Tell us about Breathe Pilates Studio, where did it all begin?
Breathe Pilates Studio is a boutique Pilates studio offering both Reformer and Mat work Pilates. I started with my flagship studio in Wangara in 2015 and recently opened my second studio in Clarkson. I have always had a passion for health and fitness and I absolutely loved Pilates. I had always thought about being an instructor so at the end of 2014 I decided to bite the bullet and enroll to do my Diploma and it was the best decision I ever made!! I completed my qualifications and straight away opened the studio so it was a very big risk for me being a new instructor but I am so glad I took that risk!
What three words would you use to describe your studio?
Vibrant, Welcoming and Fun. We aim to create a family-vibe to the studio and always like to have a bit of fun in our classes.
What do you love most about Pilates?
Where do I start?? I love the way it makes me feel. I can be having the worst day and the minute I step into a Pilates class all of that ‘noise’ in my head goes away and I instantly feel amazing. I love that it a holistic workout and you feel so much more balanced in your mind and body.
What’s the biggest reward in running your own studio?
Seeing how much my clients love their classes and seeing the changes in not only their body’s but their mindset as well.
How is your studio different to other Studios in your area?
For us it is all about client experience. We make a huge effort to take the time to make each and every client feel welcome. We keep our classes small so each client feels like they get the attention they need during class. We pride ourselves on creating our own little family like community at the studio. That extra personal touch is what sets us apart….not to mention all of my instructors are bloody awesome at what they do!
How many different classes do you offer and which one is the most popular?
We have a huge range of classes – we offer Reformer, Matwork, Barre, Boxilates, Stretch and Mobiltiy classes, Pregnancy, Post Natal, Cardio Reformer and Matwork variations plus our own exclusive classes Core Burner and Booty Burner. I would say our Reformer classes are the most popular.
What's your favourite class that you offer and why?
I can’t choose!! Probably Boxilates because it blends my two favourite things – Boxing and Pilates.
Do you offer one on one classes as well as group classes?
We offer both. Our group classes are kept small and we also have private sessions available for those wanting a more specified program.
Where do you see your studio in the next 5 years?
I would love to see both studios thriving and evolving. I would love to create an online space to connect with our clients.
Whats the best advice you would give someone who's a little hesitant to try Pilates for the first time?
Call and chat to an instructor or the owner at the studio you wish to attend. All of us here are always happy to answer any questions and advise on where to start if you’re feeling a little nervous about coming in.
