The roots of The Body Workshop are from dance, originally a dance school founded by Anne Gibson in 1987.

Pilates is a low-impact, intelligent movement, which is suitable for any ‘body’ from beginners to elite athletes.


Mobilise & strengthen

Pilates will mobilise the joints and work the muscles of the body to ensure they can become as mobile and strong as possible.


Prevent pain and injury

Pilates will decrease chances of suffering from injury or back pain during daily or athletic activities.


Mind-body balance

Pilates allows you to find balance for the mind and body through breath and movement.

Our teachers

Our skilled team of teachers offer the opportunity to move through and explore the Pilates exercises from a perspective you might not have experienced before. This allows for options and choice within your body that can be carried over into daily life and other exercises techniques.

At our Pilates studio our teachers have been trained, influenced and learnt from many of the leading movement schools, including Polestar Pilates and The Franklin Method.
