Modern Pilates

One of Sydney's premiere Pilates studios


Classes with Modern Pilates

We offer two different types of classes:

Studio sessions have a maximum of 4 clients, and use the mats, reformer beds, trap tables and pilates equipment. Book online here

Mat-classes are for clients who are injury-free. Book online here

Both classes are suitable for beginners or for people with more pilates experience.

Information for all sessions:

All sessions are by appointment only. To book appointments please follow the link below or call 9437 6588.  Please wear suitable clothing e.g. t-shirt, bike pants, active wear or a tracksuit, and bring a small towel to rest your head on. It is compulsory to remove your shoes and wear fresh socks in class.

Clients who attend our studio for a small group session will have two private sessions initially.  During these private sessions we will take a full movement and health history (Initial Assessment) and find out what your goals are for coming to pilates.  During these private sessions we will tailor a program specifically focussing on your individual movement needs. 

Please call the Studio to book an Initial Assessment – we can organise a time to suit you.

Studio sessions are available as single classes, monthly passes or in blocks of ten sessions, to be used within a certain period of time. Student and pensioner discounts are available.

Mat classes are suitable for anyone who is injury free. They are conducted in small groups and are graded from basic to advanced. The Basic level provides a safe introduction to Pilates and leads on to more challenging Intermediate and Advanced work. Currently, due to physical distancing guidelines, classes are kept to a maximum of 6 per class, ensuring that you will always receive the right amount of attention from your instructor.  Our Mat classes can be taken face-to-face in the studio, or virtually via Zoom.  Click on the bookings link to see when the classes run, or call us at the studio.

I have been attending classes weekly at Modern Pilates in St Leonards, NSW for over five years. I enjoy classes very much. The management of the practice is very good and is user friendly. The premises are well laid out and always spotlessly clean. The equipment, stationary and mobile, is excellent and well suited for its purposes. Over the years, I have exercised under four long term instructors, all of whom were and are well trained and qualified, diligent, competent and friendly. At least one of the other students in my class has been in same class with me for all this period. I find my weekly attendance to be a happy social event as well as a good fitness operation.
I am now ninety-four years of age and find all my strenuous exercises within my competence. I would not for the world miss my weekly session at Modern Pilates.
