We are a fully equipped Pilates studio, and we’re excited to be the first in New Zealand to feature the amazing and innovative BASI System equipment – including Reformers, Wunda Chairs, Cadillac, Arm Chair Barrel Set, and Spine Correctors.
We’re also proud to teach the BASI Pilates method. Founded by Rael Isacowitz, BASI is one of the world’s leading Pilates education academies. BASI stands for Body Arts and Science International, which reflects the BASI approach to Pilates – a true blending of the art and science of human movement.
We are all about making you feel strong and amazing in your body, so we focus on small classes to make sure you get plenty of attention and get real results when you come to us.
We are passionate about helping people discover the incredible benefits of Pilates. Whether you’ve been doing Pilates for years or you’ve never tried before, stop in and see us!
