About Us

Welcome to Melbourne Pilates Method Studio (MPMS).

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. There are different types of Pilates, both Contemporary Pilates in the fitness industry and Clinical Pilates.

At MPMS we are dedicated to teaching the physical art of True Pilates which is also known as the traditional/classical method. True 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.

Our studio is owned and run by leading Romana’s Pilates Method Instructors who trained under Romana who have over 17 years of True Pilates teaching experience both in Australia and abroad. At MPMS we pride ourselves on teaching the true definition of Romana’s Pilates. We have direct lineage with Joseph Pilates as second generation teachers. Taught from Romana and Cynthia we teach with integrity and the way Pilates should be taught!

Our master trainer in Australia is Cynthia Lochard Level 1 at Pilates Method Studio Sydney who trained in New York under the guidance of her teacher and mentor Romana Kryzanowska. For more information about Romana visit her website Romana’s Pilates USA and for more information about True Pilates NYC.
