Exercise Therapy: Yoga & Pilates
Movement is Medicine. Our range of classes are designed to meet you where you are and help you maintain and then improve the way you move. We offer three main types of classes:
- Group Physiotherapy
From April 2020 we will be designating Class Levels to help you find the right class for you.
The PhysiYoga Class Difference
Our therapeutic exercise classes are designed for you to strengthen your body and improve the ease in which you move. We have a range of small group (maximum 4-5 people) to moderate size mat classes (10-12 people).
For purposes of our class passes, we categorize our classes into two class types:
- Mat Classes (Mat Pilates & Yoga)
- Small Group (Group Physiotherapy, Equipment Pilates)
Pilates & Yoga
- We Mat Pilates & Yoga are classified as “mat classes” and are on the same class pass format.
- You can attend either casually or purchase a class pass for increased value and ease (starting the Group Physiotherapy classes requires an initial consult).
- Mat classes are run by Physiotherapists, an exercise physiologist or Yoga Teachers.
- Classes are maxed out at 12 participants.
All levels available – check specific class details.
We offer a range of Yoga classes from the slow, meditative Yin Yoga to the faster and more dynamic Vinyasa Flow classes. (See the current range of classes and a full description on our Timetables page).
We are introducing our PhysiYoga Foundation Sequence which utilizes a range of yoga postures for a full body stretch and strengthening session.
Pilates helps us to understand and practice great posture and how to effectively activate our core muscles. It builds fundamental strength that protects us from overuse and overload injuries. Variations are given within the class to cater for a wide variety of needs. Our class instructors are skilled and experience professionals and aim to find the balance between keeping you moving well and feeling like you’ve worked hard enough to feel the benefits.
Mat classes are great because the exercises use minimal or no equipment and you can do them at home.
Mat Pilates: what to expect
- You need to be able to get on and off the floor, as all exercises are done on the mat.
- There are a maximum of 10-12 people per class following a general program specifically designed for that group, but which can be skillfully modified to different needs and challenges.
- Classes are run by a Physiotherapist or well trained Pilates Instructor.
- Our classes differ in their challenge levels from basic to advanced.

These classes are the best place to start as the equipment gives your body more support while presenting a variety of demands. These exercise classes are based around our range of Allegro Reformers and Balanced Body equipment as well as weights and resistance apparatus to support and challenge you at the appropriate level. Formerly called “Equipment Pilates” the exercises in these classes are designed 100% for your individual needs on a case by case basis.
Available to clients once they have completed at least one 10-class pass. By this stage you might be comfortable enough with your program so you can book in to use our beautiful studio and equipment for an hour to complete your program independently. This is a very cost effective way to still gain benefits from Pilates. Why not book into the monthly equipment class or have a Pilates Consult with your Physiotherapist to review your program and keep you challenged?
