Welcome...

you've found The home of true pilates in the macedon ranges 

Proper Pilates is an Australian leading Classical Pilates centre dedicated to the most authentic form of Pilates delivery.  All Pilates is not the same, and we are the only studio in the Macedon Ranges that can lay claim to this level of authenticity.  This means over time, through commitment to continual and focused practice, our method can promise you a total body workout that builds strength, stamina, cardiovascular fitness, and mobility.  Only Classical Pilates truly accomplishes these things combined.

No to classes, yes to individuals- proper Pilates should grow you to be independent in your training, and should reach your specific needs, not treat you the same as everyone else exercising in the room.  At Proper Pilates we do this through continued one to one training and our Open Haus workouts which develop self practice.  How do we work?

Our Practitioners are experienced within two to three generations of Joseph Pilates, through the lineage of Pilates Elder Jay Grimes, ensuring that the work is maintained with accuracy and respect.  We are the only studio in the region to be able to lay claim to this link to origin.  Unlike in large class-based studios where teachers are only required to pass through weekend certifications, our teachers are comprehensively trained with years of mastery and international mentorship to our names.  Further, our studio Directors are certified in allied practices such as Dance, Education and Sports Science at tertiary levels.   Learn more...

For instructors we provide an important training base that delivers mentorship opportunities and workshops aimed to improve mastery in both practice and teaching.  If you're a teacher, Read on...
