correct starting positions, breathing and the Pilates breath, and the correct way to activate your abdominals.
Understanding the basic lessons of Pilates will help you feel the connection and get the most out of your workouts and give you confidence to go on and join group classes.
Each week you will receive a brief tutorial and mini Pilates workout based on our focus for that week. By week 6 you will be ready for a full Pilates class, putting everything we've learned together.
Week 1: Begin
Let's begin...a brief history of Joseph Pilates and a mini workout based around his original movements.
Week 2: Discover
Why do we need Pilates? We focus on our poor posture habits and techniques we have fallen into and our mini workout will show how we use Pilates to counteract these.
Week 3: Connect
How do we do Pilates? We talk about our whole core (it’s not just our abs!) and learn the correct technique to “switch on” our abdominals, back and bottom muscles.
Week 4: Align
We will discover exactly what our “neutral spine” is (don’t worry if you have never heard this term) and how to place our body in it’s correct starting position before we move in each different position.
Week 5: Breathe
Despite doing it without thinking, when we focus on it, breathing can be confusing! We talk about the Pilates breath, how it doesn’t really matter which way you are breathing, as long as you don’t hold your breath and ways that breathing can help with movement.
Week 6: Move
After five weeks of our mini Pilates workouts, it’s time to put it all together into one big, 40 minute Pilates class (hint: you can still work at your own pace and do the class over two days!).
You'll get 6 tutorials and 6 Pilates workouts PLUS our Pilates 101 e-book and full access to our Online Studio mat classes (worth $28).
I want to tell you
how I discovered
I was introduced to it by a physio when I was working in London as a Personal Trainer. Part of my job required me to stretch between 5-10 clients everyday after taking them through their workout sessions. This took a toll on my body and lots of the smaller muscles started tearing. I wasn't 'using my core'.
At first this didn't make much sense to me but after I started doing Pilates classes regularly, I learnt how to distribute the strength differently within my body, reducing injuries and increasing my strength and efficiency.
This was AMAZING to me, I had a real 'A-HA' moment where everything came together and just made sense, thus my love of Pilates was born.
This is what I hope to give you with this course...that moment where it all just clicks and you really understand what Pilates is all about!
What you get in my
Pilates 101 course
The Pilates basics
We go back to basics to show you the roots of Pilates to gain a true understanding of the connection between movement and your body. Choose between Mat, Reformer or Pre/Postnatal versions.
I will teach you everything I know that works from my 20 years experience teaching Pilates. This means you get some great information you wouldn't get in a Beginners Pilates class.
Scheduled lesson delivery
You will be given a new video every week, rather than all at once, so you aren't overwhelmed with the content. This allows you to take in all you are learning and apply it before moving on.
I've got your back
I'm with you the whole 6 weeks. This course is designed with limited places so I can be there for everyone. I'll always be on hand to answer any questions and help you.
Access to Online studio
Get instant membership to our Online Studio, (worth $28) including over 100 videos & all future updates! You can pick a class anytime and do it in the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you.
You get access to our Facebook community group where there are like-minded people to encourage, support and share stories

How does Pilates 101 work?
Our Pilates 101 course is the perfect place to start your Pilates journey or refresh your knowledge. It is an 6 week course offered at different times throughout the year. You are provided with information, step by step videos and access to the Online Studio, with over 100+ workouts, to increase your knowledge by starting at the beginning. Choose either Mat, Reformer or Pre/Post Natal versions.
When is the next Pilates 101 course?
To find out when the next Pilates 101 course is due to begin, see information on this page. We only offer this course a few times a year to ensure that we can provide one-on-one support to those who need it, so jump on the waitlist to avoid missing out.
I can't complete the program in 6 weeks
We encourage everyone to join in together over the 6 weeks as you will form your own Pilates community through our Facebook group, and have access to us for the entirety of the program. It's fun to work and learn together but you will always have lifetime access to the course content so you can still work at your own pace and in your own time.
Do I have full access?
Absolutely. You will get full access to all the workouts and content, along with any updates and new content that become available over time.
Do I need equipment?
All you need is a Pilates mat and a device to access the online course content. (phone/tablet/laptop/smart TV). If you choose the Reformer version, you need your own Reformer and a device.
Is Pilates 101 program for Mat only?
Our Pilates 101 program offers three versions, one for Mat Pilates, one for Reformer Pilates and one for Pre/Post Natal. They do vary quite a lot in information so it's recommended that you do both if you own a Reformer.
I have injuries, can I still do the classes?
Yes. Although it depends on the nature of your injury. It's always advisable to seek clearance from your practitioner before engaging in any form of exercise after injury. Alternatively, you can email or call us and we will help you with your best options.
Do you offer refunds?
The purchase of your course gives you instant access to all the information and course content so we are unable to offer refunds. You are able to transfer your purchase to the next course date up until a week before the start of your course.
