Welcome to Melbourne Pilates Method Studio (MPMS)

We teach the Classical and Authentic Pilates Method

                             and teach the Original Lineage of Joseph Pilates' work known as 'Contrology'   


                        Pilates has become very popular in recent years as the new trend in exercise, and using the name 'Pilates' is open to everyone and is not always regulated. 

Did you know there are different types of Pilates? Contemporary Pilates in franchised studios and in the fitness industry with large group classes on an apparatus without the precision and the integrity, as well as Clinical Pilates taught by a physio that are both VERY different to Joseph Pilates' Original work.

 If you feel that you deserve more attention and understanding about your body to enable you to feel longer, leaner and healthier and possibly pain free in your life then this is the Studio for you, we are boutique offering one-on-one private,  duo lessons, Semi-private Reformer Flow Classes and Mat Classes

At MPMS we are dedicated to teaching the physical art of Classical Pilates which is also known as the traditional/authentic method Classical Pilates training is defined by The Pilates Method, the system of exercises created by Joseph Pilates, which were based on his extensive studies in anatomy and training in martial arts, boxing, fencing and acrobatics. The Pilates Method co-ordinates the “Mind and Body” leaving you feeling strong and energised. 

The Studio is beautifully equipped with apparatus constructed by Gratz. There is only one Pilates and you have found it! 

Our studio is owned and run by leading Romana’s Pilates Method Instructors who trained under Romana who have over 20 years of Classical Pilates teaching experience both in Australia and abroad.
