Discover Pilates® near Macquarie Park

Do you want to start Pilates near Macquarie Park? Just a few minutes from Macquarie Park, here at Discover Pilates®, we specialise in equipment-based, small-group Pilates classes. We get excellent results for our students because we tailor each session to the needs and goals of each individual, and we limit each class to a maximum of 4-5 participants. Our students can book a class at a time that suits them (what we call a ‘Private Pilates class’), or join one of our timetabled small-group classes (what we call a ‘Studio class’). All our classes are 1 hour in duration and bookings are essential.

Classes and fees:

Studio Pilates classes are held at set times throughout the week, and cost $44 per class per student (if paid for casually), or $40 per class per student if a block of 10 classes ($400) is purchased.

Private Pilates classes may be booked at any time outside of our Studio Pilates class timetable (subject to instructor availability). Private class fees are dependent upon the number of students in your group: $90 per class for a 1 on 1 private class, $130 per class for 2 students ($65 each), $150 for 3 students ($50 each), or $160 for 4 students ($40 each).

To ensure maximum quality of each class, our student numbers are limited to 4-5 (for both private classes and studio classes), and each student must attend an introductory  initial consultation (a 1 on 1 private class) during which your instructor will discuss with you your needs and goals.

How to get started:

When it comes to Pilates, regardless of your reasons for commencing, experience shows that if learn the basics really well you’ll achieve better results i the long term. That’s why we insist that every new client attends a 30 minute, 1 on 1 initial consultation during which your instructor will discuss with you your needs and goals and teach you the basics (if you’re new to Pilates) or assess what you already know (if you’ve done Pilates before). This initial consult is $50.

For your first class, it’s important to arrive a few minutes early to complete some paperwork when you arrive. You should wear comfortable exercise clothing that lets you move around freely, and bring a pair of clean socks with you to wear during the session. Change rooms are available for your use if needed.

All our Pilates bookings are made through Ryde Natural Health Clinic’s reception desk. To book your initial consultation call the clinic reception on 9878 5021 and ask to book a ‘Pilates initial consultation’.We look forward to meeting you : )
