Discover Pilates® Classes and fees:
Discover Pilates® specialises in equipment-based, small-group Pilates classes. To ensure excellent results for our students we tailor each session to the needs and goals of the individuals, and limit each class to 4 participants. Students may 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 classes are 1hr in duration and bookings are essential.
Studio Pilates classes are held at set times throughout the week, cost $44 per class per student (if paid for casually), or $40 per class per student if the student purchases a block of 10 classes ($400).
Studio Pilates classes are held on Mondays at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm, Tuesdays at 10am, 11am, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm, Wednesdays at 10am, 11am, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm, Thursdays 5pm, 6pm and 7pm, Fridays at 10am, 11am, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm and Saturdays at 8am, 9am, 10am and 12 midday.
Private Pilates classes may be booked at any time outside of our Studio Pilates class timetable (subject to instructor availability). Private class fees vary depending on 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 the quality of each class, student numbers are limited to 4-5 (for both private classes and studio classes), and each student must attend an initial consultation (a 1 on 1 private class) at which your instructor will discuss with you your needs and goals.

How to get started:
From experience we know that regardless of your reasons for commencing Pilates, if learn the basics really really well you’ll achieve better results. That’s why we insist that every new student attends a 30 minute, 1 on 1 initial consultation at which your instructor will discuss with you your needs and goals and either teach you the basics (if you are new to Pilates) or or assess where you’re up to (if you’ve done Pilates before). The initial consult is $50.
All Pilates bookings are made via Ryde Natural Health Clinic’s reception desk, so to book your initial consultation call clinic reception on 9878 5021 and ask to book a ‘Pilates initial consultation’.
For your first class, aim to arrive ten minutes early to to complete some paperwork. You should wear comfortable exercise clothing that lets you move freely, and bring a pair of clean socks with you to wear during the session. Change rooms are available for your use if required.
We look forward to meeting you : )
