Proper Pilates Open haus Training system
Joe Pilates wanted you to visit his studio at least 3 times per week, and that's what our Open Haus system gets you doing. For an experience just like the original studio in New York, and indeed a Classical Pilates experience not available elsewhere in Australia, our Open Haus system offers you a hook into true Contrology practice.
After completing your Introductory Package you'll be able to enter into our studio's group training system, Open Haus. Each calendar month's training cost is $400, and allows you unlimited visits to the studio. When a regular Open Haus client is going away, we happily pro rata down a package for the weeks in the month they will be able to attend sessions.
The Contrology Package
$400 Per Month
UNLIMITED Open Haus Visits!
Free to book as many visits per day as you like
Maximum of 6 clients to 1 trainer at a time in every session
Book Private lessons separately, if you want, when you want
The most immersive Contrology experience you will find- anywhere- designed to make you a truly strong, empowered, and independent practitioner
If you really make use of it, you won't find better priced, true studio Pilates
Private Lessons are the perfect alternative for clients who aren’t able to make it into the studio often, and want to learn how to build a practice for home/travel. These can also be used in addition to Open Haus Packages if you'd like to boost your Private tuition. 10 Packs of Private Lessons expire strictly in 12 weeks.

FOR PILATES TEACHERS
Visiting certified Classical Pilates teachers may be allowed to purchase visits to Open Haus sessions however you must first complete at least one 55 minute Private assessment with a member of staff, after which we will advise you of your readiness. Teachers new to Classical Pilates must first take our Introductory Package.
Once approved you can purchase and book into casual Open Haus sessions. Double and Triple session passes are also available at a discount, however all sessions must be used within 24 hours- these are geared for visiting teachers who want to maximise their workout time at the studio. To book your assessment you must purchase and schedule a 55 minute Private Lesson, the link for which is above, or if new to Classical contact the studio to book an Introductory Package.
Health Insurance Rebates
Certain health insurance providers give some level of reimbursement to clients for Allied Health purchases. It's important that if this is necessary for you to ensure your ongoing commitment to Pilates that you speak directly with your provider to ascertain your coverage benefits. From 2019 Federal regulatory changes will mean rebates for a number of allied health practices, including Pilates, will no longer be legal issue through private health insurers. So ultimately it is best to establish a practice with a studio you see yourself working well in, and being able to afford to continue practice with.
Generally speaking most providers now only cover Clinical Pilates- which is exercise taken at a Physiotherapy (or similar) practice. Proper Pilates certainly believes in effective Clinical training, however it should result in specific and positive outcomes over shorter periods, beyond which clients should be moved on to professionals who are experienced in progressive Pilates training.
It is important to note that Clinical providers are exceptional in the provision of clinical care in instances of acute pain or specific and chronic decondition, however in most cases their Pilates training has been undertaken in a matter of days- often only over a weekend. It is important to note this to cross-shoppers as exercises taught in these environments often have little or nothing to do with Pilates (rather they are just exercises on Pilates-style equipment), which requires practitioners to master their craft through an extensive certification process (including rigorous, and selective, audition and assessment criteria), and then subsequent years of ongoing personal training with a Master Teacher. Pilates in a Clinical environment shares little as a modality with our, proper, Pilates, much the same as it would with Yoga, Gymnastics, or Boxing. Therefore if you are looking for progressive, integrated and ultimately athletic Pilates training a traditional Pilates practice will best suit your needs.
If comparing it should be noted that Clinical financial benefits usually only last for a short period as reimbursement options run out quickly, and subsequent ongoing costs tend to run higher than at general Pilates studios- meaning that across a year you will likely end up paying a lot more for a comparable service.
A further important note is that Proper Pilates does often refer our clients onwards to local Clinical providers when special treatment is required as we deem the relationship mutually beneficial. In return we are often forwarded on clients who are ready for general athletic practice. We always suggest shopping around for insurance policies if Pilates becomes your main health expenditure, as you could potentially find a more suitable coverage that does offer more accomodating benefits. Providers continually change their policy benefits, so it's important that you stay on top of your policy's terms and conditions.
