The Best Pilates Studio In Belconnen


Pilates is a world-renowned exercise regime that focuses on building core strength, improving alignment, increasing flexibility, and supporting an overall healthy lifestyle. Pilates is suitable for people of all ages and all fitness levels.

If you are looking to give Pilates a try, you’ve come to the right place. We asked Belconnen’s locals to share their favourite Pilates studios, and now the results are in. So, without further ado, let’s get started.

What makes an excellent Pilates studio?

Whether you’re new to Pilates or an experienced practitioner, sometimes it can be difficult to know what to look for when trying out a new studio. We suggest keeping an eye out for the following traits:

  • Experienced, passionate teaches. Pilates is a highly specialised exercise program that takes years of practice and theoretical knowledge to master. Look for a studio that’s run by passionate, experienced teachers.
  • Welcoming atmosphere. Pilates is for everybody, not just the super-fit. If you have never tried Pilates before, try a studio with a welcoming atmosphere that supports students from all walks of life.
  • Fair pricing. Opt for Pilates classes that charge a reasonable rate. If you plan on attending more than one or two classes a week, find a studio that offers bulk discounts or weekly rates.
  • Convenient location and timetable. If it’s not easy, you probably won’t do it. The best Pilates studio for you is one that’s in close proximity to home or work and hosts classes at a time that suits your busy schedule.

I think Club Lime in Belconnen have Pilates Groups and you can pay a casual entry fee instead of a membership.

Canberra Dance Theatre, over near ANU, (type it into google for the website) have a pilates class, they tend to be on the pricey side though.

ANU gym runs a number of “hybrid” classes which you can attend casually, and even if you end up joining it is still pretty cheap. (Their list of people who can join is really open, basically you just have to claim to have been to an Australian uni at some point in your life I think). I really like the Les Mills Body Balance classes, they are a mixture of tai chi, pilates, and yoga, and I find them a little more interesting than straight yoga, which starts to bore me after more than a few lessons.

There is yoga at Turner Seniors Centre on Tuesday nights at 6.00 – you don’t have to be a senior either, but it is like stepping back in time to about the 50s in there.

Don’t know if it’s still too far south, but I can recommend Life Personal Fitness at Kingston.

I started going there for gym sessions when I was preparing to hike the Inca trail – I survived the Inca trail, a lot of which I put down to the training. Since returning my goals changed so I do a gym session and a Pilates session each week. Sessions are pretty small, typically no more than 5 people and a programme made up for you personally.

My housemate goes to the Bradden mob:

They have intensive courses and all kinds of stuff from what I can understand.

Call Despina as she is really into it.

astrojax astrojax 5:20 pm 09 Feb 09

mrs astro just started a yoga class in miller st, but only because the school in lonsdale street near cornucopia’s times didn’t quite work with her hectic schedule ; ) they seemed ‘quite good’, was the report

– and i’d suggest otherwise you consider the posture and flexibility classes, through anu sports union. can’t recommend them highly enough.

I go to Yoga Mandir in Braddon and it’s excellent! They like you to enrol in a whole term but you can go along to one of their open sessions to see if you like it first.

I also hear there’s an excellent pilates place in civic somewhere, but I can’t remember exactly where it was. Sorry that’s quite unhelpful.

But if you decide to give yoga a go I can recommend Yoga Mandir
