The Body Mechanix Pilates Studio

Our Pilates studio is part of an elite global network of Body Arts and Science International (BASI®) Pilates Host Studios and Teacher Training Centers.

We provide high quality personalized classes on the latest specialized equipment. The class options include one-on-one, duet, or group sessions. Group mat classes incorporate various pieces of small apparatus such as magic circles, foam rollers, balancing balls and weights.

All of our instructors are graduates of the internationally recognised BASI Pilates ® Academy. BASI Pilates instructors are renowned for their deep understanding of the science and art of human movement. The marriage of this knowledge with their precise familiarity of the Pilates repertoire allows BASI Pilates instructors to create classes which meet the client’s specific needs.

All of our instructors are highly skilled practitioners and are experienced in working with the full spectrum of population groups, ages and physical needs. Our clients range from Pilates beginners to postoperative clients to professional athletes. Although classes are adapted according to each client, we always treat the body as an integrated whole and ensure that each session is a full body workout.

Initial Assessment

At Body Mechanix it is mandatory to have an initial assessment by the Physiotherapist (Sue Wadley Physiotherapy) before joining the studio as a Pilates client.

The purpose of the assessment is to get a medical history on each client; pick up orthopaedic and postural problems; determine client goals and match the client with a suitable trainer. The IA provides the trainer with prior medical knowledge of the client which protects the client from injury and ensures that the training is focused on the client’s individual needs. Should the client suffer from any injuries or have chronic ailments they can be treated at Body Mechanix by the studio’s Physiotherapist/s.
